The family of Nnamdi Kanu has warned politicians in Abia State against using the name of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to score cheap political points.
The agitator’s relatives gave the warning while responding to a press conference held by a group in which Governor Alex Otti of Abia State was accused of sponsoring IPOB in order to cause terror in the state ahead of the State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal’s decision on Friday, October 6.
Kanu’s family described the allegation in its entirety as false and baseless.
The younger brother of the IPOB leader, Emma Kanu while speaking with Punch said that the group was making the accusation out of desperation.
He warned politicians to sort out their problems in the state and leave IPOB alone.
Kanu stated that the group is focused on securing the release of its leader and nothing else.
According to him, “What they are doing is out of desperation. If they have problem of leadership in the state, they should go and sort it out, they should stop dragging IPOB into their hopelessness.
“What we are interested in is the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who the federal government is still incarcerating in spite of court order to release him
“Those who sponsored the press conference must have ulterior motives, their intention being to rubbish Otti, but if Otti has won election, he has won election and there’s nothing anybody can do about it, but they should not bring IPOB into the issue.
“For what reason will IPOB attack any judge for doing his work? They should stop using IPOB’s name to score cheap political goal. Those saying Otti was sponsoring IPOB to cause trouble in the state, Which IPOB? What proof do they have to that?
“Over the years, IPOB has not been interested in their election, we don’t meddle into elections. Our target is referendum and the freeing of Kanu and stop the flouting of court orders, that’s all”.
