Radio Biafra sack Nnamdi Kanu as IPOB leader, accuses him of secretly collecting ?14 million, $22 million to purchase landed properties abroad

Radio Biafra, the controversial mouthpiece of the proscribed
Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has sacked Nnamdi Kanu as the leader
of the group and also as the director of the radio service.

Radio Biafra returned to the airwaves with a to broadcast
over the weekend and the anchor of programmes on the radio channel,
Ifeoma Okoroafor, announced the shocking sack of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as
IPOB leader. She alleged that investigation by the group has revealed
that Kanu who is currently in hiding, collected £14 million and another
$22 million to purchase landed properties abroad for himself and his

The announcement of Kanu’s sack went thus

“Mazi Nnamdi Nwanekaenyi Kanu, the former Director of Radio Biafra is
hereby dismissed and removed as Director of Radio Biafra following
extensive and intensive consultations”.

According to the announcer, the reasons for Kanu’s sack includes

“Personalisation of the Biafran struggle and derailing from the core
objectives of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as a
grassroots movement. Kanu’s actions and his decisions to incite members
of IPOB towards violence leading to the death of many innocent young
people in Onitsha, Aba and Umuahia is totally unacceptable and grossly
irresponsible. Kanu privately collected £14 million and another $22
million to purchase landed properties abroad in his name and that of his
father, Igwe Israel Kanu, in a clear case of ‘monkey dey work baboon
dey chop’. Kanu turned our collective struggle into a money-making
enterprise for himself and his father. Thus the monies contributed by
enterprising and hard-working Igbo youths across the world are being
collected and converted by one man and his father while pretending to be
sacrificing for the cause. Upon his release from detention in April
2017, one expected Kanu to drum up support for the release of his
colleagues and co-detainees such as Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin
Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi. These are our brothers, who were arrested
at the same time with him and they should not be forgotten. We hereby
demand their release. Kanu, since his release, has never spoken about
them or appealed for the release of these our freedom fighters. Instead,
he has been going about collecting chieftaincy titles and having a
messianic swagger that even allowed full-blooded Igbo men to kneel down
and kiss his feet’

The announcer named one Mazi Ezenwachukwu Sampson Okwudili as Kanu’s replacement.
