The Indigenous People of Biafra has stated that Governors Nyesom Wike and Willie Obiano of Rivers and Anambra states respectively allegedly bankrolled the abduction and repatriation of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
According to the statement made available by the IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Thursday, the two governors willingly offered to aid the Nigerian government in capturing the Biafra secessionist leader, to protect their political interests. The statement further revealed that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige and an Igbo businessman Chief Emeka Offor also played roles in Kanu’s current travails. The statement reads in part, “The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indomitable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has finally uncovered those behind the betrayal of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to the evil hands of Fulani-controlled Government of Nigeria through the collaboration of the Kenyan Government and its secret services.
“Our crack intelligence unit has uncovered how the treacherous Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State; Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State; greedy Igbo businessman, Chief Emeka Offor, Dr Chris Nwabueze Ngige conspired to sabotage our leader to safeguard their selfish political and business interests. Our intelligence unit discovered how Emeka Offor of Oraifte coordinated and financed the evil plot. We equally gathered that the Nigerian Government initially refused to commit the extraordinary rendition until Emeka Offor, Nyesom Wike, and Willie Obiano, agreed to bankroll the plot.”
In the statement titled, ‘How Wike, Obiano, Emeka Offor Betrayed Our Leader – IPOB’, the group through its covert information revealed that the Nigerian government initially declined to fund the operation, but these Igbo personalities offered to carry the burden.
It also disclosed that Offor plotted to establish another Radio Biafra with N250million to work against the Nnamdi Kanu-led separatist agenda.
