The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Sunday said its leader, Nnamdi Kanu has become a reference even in legal matters involving Senior Advocates of Nigeria.
The secessionist group stated this against the backdrop of the claim All Progressive Congress made in the party’s defence of the petition authored by Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The ruling APC in the defence, impugned Atiku’s Nigerianess, saying he is a Cameroonian and was unqualified to have vied for Nigeria’s office.
APC’s claim corroborated the bombshell Kanu dropped on the former VP ahead of the presidential election. The fugitive had before then, claimed Buhari died in the wake of the president’s sickness during which he frequented the UK for medical reason. Kanu went on to say that current occupier of the Aso Rock is a ‘cloned’ Buhari who hails from Sudan.
Reacting to the latest development, IPOB said Kanu has been vindicated in a statement the group released where it claimed that its leader has become a reference point.
The statement read in part: “With the ongoing events in Nigeria, it is now clear to all and sundry that any word uttered by our leader is the unquestionable truth backed up by irrefutable facts. Atiku’s nationality debate attests to this.”
