The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, does not require permission from the ‘cabal’ in Aso Rock Villa to return to Nigeria, Concise News reports.
A statement from the group’s Media and Publicity Director, Emma Powerful, recently, claimed an unnamed ‘cabal’ at the Presidency was surprised by the recent diplomatic feats Kanu had allegedly recorded.
He said: “Recent decisive diplomatic advances recorded by our leader have taken them by surprise.
“Our leader never asked anybody to campaign for his return to bury his mother. Why these busy-bodies would be poking their noses into a matter that does not concern him is beyond understanding.
“Nnamdi Kanu does not need to consult anybody to return here. Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is yet to make his intentions public regarding his proposed visit.
“If and when that happens, they should be rest assured that no permission would be sought from the Aso Rock cabal that rule Nigeria or anybody else for that matter.”
Kanu’s PS Challenges Nigerian Govt To Announce Date For Referendum
Meanwhile, Amaka Ekwo, the Press Secretary (PS) to Nnamdi Kanu says ‘Igbos’ are “ready” for a Biafra Referendum.
The outlawed group’s New Media and Special Duties Coordinator as well challenged the Nigerian government to announce a date for a referendum to be carried out among all ‘Igbos’ in Nigeria.
She dared the Federal Government in a tweet on her known Twitter handle on Tuesday.
The Biafra agitator was reacting to a Twitter user, Obinna Nwosu (@obi_Nwosu), who opined that should a referendum be put through among all ‘Igbos’ living in Nigeria, a majority will vote to stay in the West African country.
Disagreeing with Nwosu, Ekwo wrote: “We are ready for the test, let the Nigerian government announce a date for #BiafraReferendum Living in Sokoto, London or California & marring Hausa or White woman/man doesn’t mean that Biafrans don’t need a permanent home. Haven’t you notice that Biafrans take the dead home?”
