Kanu not behind IPOB’s one-month sit-at-home threat – Ohanaeze

THE apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, says the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, may not be aware of the secessionist group’s latest one-month sit-at-home threat.

The Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, in a statement yesterday warned that the group will lock down the South-East if Kanu is not produced in court.

He said IPOB got information from a reliable source that the Department of State Services, DSS, would not bring Kanu to court on October 21 as a ploy to continue to incarcerate him.

But Ohanaeze’s National Publicity Secretary, Alex Ogbonnia, in response, said, “I am aware that since Nnamdi Kanu went in, we have cacophony of voices as representing Nnamdi Kanu. We have two to three denominations of IPOB now, but the one that appeals to people now is the one that is representing Nnamdi Kanu fully. So, I don’t think the one representing Nnamdi Kanu is the one issuing the threat.

“I have to thank members of the National Assembly and other interest groups in Igbo land who are working together to make sure that they use other methods to bring Nnamdi Kanu out. That we must do, to bring out Nnamdi Kanu out; yes, it must be done, but then to inflict injury on our people is not necessary.”
