The Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, Lauretta Onochie has accused the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, of being responsible for the EnDSARS movement which led to the destruction of properties in Lagos State.
Sharing a video via her Twitter handle, Onochie insisted that Nnamdi Kanu gave the order for the attack.
She wrote, “To think that the blood-stained flag some youth and some not-so-youth, have been promoting proudly, is an insignia and creation of the proscribed IPOB’s Nnamdi Kanu.
“He also gave the order and coordinated the carnage that happened in Lagos during the ANTI SARS protest.”
Nnamdi Kanu Is Still Our Leader
(IPOB) has said that Nnamdi Kanu remains its leader.
The movement stated this while reacting to the report that they has replaced Kanu with Mazi Chika Edoziem.
The group in its reaction described the report as “fabricated media propaganda”.
The spokesman of the IPOB, Emma Powerful in a statement released on Tuesday said Edoziem is the head of the IPOB Directorate of State and not IPOB Acting Leader.
The statement reads in part, “We, the global movement and family of IPOB under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, condemn the useless and fabricated media propaganda and blackmail from some media houses that IPOB has another or acting leader replacing our indefatigable liberator and prophet Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“Those peddling this kind of lies are those criminals who zoo gutter media are publishing this to confuse the weak-minded people.
We want everybody to bear in mind that Mazi Chika Edoziem is the head of IPOB Directorate of State and not IPOB Acting Leader.
There was never a time that Emma Powerful, the Publicity Secretary of IPOB issued any statement purporting that our Leader had been replaced by Mazi Chika Edoziem as IPOB Acting Leader.
“The said statement was the handiwork of mischievous elements bent on confusing IPOB.”
