Embattled leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has warned his followers against allowing “enemies” infiltration.
Kanu through his lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor also advised members of the group to be careful in their dealings.
Ejiofor in a statement posted on his Facebook page on Friday after a visit to Kanu at the headquarters of the Department of State Services Abuja stated that the IPOB, led by Kanu is a peaceful self-determination movement.
“That this critical time calls for the greatest circumspect among his followers because the enemies are relentlessly exploiting the vulnerable, to sustain their status quo, and further blackmail the IPOB, ably led by Kanu, which is a peaceful self-determination movement.” he said.
He also stated that Kanu is against all forms of criminality and that the group should ensure that it does not accept criminals into their midst.
“Onyendu(Kanu) has a hard stance in condemnation of crimes and dissidents, and reiterated that he had never condoned nor supported criminality of any form. Hence, the criminal elements who are involved in making lives unbearable to our people should be immediately fished out and dealt with as such. They have no place in IPOB’s peaceful self-determination movement.
“That the general public and indeed UmuChineke (children of God), should be notified in unmistaken terms that nobody is receiving any instruction from Onyendu for the purpose of encouraging dissident behaviours and accordingly, disassociates himself from any person(s) who is mischievously feeding the public with such blatant falsehood. Onyendu stressed that he has since made his stance public, which position is clearly contained in a viral short clip, recorded during one of his appearances in court.” he wrote.
