IPOB alleged that Nnamdi Kanu was sold to the federal government in exchange for N100 million.
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused the government of Kenya of selling Nnamdi Kanu to the federal government.
According to IPOB, the Kenyan Government and President Uhuru Kenyetta betrayed Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in order to get the N100 million bounty placed on him (Kanu) by a Coalition of Northern groups earlier in the month.
Recall that seventeen Northern Groups under the aegis of Northern Consensus Movement, NCM had weeks back declared Kanu wanted, accusing him of orchestrating the killings and destruction of property owned by Northerners in the Southeast.
The President of the group, Dr Auwal Abdullahi, while addressing a press conference, also placed a N100m bounty on Kanu.
Although the Federal Government of Nigeria has remained silent on the location of Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest, all indications show that he was intercepted by Kenyan authorities who detained him and subsequently handed him to the Nigerian government.
IPOB, however, believes that the Kenyan Government must be attracted by the monetary reward as announced by the Northern groups.
In a statement signed by Emma Powerful, the Publicity Secretary of IPOB, the group said, “We still don’t understand why Uhuru Kenyatta and some corrupt officials of his Government would prefer to betray Nnamdi Kanu and Biafrans?
“Is it because of Nigeria oil money? Is it because of the paltry N100 million bounty placed on Kanu’s head by some Northern charlatans?
“Why will President Uhuru Kenyetta sell our leader, Mazi Nnamdi to the evil hands of the Nigerian government?
“It is so shameful that Uhuru Kenyatta would belittle himself in a manner he has just done.”
