Nnamdi Kanu Meets South-East Senators
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has met with South-East leaders in the Senate.
The meeting, held at the official residence of Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu in Abuja yesterday, was to allow the IPOB leader reunite with elite in the region.
The closed-door meeting, which had all South-East senators in attendance, was said to have stressed the need for unity, peace and development in the South-East region.
In another development, the IPOB has urged the public to ignore statements purportedly credited to their leader, Kanu, agreeing to the restructuring or tampering with the ethos of the struggle, which amounts to supporting President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful yesterday, the group warned those behind the nefarious act, accusing them of working for the Federal Government to scuttle IPOB’s aspiration for Biafra nation.
The group alleged that some unscrupulous persons are fabricating letters and stories to make them look as if they were written by Kanu.
The statement said: “We warn those behind this calculated campaign of calumny, especially the APC propaganda machine and their affiliates, to stop this particularly despicably immoral act with immediate effect or face the wrath of IPOB.
“Those behind this latest show of shame are fully aware that our leader is unable to speak up against some of these fabrications as he was barred from speaking to the media.”
