IPOB Suspends Kanu

IPOB Suspends Kanu

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has suspended Kingsley Kanu, the younger brother of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, from the group.

The suspension of Kingsley, also known as ‘Kanunta’ took effect from January 21, 2023, according to a communique signed by the National Coordinator of the IPOB group in Germany, Collins Chinedu.

The communique was made available to journalists by the IPOB group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, on Monday.

He was accused of engaging in activities aimed at bringing disrepute to the pro-Biafran group and its member family in Germany.

The group said Kingsley had been using the name of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu to achieve a selfish agenda while also placing himself above every rule and regulations guiding the IPOB group in Germany and by extension, worldwide.

According to the statement, some of the anti-IPOB activities levelled against him include insubordination to IPOB leadership, forming a parallel leadership in Germany and flouting the group’s code of conduct.

The group pointed out that Kanu had been in the constant habit of seeing himself as above the laws of IPOB and often throwing every decorum to the winds, noting that he was just an ordinary unit member of IPOB in Landsberg Am Lech, Germany.

It warned that any member of the IPOB worldwide who chose to deal with or take orders from him on behalf of IPOB would be doing so at his/her own risk.

The statement read, “Given the above-stated infractions and anti-IPOB activities carried out by Mr Kingsley Kanu, the lPOB leadership in Germany hereby, unanimously suspends him indefinitely from the family of IPOB in Germany led by Nnamdi Kanu with effect from January 21, 2023.

“Kingsley was suspended for reporting a fellow IPOB member to the German Criminal Police contrary to the IPOB Code of conduct and in violation of his oath to IPOB.

“Issuing orders to his superior officers in the hierarchy of IPOB without the approval of the IPOB Leadership.

Imposing and parading an expelled IPOB member, Mr Ogbonna Abraham, as the new National Coordinator in Germany with the sole intent to cause division within the existing structure in Germany.

The IPOB in Germany is a registered nonprofit making organisation under German laws.

Kingsley must, therefore, be reminded that further violations of the code of conduct would have serious legal consequences.”

Sekibo Reveals Wike's Preferred Presidential Candidate

Abiye Sekibo, the Director-General of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council in Rivers State, has disclosed Nyesom Wike’s preferred candidate as Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

In response to the Rivers State government refusing to allow the PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar to hold a rally there, Sekibo revealed this, claiming that Wike had instructed his people to support Tinubu instead.

“We are aware that by credible information reaching us that Governor Wike has directed his loyalists, including all local government Chairmen, special adviser, commissioners, party executives at the state and local government level, and all other appointees to work for the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, even though you have not had the courage to boldly announce same to the people of Rivers State,” the PDP campaign D-G stated.

Remember that the location for the event set for February 11 was authorized by the Rivers state government in January, but that approval was later canceled.

But according to Sekibo, Wike instructed all local government chairmen, his cabinet members, his assistants, and executives to back Tinubu’s bid for the presidency.

The two senior PDP figures fell off after the PDP primaries, with Atiku choosing Ifeanyi Okowa over Wike, as the governor of Rivers State refused to support his presidential nominee.

“There is campaign going on everywhere and we are all aware of the hues and cries in some places while some places are very peaceful and some are not.

“But for the areas that are not so calm, we have made some attempts to ensure that they have calmness in those areas.

“The worst of the areas is Idanre, but by the grace of God, I think we have stemmed the crisis in the bud and it is relatively peaceful now,” he said.
