The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has described as falacious and ridiculous the media report that its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has altered the registration documents of IPOB and converted it to his private estate in collaboration with his wife, Mrs Uchechi Kanu.
The group said that there is no iota of truth in the story saying that it only confirms that the DSS has run out of ideas in its propaganda war against IPOB.
A statement by IPOB Media and Publicity secretary said, “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been drawn to the ridiculous and fallacious media report that our Leader has altered the registration documents of IPOB and converted same to his private estate with his wife, Mrs. Uchechi Okwu Kanu as one of the signatories.
“The claims emanating from a faceless group and DSS-creation masquerading as Coalition of South East Professionals Network in Nigeria and Diaspora (CSEPNND), only exists in the imagination of those behind the trash.
“Assuming but not conceding to this tissue of lies, when and how has who owns and runs IPOB become the headache of these dulards? We thought they said IPOB is an organization of miscreants run by a lunatic? How come the Nigeria Government is suddenly beginning to lose sleep over the ownership of IPOB the assembly of miscreants?
IPOB challenged the carriers of the rumour to prove the authenticity of their story by supplying answers to the name of the business they said the group’s leader registered, when it was registered, the Directors of the business and their address.
It also asked them to produce a Company’s House entry to confirm their allegations.
Continuing, the statement added, “For the sake of the gullible, may we clarify that IPOB has not effected any change in its registration documents. People should disregard this imaginary tale concocted by DSS through its amorphous group, CSEPNND to create confusion.
“IPOB is still intact under one command led by our indefatigable Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“IPOB is a global movement with presence in over 120 countries. The movement runs a harmonious leadership structure in all the over 120 countries where IPOB is registered.
“We also challenge the faceless, statement-issuing self- acclaimed leaders of this amorphous group – one Prof. Madumere Chika, and another robot, Anayo Uchemba, to come out and address the press if they are real. Let them also disclose their communities and address if indeed they are Igbo.
Obviously this is the type of unverified news most Efulefus would like to promote. We are smarter than all of you combined with your propoganda. Unless you are inside IPOB , you can’t write anything real about it.
“We wonder why some media outfits would volunteer their platforms for such non-existent groups to be disseminating their lies. It’s more embarrassing when no efforts are made to verify the authenticity of such gibberish before publishing it. This is very belittling of the corporate image of a reputable media organisation.”
