‘Nnamdi Kanu’s trial will mark the end of IPOB’ – Presidency

The Presidency has stated that the trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, would lead to the end of the separatist group.

Spokesman for President Muhammadu Buhari, Garba Shehu, disclosed that IPOB does not enjoy much support in the Southeast, particularly among the political class.

He made the remark in response to the criticism against Buhari by a London-based news magazine, The Economist, which blames the regime for the uptick in separatist pressures and widespread insecurity.

In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Shehu also disclosed that the Federal Government was making further efforts to get IPOB rightfully designated as a terrorist organization.

The statement reads partly: “In the South-East, IPOB – which the Economist rightly describes as “delusional” – the arrest and present trial of the terrorist leader of the group is the beginning of its demise.

“The President’s administration is redoubling efforts to have IPOB rightfully designated as a terrorist group by our allies outside of Nigeria – an act which will collapse their ability to transact gains from crime and extortion in foreign currencies.

“It is important to remind The Economist and the global media that this group’s aggression and widespread presence on social media does not reflect their public support, for which they have none: all elected governors, all elected politicians and all elected state assemblies in the South-East – which IPOB claim to be part of their fantasy kingdom – reject them completely.”
