United States Associate Professor and social critic, Farooq Kperogi, on Tuesday said detained leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is “the author” of the continuous killings in the South East geopolitical zone.
Newsbreak reports that security in Nigeria’s South-east has degenerated in recent times with attacks by armed persons reported almost on a daily basis across the region.
The attacks often target security agencies, government officials, non-natives, and public facilities.
Kperogi – like the Nigerian federal government – blamed the non-stop violence on IPOB and Kanu.
According to him, the present scenario playing out in the southeast is a ‘materialization of Kanu’s vision’.
This news medium reports that IPOB advocates for the break-up of Nigeria, and a sovereign nation of Biafra.
“I took my time to listen to Kanu on Radio Biafra from 2015 to 2016. He is clearly the author of the bloodstained violence that now grips the Southeast. That’s the materialization of his vision. Yet, leaders from the region worship him.
“Since leaders of the Southeast are scared of IPOB, the Federal Government must act fast and decisively both to stop IPOB’s murderous madness and to prevent retaliatory killings in the North,” Kperogi wrote in a piece today.
