The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has issued a stern warning to the son of late Odimegwu Ojukwu for trying to insult the person of Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement released by its spokesperson, Mr. Emma Nmezu, the group tobgue lashed the late Dim Ojujwu’s son for trying to malign the Biafran struggle and its leader and founder, Nnamdi Kanu. The statement reads in part: “We regret that somebody from the family of the former Biafra leader, late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu or one of the sons made this type of uninformed statement.”
“Was it not the same Nnamdi Kanu that used Radio Biafra to defend him when Ojukwu’s children said his mother was not married to the late Odumegwu Emeka Ojukwu and as such labelled him no body in the society. Without the intervention of Nnamdi Kanu on Radio Biafra, he Debe would have been found nowhere today.
“Debe should be asked where and when he contributed to Radio Biafra formation and IPOB. He has brought shame to the revered Ojukwu’s name and family all because of political opportunism.
“How many IPOB meetings has he Debe attended? Does he know we have IPOB family meeting in the same Lekki where he lives? How come he has never attended any IPOB meeting either in Nigeria or abroad? Debe should join the Director of Public Prosecution of Nigeria to try and condemn our leader so that way, he and Ikedife can get their job and contracts.”
Nnamdi Kanu was born in Isiama Afara, Abia State, Nigeria. His father is HRM Eze Israel Okwu Kanu (JP) and his mother is Ugoeze Nnenne Kanu. He attended Library Avenue Primary School (now part of Government House, Umuahia) and went to Government College for his secondary education. He later gained admission to the University Of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), where he could not finish due to incessant strikes before he left for London to complete his tertiary education.
