Nnamdi Kanu: IPOB orders members to boycott Kenyan products, airline
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has ordered its members to boycott travelling with Kenya Airways or patronising the East-Africa country’s products.
Head of membership and mobilisation of the group in Australia, Kennedy Ochi, made this known in a statement on Sunday, July 4.
IPOB accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya of betraying Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the role his country played in Kanu’s arrest and extradition to Nigeria.
Recall that the Federal Government had said that security and intelligence agencies were on the trail of the IPOB leader for over two years before he was re-arrested, though it didn’t give details on the location of his arrest.
WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that Kenyan government officials have dismissed claim that Kanu was arrested in the country.
An Official in the Kenya Ministry of Interior said that the ministry is not aware of the “extradition” of IPOB leader to Nigeria.
The statement read, “Our leader was arrested, repatriated back to a country he does not possess its passport.
“It is our wish to notify the public that President Keyatta Uhuru of Kenya has a question to answer on the role he played in the abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. He betrayed our leader and must be held fully accountable for his atrocities.
“This is pure man’s inhumanity to man and he will tell all Biafrans how much he was paid to partake in this devilish act.
“We, IPOB in Australia, support the leadership of IPOB worldwide and our able Directorate of States (Chika Edoziem) and the head of our Media and Publicity (Emma Powerful) to categorically state that all IPOB members both home and abroad should boycott travelling with Kenya Air Line; stop patronising any product made in Kenya and all businesses dealing with Kenyans, following their country’s betrayal. The battle line is drawn.
“Our question to the Nigeria government is will the abduction of our leader solve the continuous marginalisation of south easterners from the current political structure in Nigeria?”
