The Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), on Saturday, warned Chief Whip of the Senate, Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu, that he would be held responsible if anything happens to its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, currently in detention.
The IPOB lamented that Sen. Kalu’s ‘unsolicited’ visit to Mazi Kanu was worrisome, adding that the purpose of his visit was suspicious.
Spokesman of IPOB, Mr. Emma Powerful, said the mission of the former governor of Abia State was unknown.
In a statement he issued, Powerful said: “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU is raising alarm over the unsolicited visit of Orji Uzor Kalu to our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU whenever our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU is detained.
“We don’t know the mission of Orji Uzor Kalu over the visits and we are worried.
“We, therefore, wish to put the world on notice that Orji Uzor Kalu will be held responsible for whatever happens to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in detention.
The IPOB said it was uncomfortable with Sen. Kalu visit to its leader. The group also said it did not know whose interest Sen. Kalu wanted to protect in the circumstance.

The separatist group also vowed to hold the Department of State Services (DSS), responsible for any harm on its leader.
The IPOB wondered why Sen/ Kalu would be allowed access to its leader despite court ruling.
Powerful continued, “The DSS allowed him access against court order which all visitors, including Kanu’s lawyers comply with.
“We all knew that Orji Uzor Kalu’s name is among those who bankrolled and sponsored the extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria,” he added.
