Rights activist and social media influencer, Deji Adeyanju, says he advised the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to leverage on his popularity by taking active part in Nigeria’s politics.
The Kogi-born activist, in a post on his Facebook page on Sunday, said he gave the advice to Kanu after his release from prison a few years ago.
PlatinumPost reports that Kanu, who is at present detained at the Department of State Services (DSS) facility in Abuja following alleged treasonable charges, was earlier released from prison in 2017 after meeting his bail conditions.
Adeyanju, who has declared political war on + radical supporters of Peter Obi’s 2023 presidential ambition, said he told Kanu that joining politics would be a great step towards achieving Biafra Republic.
He said : “After Nnamdi Kanu was released from prison, I was the first person to secretly and openly advise him to become interested in politics and ensure he installs all the 5 Governors in the SE (South-East) as that will be the first major step of actualizing Biafra.
” They insulted me, saying I was an enemy paid by the Govt to destabilize Biafra. Today, IPOB folks that we all know on social media are all suddenly interested in elections. They never listen and hate criticism of any kind.”
