Nnamdi Kanu Idoma people disown Biafra

The group said Nnamdi Kanu who recently donned the Idoma traditional attire to court was only using Biafra for self-enrichment.

The Idoma people of Benue state have distanced themselves from the inclusion of its territory in the map of Biafra by the Nnamdi Kanu-led Independent People of Biafra (IPOB).

In a five-point communique in Otukpo, Benue state on Wednesday, May 31, 2017, the Idoma National Youth Forum for Justice said the inclusion of Benue South in the map of the defunct Biafra was a deliberate attempt by the agitators to pitch the people against the Nigerian government.

IPOB had recently claimed that Biafra spans from Itsekiri on the western boundary with Oduduwa to Bakassi on the eastern boundary with the Cameroons, and also stretches from Idoma and Igala land on the northern boundary with Northern Nigeria to the Bight of Biafra which is South of the island of Bonny.
