Asari Dokubo, leader of the Biafra De Facto Customary Government has accused Nnamdi Kanu, leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), of diverting funds meant for Biafra.
He said Kanu has turned agitations for Biafra into his business.
In a video message posted online today, Dokubo said ”This is what Biafra will be under a criminal like Nnamdi Kanu. He claimed he and his boys came to see me in Cotonou (Republic of Benin), and gave me N20 million. I hosted them and other groups from the Niger Delta in Cotonou. I provided food and accommodation”.
”I have sent lawyers to represent IPOB members and paid the medical bills for the injured members. Kanu thinks he is smart, he is a thief and a 419 who does not care about anyone but himself. This is the fear being expressed by other ethnic groups who desire to form a nation with the Igbos”.
”I don’t know how the Igbo allow themselves to be conned by Kanu. I want to ask Nnamdi Kanu; did I look for you, you looked for me. The person you sent to me was Femi Fani-Kayode who met with me at the Bayelsa State Government House. he told me there was a need for us to collaborate.”
”Some of my followers like General Playboy contacted me and linked me with Omiomio and Mefor. I never called you, you begged me to meet with you, you are an ingrate. Biafra is now like a business to you, you have no verifiable source of income. How can you be the spokesman for the Igbo race? You claimed you gave me N20 million and I betrayed Biafra. I swear with the Koran if I got a kobo from you may Allah strike me dead. You too can swear by the Torat or Chukwuka Obiama let us see”.
”You have collected hundreds of millions of Naira from southeast governors, politicians, and business home and abroad.
You have not accounted for a kobo, instead, you will verbally read out how much you have received so far with no documents to prove it. You use their money to drink champagne while watching pornography. You end near as more people will come out to confront, discredit you and ask you to account”.
