IPOB adds Uzodinma, Soludo to list of Nnamdi Kanu’s betrayers, absolves Obiano



The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) has added the Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma and Professor Chukwuma Soludo, as well as other business men in Anambra and Imo State to the growing list of those who worked for the abduction and repatriation of their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya.


IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful disclosed this in a statement made available to ElombahNews on Tuesday, in a statement titled “ We have uncovered more Biafran traitors involved in the betrayal of our leader – IPOB “.

The IPOB scribe, however, absolved the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano from any involvement in the act contrary to the previous statement.


Recall that ElombahNews reported on July 15 that the IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary had indicted Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, billionaire businessman, Chief Emeka Offor, and the Labour and Employment Minister, Dr Chris Nwabueze Ngige, as masterminds of the abduction and repatriation of Nnamdi Kanu.


In a press release titled “ How Wike, Obiano, Emeka Offor betrayed our leader — IPOB ” issued on Thursday and made available to this medium, Powerful stated:

“IPOB… has finally uncovered those behind the betrayal of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to the evil hands of Fulani-controlled Government of Nigeria through the collaboration of the Kenyan Government and its secret services.


“Our crack intelligence unit has uncovered how the treacherous Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra State, greedy Igbo business man, Chief Emeka Offor, and Dr Chris Nwabueze Ngige conspired to sabotage our leader to safeguard their selfish political and business interests.

IPOB indicts Wike, Obiano, Emeka Offor, Ngige as masterminds of Nnamdi Kanu’s abduction


In this later report, however, IPOB absolved the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano from any involvement in the act contrary to the previous statement.


Comrade Powerful noted that Governor Obiano was found to be innocent and regretted any harm the earlier statement might have caused him.


He wrote:


“Through in-depth investigations and intelligence gathering, we, the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), have uncovered more Biafran traitors involved in the betrayal of our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his subsequent abduction and extradition from Kenya to Nigeria.


“These saboteurs colluded with the federal government to perpetrate the heinous crime.


“Just as we promised after we released the first list of these traitors that we were conducting further investigations to unravel other collaborators, our investigations had revealed the involvement of the following individuals: Senator Chris Ngige, the Supreme Court administrator of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, Professor Chukwuma Soludo and other business men in Anambra and Imo State who contributed immensely for the job.


“We will handle them.


“Recall that in our earlier release on this, we noted that we were still investigating the level of Ngige’s involvement in this abominable act, and our in-depth investigations have proved him culpable in the act.


“Other people involved will soon be published to the public; our intelligence units are still working to unravel them.


“Some Igbo business men and women who were involved in the abominable act in Anambra State and Imo State will soon be exposed to the public.


“We, however, wish to absolve Gov. Willie Obiano from any involvement in the act contrary to our earlier statement based on preliminary investigation.


“Gov. Willie Obiano was found to be innocent after our intelligence unit conducted further investigations on him. We regret any harm our earlier statement might have caused him.


“We don’t act based on rumour or mere propaganda.


“Senator Sir Victor Umeh is innocent of the accusations against him, the voice note going viral where they mentioned Victor Umeh is not true and our people should disregard that voice against him.


“Anybody involved in such abominable act should desist from such and repent because IPOB will get him or her who are responsible for this cowardly act.


“We are responsible enough to admit our error any time any day. So, we apologise to Gov. Obiano and Victor Umeh.


“Meanwhile, the following individuals based on our in-depth investigations so far played key roles in the betrayal of our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.


“They not only betrayed him but contributed funds to sponsor his extra-ordinary rendition to Nigeria.


“They include: Emeka Offor, Gov. Nyesom Wike, Chris Ngige, Imo State administrator Hope Uzodinma and Professor Chukwuma Soludo.


“They decided to trap our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu because of their political and commercial interests which they consider above the overall good and emancipation of Biafrans.


“We want to make it clear to them that Biafra will hold them responsible for whatever happens to our leader. They cannot stop us,” he concluded.
