The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has berated Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu’s son, Debe Odumegwu Ojukwu over comment that its embattled leader, Nnamdi Kanu is not the leader of the group.
In a statement by IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, the group said Debe’s statements showed he was not properly informed about the movement and restoration of Biafra.
The statement reads, “We regret that somebody from the family of the former Biafra leader, late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu or one of the sons made this type of uninformed statement.”
“Was it not the same Nnamdi Kanu that used Radio Biafra to defend him when Ojukwu’s children said his mother was not married to the late Odumegwu Emeka Ojukwu and as such labelled him no body in the society. Without the intervention of Nnamdi Kanu on Radio Biafra, he Debe would have been found nowhere today.
“Debe should be asked where and when he contributed to Radio Biafra formation and IPOB. He has brought shame to the revered Ojukwu’s name and family all because of political opportunism.
“How many IPOB meetings has he Debe attended? Does he know we have IPOB family meeting in the same Lekki where he lives? How come he has never attended any IPOB meeting either in Nigeria or abroad? Debe should join the Director of Public Prosecution of Nigeria to try and condemn our leader so that way, he and Ikedife can get their job and contracts.”
