Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Breaks Silence On Ikpeazu's Victory

The self-acclaimed leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state, was rigged into the office for a second term.

Naija News recalls that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared Ikpeazu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the winner of the March 9 governorship election in the state.

INEC Returning Officer, Professor Damian Ozurumba, who made the announcement, said Ikpeazu secured 261,127 votes to defeat his main challenger and candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Alex Otti, who pulled 64,366.

Reacting to Ikpeazu’s victory during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra over the weekend, Kanu, who is a strong critic of the governors from the southeast part of the country, said Ikpeazu was rigged into power and that his days are numbered.

“They have succeeded in rigging Ikpeazu in. His days are numbered,” Kanu said during the broadcast which was monitored by this reporter.

Meanwhile, Naija News reports that the broadcast is coming after a Federal High Court presided over by Justice Nyako in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, last month, revoked Kanu’s bail and also ordered his immediate arrest.

Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian government.
