Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu’s brother dares FG over IPOB, insists Okorocha is not Igbo

Emmanuel, the brother of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has insisted that Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha is not Igbo.

He condemned the governor’s comments against IPOB, accusing him of working against the interest of the Southeast.

“Rochas Okorocha is trying to run for the office of the president; that’s the number one thing you should understand. Somebody is writing the script that he is acting for him”, he told Punch.

“From his utterances, you can tell that he is not a Biafran. He is not behaving like an Igbo man. No true, full-blooded Igbo man will speak the way Okorocha speaks. If truly Rochas Okorocha is a Biafran, he wouldn’t be making such comments.

“What I am trying to say here is simple; no Biafran can call us (IPOB members) miscreants, nobody except those who are not in touch with reality like Rochas Okorocha. He has never protected the Igbo interest before and I won’t be surprised if he refuses to change.”

Emmanuel Kanu also condemned the declaration of IPOB as a terrorist organisation, describing the recent proscription as “laughable”.

“When a group is unarmed and doesn’t kill and has never asked anyone to kill, why would the government label it a terrorist group? They have the herdsmen who are busy killing people every day; they have not declared them as a terrorist group. They are calling us terrorists. Are they saying the Igbo are terrorists?

On insistence by Nigerian government that looters of the country’s treasury are the ones funding IPOB, Emmanuel dared the authorities to be specific.

“I expect the Federal Government to be specific when they speak. I don’t understand why the government is keeping people in suspense concerning the looters funding IPOB activities.

“They were not specific in their claims. They did not identify anybody in particular. So, what they are saying is baseless and it doesn’t make any sense to me.”

  1. Rochas Okorocha is a traitor as far as his behaviour and actions are concerned. Kanu’s junior is right about him. He wants to fill the gap as the preferred candidate should the Igbo race be asked to produce the President, but he is dealing with a race wiser than his ancestors. He manipulated APGA party only to use their ticket for APC, we say well done. But he should remember that all the days are for the thief, but one quality day belongs to the owner and that is the judgement and final day for the thief. No Muslim anywhere has built a Church for Christians, the most accommodating can only contribute quietly. How many Churches has Rochas Okorocha built for Christians in Jos or anywhere? He has already challenged God with what he has done, the battle is Gods ( QED ) Let’s watch and see.

  2. I am of the same opinion that Rochas Okorocha is not an Igbo man. that name Okorocha should be removed from his name and
    be address as malam rochas. the man is useless and must not be address as Biafran.
