Biafra: Like Uche Mefor, Nnamdi Kanu's Secretary, Amaka Ekwo Resigns

Amaka Ekwo, the Press Secretary to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has resigned.

Naija News reports that Amaka was also the New Media & Special Duties Coordinator of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) before her resignation in a statement on the micro-blogging site, Twitter.

Without giving reasons for her resignation, Ekwo who was a very influential and active IPOB member, called on IPOB members and pro-Biafra activists to “direct all enquiries relating to my former posts to the right people.

Nnamdi Kanu’s former secretary tweeted: Fellow IPOB activists, Thanks for the love & support you gave me for many years. I’m no longer the IPOB New Media & Special Duties Coordinator & Press Secretary to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader. Please direct all enquiries relating to my former posts to the right people.

Meanwhile, Amaka’s resignation is coming at a time Uche Mefor has also tendered his resignation as the Deputy Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as reported earlier by Naija News.

Naija News had reported that apart from resigning as the IPOB deputy leader, Mefor has also floated a new radio station called: “Biafra Human Rights and Freedom Radio (BHFR)”.

The development is coming after Naija News had earlier reported that there seems to be a crack in the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) with Nnamdi Kanu, said to be having a feud with his deputy, Uche Mefor.

In the report, Naija News had stated that Mefor, who was Kanu’s right-hand man and former deputy leader of the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), deleted his Facebook page and disappeared into the thin air.

Barely two weeks after the report, Mefor has officially dumped the IPOB leader by Nnamdi Kanu and also Radio, which Nnamdi Kanu is the Director and floated his own radio station.

Mefor’s latest action and also deleting his Facebook page finally collaborate with the crack in the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that was earlier reported in August.

The former IPOB leader seems not to have been okay with Kanu’s approach especially with his claims that Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari is dead and had since been replaced.

Naija News had reported that Kanu had said in the past that Mefor had on several occasions cautioned him on his claim that President Muhammadu Buhari was dead and had since been replaced byJubril Al-Sudanni from Sudan.

“I keep saying this every time, my Deputy, Uche Mefor will say don’t say it, don’t say that Buhari is dead“, Kanu had said during one of his broadcasts on Radio Biafra in February.
