The Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has berated the self-acclaimed President of Ambazonia, Sako Ekome.
In a statement on Tuesday by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, the group described Ekome as inconsequential, selfish and a traitor.
The pro-Biafra group stated that he cannot be consulted in the Biafran freedom fight in the south east zone.
The statement reads in part: “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the statement and claims by one Sako Ekome, a self-acclaimed President of Ambazonia, that he was not consulted before the Memorandum of Understanding between Biafra and Ambazonia was signed.
“We therefore wish to inform him that Biafra does not recognize traitors and selfish fellows like him. He is too inconsequential and unreliable to be consulted or involved in any deal between Biafra and Ambazonia.
“We don’t recognize him because he is not working for the people of Ambazonia. He has never had their mandate. We know his sponsors and whose interests he protects.
“The only true Ambazonian Leader recognised by Biafra and our leader is Dr Cho Ayaba. Dr Cho Ayaba and Co have been busy fighting for the liberation of their people and fighting the terrorist leaders in French Cameroon led by Paul Biya.
“But instead of supporting the sacrificial, patriotic and genuine efforts of Dr. Cho Ayaba to liberate Ambazonians from the Camarounian bondage, Sako Ekome has been hobnobbing with the Biya-led government of Cameroon to undermine and betray his people.”
