The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Thursday said alleged corruption in Facebook Nigeria was way ahead of that of the President Muhammadu Buhari led-government.
IPOB made the scathing comment about Facebook in a statement it released to announce the shutting down of its Facebook page by the social media company.
The statement released by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, read in part: “We can confirm that Facebook Nigeria has shut down the page of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“This is not unconnected with the fact that our leader’s page has become a rich resource for those determined to expose the evil regime in Nigeria and enthrone a better life for the masses.
“We mince no words when we say that Facebook Nigeria is more corrupt that the corrupt government they are seeking to protect.
“Biafra suffered immeasurably as a result of denial of media space in the late 60s a situation we are not prepared to allow in this 21st century.”
Recall that on Thursday, it emerged that Nigeria dropped on Transparency International’s corruption perception ranking. The country was ranked 146 out of 180 countries – two places down compared to 2018 results.
