The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has again alleged that the Federal Government of Nigeria engaged in high-level negotiation with the Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyetta to arrest its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu, a separatist leader was arrested and repatriated to Nigeria last Sunday. However, the circumstances surrounding his arrest has been generating barrage of reactions as many have called on the Federal Government to reveal how and where the separatist leader was arrested.
Recall also that the IPOB and the family members of Kanu had alleged that their brother was arrested in the Republic of Kenya. According to them, their leader had been arrested and in custody of the Kenya’s Special Police Force and was in their custody for eight days before he was eventually handed over to the Nigerian goverment.
However, the Kenya Government had since denied any involvement in the arrest of Kanu, describing the allegations as fictional, imaginary and deliberately concocted to fuel antagonistic feelings among certain section of the Nigerian people.
However, the IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, has again alleged that the President of Kenya allegedly betrayed Kanu.
According to the spokesman, the Federal Government allegedly negotiated with Kenyetta.
He further alleged that financial inducement and oil inducement were offered by the Federal Government to the Kenya government in exchange for their leader.
The statement partly reads, “From our intelligence, Kenya betrayed our Leader because of financial inducement and offer of oil by Nigeria.
“The negotiations was midwifed by the Nigerian Ambassador in Nairobi who bargained with President Uhuru kenyatta and the Kenyan Immigration Authorities. Uhuru Kenyetta was blinded by the oil money offer and he consented to this wickedness.
“The Kenya President, Uhuru kenyatta, and Ambassador to Nigeria should be ashamed of themselves for betraying an innocent man because of money. But we assure them that they will pay heavily for this treachery!”
