…Warns of assassination plot
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has advised the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, to cancel her planned visit to the south-eastern part of the country.
IPOB made the call after it raised the alarm over an alleged plot to assassinate Laing during her visit to the region.
According to an issued statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, yesterday, the proscribed group claimed it got the information through its intelligence arm, the M-Branch, revealing that the idea is to assassinate the envoy in the South-East and blame it on its members.
The statement partly read: “The global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, under the leadership of our liberator, Nnamdi Kanu, wish to advise the British High Commissioner, Catriona Laing, to be more conscious of her environment.
“The reason for this sincere security advice is to save her life. The leadership of IPOB do hereby advise that Ms. Laing must, as a matter of life and death, suspend all her planned activities involving travels within Biafran territories”.
