The Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) has debunked allegations that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has fled to the United Kingdom, via Malaysia.
Recall that the former governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu accused Kanu of hiding out in London.
IPOB said that its lawyers would compel Dr Kalu to appear in court and speak on oath, all that he knew about Kanu’s whereabout on October 17, when his case would come up before an Abuja High Court.
Emma Powerful who is IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary said: “It has come to the knowledge of the worldwide family of IPOB and its leadership, regarding the wild and widely reported comments of Orji Uzor Kalu on the whereabouts of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. This man Orji Uzor Kalu has again made claims that could only classify him as beholding to the Fulani caliphate interests.
“His spurious claim that the overall leader of IPOB and prophet of our time Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has made his way to London via Malaysia is confirmation that he would do or say anything to escape his ongoing trial.
“Worse still, he might be a hapless victim of a well-orchestrated blackmail by his masters…
“We expect many more compromised Igbo leaders to follow suit in the coming days. After all, selling collective Igbo interest and by extension that of Biafra has been their hallmark. It didn’t start today but their era is coming to an end.
“Biafrans are now well accustomed to Hausa Fulani errand boys euphemistically referred to as Igbo leaders coming out once in a while to condemn what is in the collective interest of the people. They have no qualms about conniving with Hausa Fulani soldiers to kill and maim their own people as long as their meaningless and fake interests are protected.
“Both the United Kingdom and Malaysia are civilised countries and not as corrupt as Nigeria, where there is no accurate record of migration in and out of the country. What Orji Uzor Kalu is saying in essence is that United Kingdom government officials were lying when they rightfully demanded the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“For the information of those who may have fallen for the bare faced lies of Orji Uzor Kalu, United Kingdom is an island nation surrounded by water and it is near impossible to enter without being documented. If our leader is in the UK their government will not bother demanding that he be produced by the Buhari regime. Lying it seems runs deep in APC.
