IKEJA, Lagos – More trouble for leader of the Indegenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, whose whereabout is unknown.
The radio station which returned to air announced the sack of the IPOB leader as Director of Radio Biafra, accusing him of defrauding the organisation to the tune of £36 million. The announcer, Miss. Ifeoma Okorafor said Kanu has been replaced with one Mr. Ezenwachukwu Sampson Okwudili.
“Kanu privately collected £14 million and another $22 million to purchase landed properties abroad in his name and that of his father, Mr. Igwe Israel Kanu, in a clear case of monkey dey work baboon dey chop,’’ the accusation trailed.
“Kanu turned our collective struggle into a money-making enterprise for himself and his father,’’ Radio Biafra said, adding that the changes were part of ongoing restructuring in IPOB.
She said Kanu personalised Biafra struggle and derailed it from the core objectives of IPOB as a grassroots movement and that he incited members of IPOB towards violence leading to the death of many innocent young people in Onitsha, Aba and Umuahia.
“Thus the monies contributed by enterprising and hard-working Igbo youths across the world are being collected and converted by one man and his father while pretending to be sacrificing for the cause.’’
IPOB explained that Kanu was expected to have moved for the release of his accomplices and co-detainees – Messers Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.
“These are our brothers who were arrested at the same time with him and they should not be forgotten. We hereby demand their release.
“Kanu, since his release, has never spoken about them or appealed for the release of these our freedom fighters. Instead, he has been going about collecting chieftaincy titles and having a messianic swagger that even allowed full-blooded Igbomen to kneel down and kiss his feet.
“Kanu threw away the original meaning of our collective struggle for personal gain and vain glorification. IPOB believes in democracy as a solid base of any modern state, the rule of law, and will always reject violence in all its ramifications.’’
