Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Clarifies Relationship Between IPOB And #EndSARS Protests



Nnamdi Kanu: IPOB Gives FG Only Condition To Drop Biafra Agitation

Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has rejected narratives trying to paint him or the IPOB group as sponsors of the #EndSARS protests.

This is as he explained on Thursday that the #EndSARS protest is a spontaneous and justifiable reaction by Nigerians against all forms of injustice in the country.

Naija News reports the #EndSARS protests started as a call on the government to end the controversial Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigeria Police Force, but quickly metamorphosed into a call on the government to end all forms of police brutality and demand a better Nigeria.

Kanu stated that those trying to link him or the IPOB group as sponsors of the protest are only pushing a wrong and unpopular propaganda.

He wrote on Twitter: “I’ve noted the propaganda to demonize the IPOB/me as the triggers of the #EndSARS protest. Well, hear this: The protest is a spontaneous & justifiable reaction by #NigerianYouths who have had enough of a #Nigeria that thrives on INJUSTICE. But if you insist it’s #IPOB, so be it.”

Meanwhile, Kanu has said “it’s highly irresponsible and dangerous for Governor Wike to conclude without any investigations” that it was IPOB members that killed ‘security personnel’ at Oyigbo.

The IPOB leader, therefore, warned that if any pro-Biafra agitator “loses his life in these your antics”, the Rivers State governor ” held eternally responsible.”

Kanu tweeted: “It’s highly irresponsible & dangerous for @GovWike to conclude – without any investigations – that it’s #IPOB members that killed ‘security personnel’ at #Obigbo.

“Dear #LittleHitler, if any #Biafran loses his life in these your antics, you will be held eternally responsible,” the tweet added.

This he said in reaction to the decision of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike to proscribe IPOB in the state and ordered security agents to deal with IPOB members found in the state.
