The Convener of Concerned Nigerians, CN, and human rights activist, Prince Deji Adeyanju, on Monday hit out at the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Adeyanju’s vitriol is on the back of Kanu’s directive to the secessionist group members to attack President Muhammadu Buhari in Japan.
Expressing his fury at the order, the activist condemned it in its totality saying the IPOB leader is in the trenches for pecuniary gains.
His word, “Permit me to start with the words of Martin Luther King: “In spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace. We adopt the means of nonviolence because our end is a community at peace with itself. We will try to persuade with our words, but if our words fail, we will try to persuade with our acts.”
“You have heard me say before and I will say again, Nnamdi Kanu is only a businessman looking for where to collect money. He is not driven by ideology or love for the Igbos.
“After attacking his fellow Igbo brother, Senator Ike Ekweremadu who played a significant role in ensuring his release from Kuje Prison in Germany, Kanu the businessman has called on some of his miscreants/supporters to attack President Buhari as he visits Japan.
“Those who were doubting me when I said Kanu is being sponsored by some elements in the North can now see the clear handwriting on the wall. How can any reasonable person openly call for an attack on the president of a nation on foreign soil? Even if you don’t like Buhari or what he represents, at least we must respect the fact that he is the president of our country.
“Do you think Kanu does not know the danger of attacking Buhari in Japan. He knows but those sponsoring him are doing everything humanly possible to ensure no Igbo man ever rule Nigeria and also put peace-loving Igbos in the North in danger by setting them up for reprisal attacks by Buhari’s fanatical supporters.
“Kanu only worships money and will not stop the verbal attacks on Igbo leaders in as much as his paymasters continue to send him alerts.”
