Leader of the Independent Peoples of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Friday described Information minister Lai Mohammed as a ‘spokesman for terrorists.”
Kanu said the minister should be held responsible for the activities of terrorists operating in Nigeria.
Kanu in a statement by the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said: ”
spokesman, Emma Powerful reads partly: “IPOB ably led by our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has noted with great amusement, a disgraceful statement credited to the zoo’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, that he supports amnesty for bandits. Lai Mohammed should be ashamed of himself for advocating amnesty for murderous bandits but justifying proscription for peaceful agitators.
“Lai Mohammed shamelessly justified Nigeria’s black market proscription of a peaceful movement like IPOB instead of bandits and other terrorist groups rampaging the North and ravaging the South. This is the height of hypocrisy! This latest reckless statement by no less a person than the Information Minister has confirmed our Leader’s position that Nigeria is a terrorist-sponsoring nation.
“Lai Mohammed has simply confirmed to the whole world that the Nigeria government and her partners in crime are the key sponsors of the numerous killer squads and terrorists terrorizing the country.
“Alhaji Lai Muhammadu has shown and presented himself as the spokesman of bandits. He has never hidden his soft spot for terrorists.”
