IPOB Suspends Nnamdi Kanu’s Brother
The outlawed group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced the suspension of Kingsley Kanu, the younger brother of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu from IPOB, for allegedly working against the interest of the group.
Mr Kingsley’s suspension was announced in a statement signed by the National Coordinator of the group in Germany, Collins Chinedu and issued by IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful.
“The lPOB leadership in Germany unanimously suspends him (Kingsley) indefinitely from the family of IPOB in Germany led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu with effect from today, the 21st of January 2023,” said the statement which was issued on Sunday night.
The group accused Kingsley of indulging in a series of anti-IPOB activities allegedly aimed at bringing the IPOB in Germany to disrepute and, by extension, disorganising the group worldwide.
He is accused of insubordination to IPOB leadership, forming a parallel leadership in Germany and violating the group’s code of conduct.
Kingsley is said to have reported a fellow IPOB member to the German police, which is against the IPOB’s code of conduct and his oath to the group.
The group said Mr Kingsley must understand that the Biafra struggle is beyond anybody’s affiliation with its leader, Mr Kanu.
The struggle itself is beyond a “family affair”, it added.
