‘IPOB has no interest in politics in South East’ – Kanu

Published

.

Kanunta Kanu, the younger brother of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) says the secessionist movement is disinterested in politics of the Southeast region of Nigeria.

This is as the Anambra State election 2021 is fast-approaching.

Kanu wonders why ‘all of a sudden, Nigerian authorities believe in negotiation’ vis-à-vis his elder brother Kanu and the Biafra cause.

Although lately, IPOB proponents have claimed that authorities in Nigeria now want to negotiate with them, which is expected to culminate in the release of Nnamdi Kanu, POLITICS NIGERIA cannot independently verify this claim.

“Most politicians in #Biafraland are now Nolly wood actors and actresses. #IPOB have no interest in politics in South East.
#zoo media could write whatever thing they want, #ESN will remain.
#Biafrans must be safe in #Biafraland.
#FreeMaziNnamdiKanuNow,” Kanu wrote on his known Twitter handle on Thursday.

IPOB is seeking independence for ethnic Igbo of the region, and its armed wing Eastern Security Network (ESN) have been blamed for the violence, but IPOB has denied the charges.

In July, Nnamdi Kanu was re-arrested, in Kenya, and brought back to Nigeria to face treason charges.

Kanu’s IPOB is attempting to revive the now defunct Republic of Biafra, a declaration of independence which led to a 30-month civil war between 1967 and 1970.

More than one million people, mostly Igbo, were killed in the fighting or by starvation and disease.
