Nnamdi Kanu lied about being sick in Kuje Prison – IPOB breakaway group

According to reports, a breakaway group of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, the Re-branded Indigenous People of Biafra, TRIPOB, has said the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, lied when he claimed his health was deteriorating in prison.

Kanu, while speaking through IPOB’s spokespersons, Emma Nmezu and Clifford Iroanya, raised concerns over the ugly treatment the prison authority meted out to him, alleging that a poisonous gas was recently shot into his cell to suffocate him.

But TRIPOB, in a statement issued by its spokesman, Chima “Phillip Effiong” Osuji on Tuesday, revealed that during its recent visit to Kuje Prison, Kanu was “looking hale and hearty, and as fit as a fiddle.”

The splinter group cautioned Kanu against “resorting to cheap blackmail and propaganda” in his struggle for the actualisation of Biafra.

The statement reads, “Following the alarming and weighty allegations of threat to the life of Mr. Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje Prison, which was leveled against the

“Nigeria Prison Services (NPS) and the Directorate of State Security Services (DSS), by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), some members of The Re-branded Indigenous People of Biafra (TRIPOB) were mandated to visit and ascertain the facts and condition of our leader Charles Okah who also happens to be an inmate in the same Kuje prison, Abuja.

“Their findings reveal that while it is true that there was an incident caused by irresponsible, untrained and overzealous armed warders used to quell a peaceful protest over poor living conditions and food quality by indigent inmates from their locked cells, several other inmates were also affected, including Charles Okah who suffers partial blindness as a result of the indiscriminate shooting of tear gas into cells and buildings housing inmates when a tear gas canister exploded in his face as he tried to escape the fumes by moving towards his cell window.

“The IPOB allegation is a lie directed at the DSS who had no hand in the Prisons mishandling of the situation. Such propaganda is meant to elicit sympathy for Kanu and hatred against the Federal Government.

“On the day of our visit, we also happened to have seen Mr. Kanu who was also receiving visitors. He looked hale and hearty, and as fit as a fiddle.

“Instead of resorting to cheap blackmail and propaganda, IPOB should advise Kanu to stoop to conquer, humble himself and change its strategy.”

  9. Lie or no lie, it’s there responsibility to ensure the safety of their prisoners ….. Imagine the statement “Their findings reveal that while it is true that there was an incident caused by irresponsible, untrained and overzealous armed warders used to quell a peaceful protest over poor living conditions and food quality by indigent inmates from their locked cells, several other inmates were also affected, including Charles Okah who suffers partial blindness as a result of the indiscriminate shooting of tear gas into cells and buildings housing inmates when a tear gas canister exploded in his face as he tried to escape the fumes by moving towards his cell window”

    Please tell me why tear gas should be exposed to people who are trapped and have no means of escape or why irresponsible, untrained and overzealous armed warders Should be employed/or allowed to resume work if not fit…. Now Okah is partially blind …. Is that going to reduce is time for whatever he did…..
