The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said there is no truth in claims by a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode that Nnamdi Kanu has agreed to work against the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari.
IPOB’s Deputy Leader, Uche Mefor, made the denial in a statement, claiming the statement from Fani-Kayode is a crude tactics in an attempt to drag the name of the IPOB leader in the mud.
It would be recalled that the former minister had claimed on Saturday that Kanu, who reappeared after disappearing for more than a year, spoke to him and that they have agreed to work against the reelection of Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.
Mefor’s statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to some deceptive and crude tactics employed by some politicians to drag the name of our leader, Nnamdi Kanu to the mud by suggesting that he held talks with such politicians to oust Muhammadu Buhari.
“We want to use this medium to state unequivocally that at no time did Nnamdi Kanu reach any agreement with any politician to participate in Nigerian politics.
“Consequently, any publication not authorised by our leader, his deputy or by the head directorate of state regarding IPOB and/or our leader is pedestrian and null and void.
“Finally, Nnamdi Kanu’s humility and courtesy in appreciating a few individuals and groups in Nigeria for what they did to assist during his incarceration cannot be construed as weakness. We invite you to listen to Nnamdi Kanu as he addresses IPOB family members and the world in general from the city of Tel Aviv in Israel on the direction of the struggle.
“It is only after this address that you will advise yourselves accordingly regarding all the lies and propaganda being peddled.”
