Leader of Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, said the Department of State Security, DSS, has hands in the sudden appearance of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, Nnamdi Kanu in Israel.
Uwazuruike made the claim on Monday at a press conference in Owerri, where he hit out at the fugitive IPOB leader.
“Not many of his ardent followers truly know that Kanu is not sincerely working for the independence of Biafra. His coming to Nigeria, his arrest, detention, trial, release on bail and his alleged disappearance and resurfacing, were all prearranged by the DSS”, the BIM leader said.
Continued: “How did he disappear from his country home? How did he survive the onslaught even when he claimed that about 28 people were killed during the military operation in his home? How did he leave Nigeria and what document did he use to traverse all the nations before arriving Israel? We couldn’t have forgotten so soon that the DSS seized all his travel documents.”
Meanwhile the Israeli government has faulted the pictures and videos showing Kanu praying in Israel saying it could be old as there was no evidence that the leader of IPoB was in the country of recent.
“There are no details about his recent visit to this country yet,” Israeli Foreign Ministry, Mr Emmanuel Nashon said during an interaction with some African journalists in Jerusalem.
