Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has allegedly denied being a member of the separatist group. 

According to federal government lead counsel, Shuaib Magaji Labaran, disclosed the shocking revelation during an interview with BBC news. 

Labaran said the disturbing denial after the trial of Nnamdi Kanu was adjourned by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja. 

Meanwhile, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lead counsel of IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu has debunked Shuaib Magaji Labaran claim, saying Nnamdi Kanu denied IPOB been a terrorist group.  

In a statement signed by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, January 20th 2022 titled; “ONYENDU MAZI NNAMDI KANU NEVER DENIED BEING THE LEADER OF IPOB – LET THE RECORDS BE SET STRAIGHT”: 

He said that, our attention has been drawn to the deliberate misrepresentation/falsehood and wrong narratives being perpetuated by some mischief makers, and which is unfortunately gradually gaining prominence on social media platforms and print media. Hence, it is pertinent that we provide clarification and clear the doubt.  

S.M. Labaran Esq., who stood in yesterday for the Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation is a colleague I hold in high esteem, but I shall resist every mischievous ploy being adopted to misinform the unsuspecting members of the public who were not privy to the details of the proceedings in court yesterday, with a wrong and mischievous interpretation of the purport of the Plea taken by our indefatigable Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.  

For the records, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu never denied being the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) while taking his plea, but only STOUTLY DENIED THE FACT THAT IPOB IS A TERRORIST ORGANISATION AND THAT BEING ITS LEADER IS AN OFFENCE, which position is well informed.  

Members of the Public should be well guided that the status of the black market order proscribing IPOB is a subject of Appeal in Appeal Number: APPEAL NO. CA/A/214/2018, pending before the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division. 

That being said, it is only laughable that the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) in their desperate but futile attempt to give a dog a bad name in order to hang it, brought a charge bordering on the status of IPOB, a subject matter of a competent Appeal, where issues has been joined with the same FGN. 

Therefore, be properly guided UmuChineke, because we have sufficiently addressed the emptiness of that count and entire charge in our compelling Submissions before the Court, now adjourned to be heard on the 16th day of February, 2022.  

We do not wish to dwell further on this subject, but be rightly informed that Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu never denied being the Leader of IPOB while taking his Plea yesterday, he stated.
