Nelly Ofoegbu, one of the leaders of ‘Autopilot’, a faction of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has said detained Nnamdi Kanu remains its leader.
Newsbreak reports that in a post via her known Twitter handle on Monday night, Ofoegbu also warned Nigerian politicians not to “waste” their money because the IPOB splinter cannot be influenced by money.
“IPOB-Autopilot have no leader or spokesperson. MNK (Mazi Nnamdi Kanu) is our supreme leader. In Autopilot, we are all individual freedom fighters. Autopilot does not subscribe to any individual’s opinion, and no one dictates to others. Politicians be warned. Do not waste your money. Iduu is here!” Ofoegbu wrote.
The current agitation for Biafra has its roots in the Republic of Biafra – a secessionist state in the former Eastern Nigeria, which existed from 30 May 1967 to January 1970. The former Eastern region was dominated by the Igbos, who led the secession.
