One of the new Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) splinter groups, the Reformed Indigenous People of Biafra (RE-IPOB), has accused Nnamdi Kanu of using the Biafra struggle to enrich himself.

RE-IPOB also accused Kanu of betraying the Biafra agenda, adding that IPOB became too rigid under the embattled leader.

The break-away group also alleged that Kanu was collecting money from local and foreign sponsors.

According to the group’s spokesman, Ikemba Biafra, “The emergence of TRIPOB is a fall out of the internal wrangling in the IPOB. Members and officers of IPOB loyal to one of the spokesmen of IPOB, Emma Nmezu, are behind TRIPOB. There is nothing actually different between IPOB and TRIPOB.

“This is why we wielded the big stick to sack them to save the Biafran struggle. We urge all pro-Biafra groups to remain calm and cease any contact with Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB or TRIPOB and await further information from RE-IPOB.”

The group had earlier signified its interest to dialogue with President Muhammadu Buhari.
