Good day, Nigeria, welcome to Naija News roundup of Biafra/IPOB news headlines for today Sunday, July 4th, 2021.
Below is a roundup of top stories on Biafra, IPOB, ESN, Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafra groups:
A former Niger Delta militant, Asari Dokubo, has mocked the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, over his re-arrest by the Nigerian government.
Dokubo had threatened to destroy Kanu, who he described as ‘evil’ and also accused him of defrauding Biafrans.
The ex-militant in a video had noted that the IPOB leader receives defence funds without giving account of his spending.
Dokubo added that Kanu demanded payment from all Biafrans on a monthly basis to be part of the Biafra nation when actualized.
The Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice has insisted that it followed due process in the rearrest and repatriation of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu was reportedly rearrested in Kenya and extradited back to Nigeria last Sunday.
He was then arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako who ordered his remand in the custody of the DSS until his next trial date.
Kanu, who is facing an 11-count charge of treason, treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms, among others, jumped bail in 2017 and left the country, only to re-emerge in Israel and then in the United Kingdom.
A commander of the Eastern Security Network, the security outfit of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Emeoyiri Benjamin, has alleged that IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, ordered them to bury their leader, Ikonso, with 2,000 heads.
The ESN commander, Ikonso and his fighters were reportedly neutralized by a joint task force of security agencies a few months ago.
Ikonso was accused of leading the attack on the Imo Police Headquarters and several other attacks on security and military personnel and facilities.
Benjamin who was arrested by operatives of the Force Intelligence Response Team said Kanu demanded that Ikonso be buried with 2000 human heads.
