The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has denied ordering the murder of Prophet Anthony Nwoko, a pro-Biafra supporter.
Naija News recalls that former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo, had accused the IPOB leader of killing ex-ally, Prophet Nwoko.
“It is very sad that our struggle has come to the stage when the IPOB and its leadership under Nnamdi Kanu will order the assassination and the murder of fellow Biafrans who disagree with them on the modalities of achieving our independence as a nation,” Dokubo had said.
Reacting to the allegation during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra, Kanu said: “I never ordered the killing of any cleric and if anyone thinks I did, he or she should provide evidence that, I wasted Biafran resources to kill a fellow Biafran whose death cannot help IPOB to restore Biafra”.
Meanwhile, Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian government.
