LEADERSHIP of the Indigenous
People of Biafra, IPOB, has denied
the rumour making the rounds that
they have dismissed Nnamdi Kanu
as their leader.
According to a statement from its
spokesman, Emma Powerful, the
fabricated story is the handwork of
the federal government and security
agencies to destabilise them as a
The statement noted that IPOB
has been a thorn in the flesh of the
federal government, hence the
concocted and fabricated story that
their leader has been supplanted
because of a perceived corruption.
Dismissing the sack story as
unfounded and a figment of the
mind, IPOB maintained its resolve
to restore Biafra no matter whatever
anybody does or says.
“We, the family members of the
Indigenous People of Biafra, and
its leadership worldwide under the
supreme command of Mazi Nnamdi
Kanu, the prophet of our time, wish
to clarify that the DSS/ministry of
information engineered speculations
regarding the position of our leader
is a cheap diversionary tactics
designed to test our dedication and
resolve in the run up to the much
anticipated boycott of the Anambra
election on Saturday, November 18.
“Not minding the involvement of
two key ministries of government in
the propagation of this falsehood,
we remain fiercely resolute and
undeterred by the crude antics of a
drowning government. They have
lost every sense of shame. The
only option left open for them is to
periodically opt for hyper-dramatics
in an environment devoid of any
form of investigative journalism.
“By seeking to deflect attention
away from multiple fronts of attack
IPOB has subjected the Buhari regime
to, DSS and their propaganda arm,
the ministry of information came up
with this laughable concoction about
the dismissal of our leader, which
they know, even by their own very
low standard of news management,
is so hilarious that no sane mind will
believe it.
“Biafrans and the entire humanity
know that Kanu was abducted by
soldiers on September 14, therefore
no amount of fake stories about our
leader and our movement planted
through government friendly
media houses will dent our resolve
to restore Biafra. Kanu, the only
person with absolute command
over the entire Biafra restoration
effort, remains the rock upon which
the entire edifice of IPOB is built.
The preposterous and laughable
idea that he has been sacked from
Radio Biafra which he personally
established in London and IPOB
that he founded is tantamount to
saying that the sun is no longer part
of the solar system. It is not only
unthinkable, it will be foolish of
anyone to contemplate it.”
