Terrorism: FG Accuses Nnamdi Kanu Of Killing 60 People Within 4 Months
The Nigerian government has accused the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, of orchestrating the killings of 60 people within four months.
The News Agency of Nigeria reported that the federal government made the accusation in a letter to western diplomats.
The letter dated April 26, 2021, alleged that Kanu was responsible for the destruction of property in 55 violent attacks across the southeast and south-south zones.
The ministry of foreign affairs in the letter accused the IPOB leader of issuing directives to his militia, Eastern Security Network (ESN), to carry out violent attacks within the territory of Nigeria.
The letter partly read: ”In under four months this year, IPOB has carried out over fifty-five (55) violent acts in various parts of Southeast Nigeria killing scores of people and destroying many properties.
“Indeed it would seem that the position of the (western nation) seems to have further emboldened Nnamdi Kanu the self-confessed leader of IPOB.”
According to Premium Times, the government alleged the directives Kanu issued were from his base in London using Radio Biafra.
