- He said that his faction of IPOB was working towards actualising Biafra with submissions made at the National Assembly and court while the Nnamdi Kanu faction was made of noisemakers.
The founder of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Barrister Emeka Emekesiri, has accused Nnamdi Kanu, factional leader of the group, of not speaking for the people of the Southeast, alleging he only built a “cult of gangsters.”
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu has been the poster boy for IPOB, however, Emekesiri disclosed that Kanu hijacked IPOB from him and the originators of the group.
He said that his faction of IPOB was working towards actualising Biafra with submissions made at the National Assembly and court while the Nnamdi Kanu faction was made of noisemakers.
According to Emekesiri, “The original IPOB is still going on and nothing has happened to us, it’s just that those of you guys in the media, you promote the Nnamdi Kanu faction because he makes a lot of noise and you don’t want to promote the one that is before the Nigeria government.
“You can take a telephone now and call Aso Rock, call the Senate President and ask about us, they have our documents, they have our case and our papers are before the Nigeria authorities.
“So we are moving forward and nothing has stopped us from moving forward.
“So Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest concerns his own faction, his cult, he built a cult of gangsters and so he is not speaking for us. Let it be known that Nnamdi Kanu does not speak for the Igbo nation,” he said.
