The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has claimed that his group had already destroyed Nigeria.
Naija News recalls that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has accused IPOB of plotting to stir a global apathy against Nigeria by falsely claiming that Christians are being persecuted.
Shehu said IPOB had secured the services of lobbyists and funded non-government organizations (NGO) to drive concocted claims against the Federal Government.
The Presidential spokesman said the aim is to diplomatically blackmail foreign countries, including the United States of America (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK), into rupturing relations with Nigeria.
Shehu said the elaborately planned scheme, which had already started gaining steam with some officials of the American government, including the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, had been receiving monthly funding of $85,000 since last October 2019.
Reacting in a post on Facebook, Nnamdi Kanu boasted that by the time IPOB is done with the country, the name Nigeria would seize to exist.
He wrote: “I Mazi Nnamdi Kanu have no mansion, I have no car, I have no hotel, I have no university, I have no government contract, I don’t lie, I don’t cheat, I don’t steal, all I HAVE is the grace of Chukwu Okike Abiama to do his will which is to restore Biafra in TRUTH and HONESTY.
“Every dime the indomitable IPOB family worldwide contributes towards our liberation goes towards the dismantling of Nigeria and restoration of Biafra, I mean every dime.
“Once again Nigerian Government has inadvertently confirmed that we spend big on our diplomatic offensive. We have destroyed Nigeria and by the time we are done with them, the name Nigeria will seize to exist.”
