Nnamdi Kanu did not take any car or $50,000 from Obiano – IPOB

The Indigenous people of Biafra(IPOB) has denied reports that its leader, Mr Nnamdi Kanu received $50,000 and two cars from the governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano.

In a statement issued by the group and signed by its Publicity Secretary, Mr Emma Powerful, the group stated that its leader was ‘too big’ to be easily wooed by any politician. They urged the general public to disregard the report.

The statement read;

“We, the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) and it’s leadership worldwide condemn in its totality the baseless, unsubstantiated and spurious inspired allegation published through one Emeka Umeagbalasi of INTERSOCIETY group, to the effect that Willie Obiano offered financial inducements ($50,000) and two jeeps to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for yet to be disclosed favours.

“It is on record that IPOB is a global organisation with a presence in over one hundred countries and territories around the world and therefore is more that capable of supporting itself financially. No politician of whatever persuasion can stand today to say he or she is a financier of IPOB because they are neither worthy nor capable of doing so.

“We want to make it categorically clear to all and sundry that IPOB is a gigantic organisation which one man or group cannot have the wherewithal to sponsor. IPOB sponsorship comes from the membership worldwide through voluntary monthly dues and levies.”
