Radio Biafra Sacks Nnamdi Kanu, Appoints New Leader



Fresh reports has it that the popular Radio Biara has returned to the airwaves with a shocking announcement of sacking it’s pioneer Director, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is also the National Leader of IPOB. Kanu was accused of personalising the struggle of Biafra and also enriching himself and his family.

The announcer, one Ifeoma Okorafor disclosed that the IPOB was undergoing restructuring and also announced Kanu’s replacement as Mazi Ezenwachukwu Samson Okwudili.

Prior to this development, Nnamdi Kanu has not been seen publicly since September. Unconfirmed reports has it that he fled his hometown in Abia State after the Military invaded his family compound.

Kanu was also accused of fraud, converting the group money for personal use, neglecting other IPOB members in Kuje prison after he was granted bail in April. See below for the full reasons the Radio Biafra’s announcer gave for Kanu’s removal…



(A) Personalization of the Biafran struggle and derailing from the core objectives of IPOB as a grassroots movement.

(B) Kanu’s actions and his decisions to incite members of IPOB towards violence leading to the death of many innocent young people in Onitsha, Aba and Umuahia is totally unacceptable and grossly irresponsible.

(C) Kanu privately collected £14m and another $22m to purchase landed properties abroad in his name and that of his father Igwe Israel Kanu in a clear case of monkey dey work baboon dey chop.

(D) Kanu turned our collective struggle into a money-making enterprise for himself and his father. Thus the monies contributed by enterprising and hard-working Igbo youths across the world are being collected and converted by one man and his father while pretending to be sacrificing for the cause.

(E) Upon his release from detention in April 2017, one expected Kanu to drum up support for the release of his colleagues and co-detainees such as Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi. These are our brothers who were arrested at the same time with him and they should not be forgotten. We hereby demand their release. Kanu, since his release, has never spoken about them or appealed for the release of these our freedom fighters. Instead, he has been going about collecting chieftaincy titles and having a messianic swagger that even allowed full-blooded Igbomen to kneel down and kiss his feet.

(F) Kanu threw away the original meaning of our collective struggle for personal gain and vain glorification. IPOB believes in democracy as a solid base of any modern state, the rule of law, and will always reject violence in all its ramifications.
