Bruce Fein, the United States, attorney for Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has issued an open warning to the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government over the safety of his client.
Fein warned that Kanu must not be assassinated by Boko Haram and ISIS in the cell of the Department of State Services, DSS.
He had also cautioned that the price would be incalculable if Boko Haram-backed ISIS assassinate Kanu.
Reacting to the Kuje prison break, Fein tweeted: “The criminally infested Buhari administration would be well advised to refrain from using the seeming faux July 6 Boko Haram-ISIS unchallenged attack on Kuje prison as dress rehearsal to assassinate MNK with terrorist organizations as accomplices. The price would be incalculable!”
Gunmen believed to be Boko Haram had broken into Kuje Correctional Facility in Abuja last week.
The terrorists released all their members locked up at the facility. Meanwhile, Kanu is detained in DSS custody on the orders of an Abuja Federal High Court.
The Justice Binta Nyako-led court had failed to grant Kanu bail during the last sitting.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had recently raised the alarm over an alleged secret plot by the terrorists who attacked the Kuje Correctional Centre to kill its leader, Nnamdi Kanu who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS).
In a statement that was made available to The Eastern Updates, the spokesperson of the group, Emma Powerful, said the recent attack on Kuje prison was just a prelude plan by the terrorists group to carry out its plan to eliminate Kanu in his detention.
The group, therefore, warned the Federal Government of the grave danger of allowing its leader to be killed in detention, adding that it should be oblivious of the fact that Kanu has over 75 million supporters in the South East.
IPOB asserted that to avoid what it described as a looming danger, Kanu should be handed over to the British government, where he belonged or be released, unconditionally, to the President General of Ohanaeze, Professor George Obiozor, or better still to the trusted hands of the elder statesman, Chief Mbazuluike Amaechi.
