The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused the Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyetta of betraying its embattled leader, Nnamdi Kanu, over financial and oil inducement from the Nigerian government.
GoldenNewsNG recalls that Nnamdi Kanu was extradited to Nigeria on Sunday, June 27, to face trial after he jumped bail and fled the country in 2017.
In a statement issued on Monday by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the secessionist group said it have incontrovertible evidence of how Kenyatta betrayed it leader because of oil money.
IPOB also alleged that Kenyan security forces abducted Nnamdi Kanu at the Nairobi International Airport and tortured him for eight days before handing him over to Nigeria government for extradition.
The statement partly reads, “From our intelligence, Kenya betrayed our leader because of financial inducement and offer of oil by Nigeria.
“The negotiations was midwifed by the Nigerian ambassador in Nairobi who bargained with President Uhuru kenyatta and the Kenyan Immigration authorities. Uhuru Kenyetta was blinded by the oil money offer and he consented to this wickedness.
“We have it on good authority that Kenya police tortured Kanu for eight days without food. The Kenya President, Kenyatta, and ambassador to Nigeria should be ashamed of themselves for betraying an innocent man because of money. But we assure them they will pay heavily for this treachery.”
Due to the betrayal of Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB reiterated its earlier directive to Ndigbo to boycott Kenya airline, any business involving Kenya citizens or products made in Kenya.
