The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has sent out a worrisome alarm over what they saw as clandestine plot by the Federal Government through the instrumentality of its security agents to the lead lawyers in their defence team including Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor; and Barrister Aloy Ejimakor.
The plot, according to a statement released to journalists by the Media and Publicity Secretary Of IPOB -Emma Powerful, noted that “the frustrated Government of Nigeria has concluded a wicked plot to secretly eliminate our resilient lawyers, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor; and Barrister Aloy Ejimakor over their committed efforts in the defense of our leader who was renditioned from Kenya.
“The Nigeria Government is not happy with the expertise and professional prowess of these veteran lawyers and other members of the legal team to deflate the fabricated charges against our leader, hence their plot to eliminate them.”
Continuing, the statement added that “intelligence report at our disposal also indicate that this covert plan extend to the elimination of Mazi Benjamin Madubugwu, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, David Nwawuisi as well as several State Coordinators are in their elimination list handed down by the Nigerian government to its Security agencies. The Nigerian government intends to carry out this targeted elimination through the security personnel deployed in South East under the guise of Operation Golden Dawn to do the dirty job. The compromised security agents have decided to eliminate Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers once they step into any part of South East.
“We want to place it on record that these lawyers have commited but simply carrying out their profession as lawyers. The world should hold Nigeria Government responsible should anything happen to our lawyers and any of those listed above. This will not be the first time such evil plot would be hatched against them as Ejiofor has severally escaped assassination attempt on his life by this same Nigerian security operatives evidence of which are in the public domain. His attackers have twice set his home on fire after killing so many people in his house. The world must take note and pay attention to the attrocities being committed in Biafraland by the Nigerian government.
Powerful insisted that “South East remains our ancestral home and we cannot run away because we committed no sacrilege in our land. Anybody planing to kill us will be battling with the spirit of our ancestors and the spirit that own Biafraland. Those detained with our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in 2017 from Abuja prison must be very careful, at alert and conscious of their environment and movement now because Nigeria government is planning to eliminate them and other innocent Biafran youths for just no cause.”
That this information was being brought to the attention of the international community as stitch in time, so as to know who to hold responsible should anything untoward happen to any of the listed officials of the group.
