Simon Ekpa a self-acclaimed follower of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, leader, Nnamdi Kanu has said that the agitator no longer leads the group.
He said that the activist has been removed as the leader of the group and has been replaced with Sofia Chinyere Kalu.
He stated this in a Twitter post on Thursday in response to claims that Kanu has not been removed as IPOB’s leader.
In a tweet, Ekpa wrote: “It is a shame that those who claim to be fighting for Biafra, after removing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from being the leader of IPOB, can publicly and shamelessly debunk the news, even when it is obtainable online that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not the leader but Sofia Kalu.
“Disregard those claiming that MNK was not removed as the leader of IPOB. The fact is that they removed him, we busted and exposed them and till now MNK is not the leader, rather a corporate director of IPOB Worldwide, CIC. We will explain this in a few minutes during the live broadcast.”
Earlier, it was reported that the legal counsel to embattled Biafra Nation agitator, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has denied reports that he has been removed or replaced as the IPOB leader.
The reports making the rounds that Kanu has been replaced with one Sofia Chinyere Kalu as Director of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB in the United Kingdom has been trashed by his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor.
Reports in some quarters have claimed Mrs Kalu who is the group’s Financial Secretary in the UK, has taken the position of Kanu who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Security Service, DSS.
A separatist who manages IPOB and Radio Biafra Community Interest Companies (CIC) Registry in London, UK, Ezeji Chukwuma had said Kalu is the new Director of IPOB worldwide.
