The Indigenous People of Biafra has demanded the transfer of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, to a prison in the eastern part of the country, following the attack on Kuje Correctional Centre, Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Tuesday night by terrorists.
IPOB worried over the safety of its members detained at the Kuje prison, doubting the ability of the Federal Government to protect them.
IPOB made the demand in a statement issued Thursday by its Spokesperson, Emma Powerful, adding that its members illegally detained should be freed.
“We, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, under our great leader, Nnamdi Kanu, wish to let the world know that IPOB members were profiled and detained in Kuje Prison yards for simply being indigenous to Biafra and of Igbo race,” the group said.
It further warned that it would not take it easy should anything happen to its members.
