Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has promised a N1 million reward to anyone who gives useful information about overseas travel schedule of Southeast governors and Igbo leaders.
Nnamdu Kanu disclosed this during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra, on Sunday night, 18th August 2019.
According to him, an IPOB member provided the money for credible information anytime governors of the Southeast and other leaders from the zone are traveling. Kanu said:
So if you are working in any Government House in Southeast and you know which city in the world the governor is going to be, inform us so that we will mobilize for him and you will be rewarded with N1m,” he declared.
Kanu stated that the pro-Biafra group was against the southeast governor because they proscribed the group.
“They and not the Federal Government of Nigerian proscribed IPOB.
“They said they proscribed IPOB to douse rising tension in the region. What caused the tension, because the Milliary raided my house in Umuahia,” Kanu said.
Recall, that the former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu was beaten up and publicly humiliated by suspected IPOB members in Nuremberg, Germany where he was attending the New Yam Festival of Igbo Community.
KanyiDaily had published video of the attack, posted by some members of the pro-biafra group who allegedly carried out the attack which have since gone viral.
Reacting to the attack during the radio broadcast, Nnamdi Kanu expressed satisfaction and said it was a courageous act and polite warning to Igbo leaders.
He accused the senator of collaborating with Southeast governors to proscribed his group, IPOB. Kanu said:
“They 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?
“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”.
Kanu further accused Ekweremadu of embezzling money budgeted for construction of Enugu-Port-Harcourt Expressway by former President Goodluck Jonathan administration.
Nnamdi Kanu also listed others on the group’s overseas watch list to include Ohaneze Ndigbo President-General, Nnia Nwodo, and Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai.
On Nwodo, Kanu accused him of accusing Igbo youths of carrying out the recent killings, kidnappings and other criminal activities in the Southeast especially in Enugu State.
For Buratai, Kanu said the group will never forgive him for his role in various killings and atrocities allegedly committed by the military in the southeast
He warned them to steer clear of any foreign country for their own good.
“We have nominated 5 persons each in every country of the world who are ready to be arrested and be jailed for this purpose. Many of us have been killed so what is there in going to jail,” he said.
He praised the outspokenness of Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe and former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani- Kayode.
“We campaigned for Abaribe’s re-election because he always spoke the truth every time about what is happening in the country and today he is the highest political office holder in Igboland”
“Fani Kayode is not an Igbo man but he always stands for the truth and so we have enormous respect for him”.
Kanu also claimed that the military is beginning another Operation Python dance in the Southeast today (Monday) which is targeted at his group.
