Activist, Deji Adeyanju has alleged that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu collected bribes from the Nigerian government to scuttle chances of an Igbo Presidency in 2023.
Adeyanju’s statement comes shortly after Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu was beaten by members of IPOB in Nurenberg, Germany recently. On Sunday, he reiterated his claim that leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, collected money from Northerners to ensure an Igbo man never becomes Nigeria’s President.
Reacting to the attack, Adeyanju, in a statement he signed, said: “For those defending the attack on Ekweremadu, all I can do is laugh. Don’t complain tomorrow when others attack IPOB or Nnamdi Kanu.”
“I have said severally that Kanu collected money from the government to compromise and run away and I maintain this argument.”
“He’s a businessman looking for where to collect. He’s not driven by ideology or love for the Igbos. The attack on Ekweremadu justifies the stand of those who have repeatedly said: “you can’t trust the Igbos with power”. And your guess is as good as mine.”
“Those sponsoring Kanu from the North are those who want the Igbos perpetually divided and those who don’t want an Igbo man to ever be president of this country which is what many of us have canvassed for over the years.”
