Nnamdi Kanu’s Family Clears Air On IPOB’s Leadership

Listen to article

The family of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu on Saturday, opened up on the leadership confusion confronting the group.

Kingsley Kanunta Kanu, Kanu’s brother, disclosed that his brother is ‘the only leader’ of IPOB and every other story should be disregarded.

Rumours have been flying around over the last few days that Kanu was removed as the Director of IPOB and replaced with Sofia Chinyere Kalu.

Mrs Kalu is said to be the group’s Financial Secretary in the UK.

According to Ezeji Chukwuma, a separatist who manages IPOB and Radio Biafra Community Interest Companies (CIC) Registry in London, UK, Kalu is the new Director of IPOB worldwide.

But IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, had described claims of Kanu’s removal as a gossip.

Reacting, Kanunta urged those aggrieved to learn how to address issues and not create them.

In a tweet, he wrote: ‘#MaziNnamdiKanu is the ONLY leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB).

‘We should learn to address issues and not to create one because we’ve lost men in this struggle, and we are still losing men.

‘A butterfly can never call itself a bird. Biafra is a spirit.’

Meanwhile, the Southern and Middle Belt Leaders’ Forum (SMBLF) had on Friday called for the immediate release of Kanu as well as stop to any further persecution of Sunday Igboho, who is currently on a conditional release in Benin Republic.

The Eastern Updates reports that this call was made in a communiqué issued at the end of its meeting chaired by the elder statesman, Chief E.K. Clark, and held in Abuja, on Thursday, March 10, 2022.

The leaders warned that Kanu’s continued detention and trial on charges of terrorism and treasonable felony ‘while known Boko Haram terrorists are being given VIP treatments and hosted in Government Houses is not only provocative and perfidious but a bizarre double standard on the part of the Nigerian state.’
