The Anambra Peoples Assembly (APA) has denounced the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu and his struggle for Biafra.
Coordinator of the group, Mazi Nnamdi Okorafor in a statement described Kanu as a ‘cofusionist’ acting the script of some individuals.
The group also advised Biafra agitators in Anambra state to leave adding that ‘a small boy like Kanu’ cannot lead the Igbo nation.
“I will assume that there are no men in Igbo land, if we allow a small boy to drag all of us into war against Nigeria through hate speech,” Okorafo said.
”Nnamdi Kanu is making a fool of himself, very soon his paymasters will distance themselves from him. He and his illiterate minions will be dancing alone in the market square naked. Being Igbo does not mean you are an IPOB member, neither does being an IPOB leader makes you the leader of the Igbos
“But with due respect to the right thinking and illustrious sons and daughters of Abia state. Let me ask these questions, when did an Abia man become wiser than the Anambra man to warrant a confusionist like Nnamdi Kanu to order Anambra people not to vote while his Abia governor is still on seat?
“Why would the good, wise and hard-working Anambra sons and daughters listen to a guy man who kept his wife and kids in London come here to suggest what is capable of destroying the lives of young Anambra youths. Anambra people should not allow anybody to toy with their future and destiny.
“We agree that self-determination is the right of every person or group in Nigeria, that being said. We hereby declare that Anambra state has distanced self from Biafra struggle.
“All Biafra activists and agitators are warned to leave Anambra and return to their various states of origin. We are too big to be dragged along by any person or group of persons. Anambra state indigenes and lawful residents will register and participate fully in the forthcoming governorship elections of November 2017 in the state,” he added.
Similarly, he Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has described Nnamdi Kanu as a young man looking for relevance.
This is following Kanu’s call for a total boycott of the upcoming Anambra state governorship election.
