The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused enemies of planting ideas on comparisms between Nnamdi Kanu and Jesus Christ.
Chief Liaison Officer of IPOB, Emma Powerful revealed this on Sunday stating that Kanu is a Christian and the Department of State Services (DSS) and unspecified politicians have a hand in the plot to discredit him.
He said: “It is dangerous comparing him with God Almighty or Jesus Christ. It is the work of enemies planted within us by DSS and some politicians. Those involved in this ridiculous scandal and deformation of character will fail without delay and God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama must deal with them…. Nnamdi Kanu is a Christian and cannot blaspheme God Almighty and his son Jesus Christ, those using his name as saviour, messiah and Jesus are misinformed and uneducated because he never asked them to do so.”
Powerful added that the Easterners and IPOB are the ones who inclined Kanu to boycott the Anambra governorship elections.
“The boycott of election in Anambra State come November this year was not the making of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu rather the wish of eastern Nigeria and IPOB members who visited him in his home town Umuahia, where the people told him that they don’t need election again in Biafra land and they are ready to boycott election because since the creation of Nigeria they benefited nothing in Nigeria elections except killing, riots and humiliation from our politicians,” it read.
“Since the announcement for the election boycott in Anambra state, the federal government and their agent the DSS mapped out strategies and huge amount of money sharing to destroy and tarnish the image of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB in general, those with this stupid story on social media platforms should retrace their steps because they will fail.”
