The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mr. Nnamdi Kanu on Sunday August 18, offered a N1 million reward for a leak of the overseas travel plan of Southeast governors.
In his 87 minutes broadcast which centered on the attack on Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Germany by members of the group he heads, Nnamdi Kanu warned all Igbo political leaders not to travel out of the country for their own good. Although he exempted Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, he added Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai to the watchlist.
“So if you are working in any Government House in Southeast and you know which city in the world your governor is going to be, inform us so that we will mobilise for him and you will be rewarded with N1 million” he said.
The IPOB leader stated that they hold a grudge against Governors and the former Deputy Senate President for aiding the proscription of the group. Also accusing the Enugu West Senator of backing the suspended RUGA policy of the federal government, Nnamdi alleged that Ekweremadu embezzled money budgeted for construction of Enugu-Porthacourt Expressway by former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration. The claim is however unconfirmed.
“They and not the Federal Government of Nigerian proscribed IPOB,” said Mr Kanu.
“They said they proscribed IPOB to douse rising tension in the region. What caused the tension, because the military raided my house in Umuahia.
“They also brought the army to raid my house in Umuahia. How many times has he spoken against the killings and kidnappings happening in his own state?” queried Mr Kanu.
“He went to celebrate New Yam Festival in Germany when his people are being killed and our women being raped. Where did they get the new yam because there is none in Igboland since all the farmlands have been destroyed by herdsmen”.
