Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to a statement released by the presidency in which the proscribed group was accused of using Christianity to wage war against the Nigerian state. Recall that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and publicity, Garba Shehu said in the statement that IPOB has been attempting to drive a wedge between the Nigerian government and its US and UK/European allies. Reacting to the statement, Nnamdi Kanu stated that the Nigerian Government inadvertently confirmed that they spend big on diplomatic offensive. He averred that every dime contributed to IPOB will go towards ''dismantling Nigeria and restoration of Biafra.'' The IPOB leader added that they have ''destroyed Nigeria and the name will seize to exist when they are done.'' Nnamdi Kanu wrote on Facebook;
I Mazi Nnamdi Kanu have no mansion, I have no car, I have no hotel, I have no university, I have no government contract, I don’t lie, I don’t cheat, I don’t steal, all I HAVE is the grace of Chukwu Okike Abiama to do his will which is to restore Biafra in TRUTH and HONESTY. Every dime the indomitable IPOB family worldwide contribute towards our liberation goes towards the dismantling of Nigeria and restoration of Biafra, I mean every dime. Once again Nigerian Government has inadvertently confirmed that we spend big on our diplomatic offensive. We have destroyed Nigeria and by the time we are done with them, the name Nigeria will seize to exist.
