NNAMDI KANU: Watch out for Nigerian government sponsored protests against Kanu, IPOB alerts supporters

Watch out for Nigeria government sponsored protests against Kanu, IPOB alerts supporters

The Indigenous Peo­ples of Biafra (IPOB) has alerted its sup­porters over alleged plots by opponents of the strug­gle for the actualization of Biafran Republic to organise protests against its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu, to create the impression that the Igbo are disenchanted with his leadership.

The group alleged that the organisers of the protests are also mobilising north­erners in the South East states under the breakaway Biafra Republic to stage the anti-Kanu protest on or be­fore September 26 when his trial will come up before an Abuja High Court.

In a statement issued yesterday by its Media and Publicity Officer, Emma Powerful, IPOB alleged that the motive of the an­ti-Kanu protests is to fur­ther deceive gullible minds that the pro-Biafra group is factionalised, insisting that “there is no division what­soever in IPOB.”

Powerful said that the lat­est strategy was adopted by the “enemies of Biafran independ­ence, having failed in their des­peration to create imaginary splinter groups in IPOB.”
“I want to let the whole world know again that there is no division in IPOB under Nnamdi Kanu; we are intact and no amount of propagan­da and blackmail can distract us,” Powerful said, adding:
“IPOB’s intelligent unit has uncovered plans by the Nige­rian government to mobilise some Hausa/Fulani people living in Biafraland and some unscrupulous Igbo individuals who are bent on sabotaging the restoration of God’s nation Bi­afra.

“The people were paid heavily to organise protests against the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, before or on the 26/9/2016, the day he is to appear in court in Abuja. They are to organise the protest in all Biafraland where Hausa people live in order to create the im­pressions that there is division in the IPOB family worldwide.
“However, we are calling on the general public and the people of the world to disregard and shun the concocted pro­tests or rallies against our lead­er, Nnamdi Kanu by the gov­ernment of the day in Nigeria.”
According to IPOB, Pow­erful remains its Media and Publicity Officer under the leadership of Kanu, dismiss­ing the “self- acclaimed Philip Effiong Osuji-led TRIBOB and REIPOB” as “a faceless imag­inary creation of the security agencies”.

IPOB said it would no longer respond to any fur­ther claims of the “imaginary splinter group as doing so will amount to dignifying them and distracting IPOB from the Bia­fra project”.
It also pointed accusing fin­gers at the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND).
IPOB urged its supporters to disregard the rumours be­ing peddled by MEND which wants to drag its (IPOB’s) repu­tation to the mud as it (MEND)has already done its own.
