Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been slammed by an Ndigbo group, the Ogbia Brotherhood Youth Council (OBYC) for describing the immediate past president of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan as a weak and incompetent leader.
The group’s comment was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday, June 27 by the president Laguo Gilbert, reports state.
According to Gilbert, Kanu’s statement would not help his struggle to achieve a sovereign Biafran state.
Gilbert stated: “The OBYC advises Kanu to learn from the mistakes made by the group in the past and its predecessor, as this will be necessary to implement its vision.
Ex Goodluck Jonathan
“Bringing former President Goodluck Jonathan into these issues in such a disrespectful manner will neither help nor give credence to its rancor.
“OBYC, therefore, warns Nnamdi Kanu to desist forthwith from linking a man of honour like Dr. Jonathan into his directionless agitation.”
