Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has debunked the claim by Hakeem Odumosu, the Lagos Commissioner of Police, that the group is plotting to stage an attack in Lagos State.
Kanu made the rebuttal in a post on his Twitter handle on Monday.
Odumosu had during a security summit chaired by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Governor of Lagos State, on Monday said the state Police Command is investigating the threat by IPOB to attack soft targets in the state, as well the activities of the separatist group, Oodua Republic.
But reacting, Kanu stated that the security alert raised by the Lagos CP is a lie.
According to him, the allegation by Odumosu is a plot to fuel division between the Yorubas and Biafrans.
The public is hereby notified that the allegations that IPOB is plotting to attack Lagos is a LIE. Lagos State CP, Hakeem Odumosu who made the allegation is a former CSO to Tinubu & their intention is to fuel division between Yorubas & Biafrans. It won’t work.
