The Indigenous People of Biafra, on Monday, noted that its has gathered intelligence that Nigeria and Kenya struck a dirty deal before arresting its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The group disclosed this while insisting that the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyetta betrayed Kanu.
The spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful, further stated that the group has evidence of how Kenyetta betrayed Kanu and tried to cover up their tracks.
Powerful made this claim while reacting to a statement by the Kenyan Ambassador to Nigeria, Wilfred Machage denying the involvement of his country in the re-arrest of Kanu by the Nigerian government.
The statement reads, “The attention of the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been drawn to the lame denial by the Kenyan Ambassador to Nigeria, Wilfred Machage, of Kenya’s involvement in the criminal abduction of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
This denial is another smart but belated attempt to cover up their atrocity but unfortunately for them, we already have incontrovertible evidence of how the dirty deal between Nigeria and Kenya was struck. Our intelligence gathering has revealed all those involved in this heinous crime.
“The fact remains that Kenyan security forces abducted our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at the Nairobi International Airport and tortured him for eight days. Our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was travelling with a British passport.
“Contrary to claims by the Nigeria Government, our leader was not travelling with any Nigeria passport because he is not a Nigerian. He was born in Biafra and he has since publicly renounced any connections with Nigeria.”
