Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu is more “acceptable than any politician” in APC - IPOB
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Monday declared that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu is more “acceptable than any politician” in the All Progressives Congress, APC-led government.

IPOB made the declaration while accusing the current government of spreading false and fake news about its leadership.

“The only reason why this government could have coerced the media to carry this fake news about a non existent ‘new IPOB leader’ is because they know IPOB is the more popular than Nigeria, Nnamdi Kanu more acceptable than any politician in Nigeria.

“Not too long ago the masses were bombarded with the false narrative that IPOB had been defeated, weakened and crushed. Nnia Nwodo led Ohaneze Ndigbo, DSS and elements within the South East governors forum made considerable amount of financial gain and political capital out of perpetuating the myth that IPOB is no more.

“When it dawned on them that we IPOB are now even more potent than before the advent of Operation Python Dance II, given the successful boycott of Anambra governorship elections, they have re-strategised and re-engineered the narrative into a split within IPOB.

“Nnia Nwodo has been heard on many occasions recently boasting to his Northern handlers in the presidency, and in his words that “IPOB is riddled with factions and I’m in touch with leaders of these factions”. Nothing can be farther from the truth. He is peddling this myth to justify the money he collected from the presidency to sabotage the divinely ordained Biafra restoration project.

Man, pregnant wife, brother die after eating poisoned food in Yenagoa

According to reports, three family members have reportedly died in their sleep in Bayelsa State after having a dinner suspected to have been poisoned.

The incident occurred in Azikoro, a suburb of Yenagoa, the state capital, on Friday.

The deceased, who hailed from Ozallah community, in the Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State, were identified as Orji Igwenta (husband), Nkem Igwenta (wife) and Obinna Ogbani, Orji’s brother.

While Orji was 35, his wife, Nkem, who was said to be pregnant, was 34. Ogbani was 10 years old.

As an indication that the family of three might have died from poison, it was learnt that a rat was found dead beside the corpses.

The report gathered that neighbours, who suspected that all was not well with the family because they had yet to be seen outside on Saturday afternoon, forced the door open.

The neighbours reportedly found their corpses on the floor.

A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity on Monday, said neighbours reported the incident at the Azikoro Police Division.

He said, “They slept on Friday and did not wake up. The man used to drive a commercial tricycle and he woke up daily before 5am. So, we were surprised that his tricycle was still parked outside in the afternoon.

“We knocked on their door and got no feedback. So, we forced the door open and had to rush to the police station to report what we saw. The police took the landlord for questioning and they have been investigating the incident.”

An executive member of the Enugu Development Association, Bayelsa branch, Chief Chinedu Arthur-Ugwa, said the remains of the deceased had been taken to their hometown.

He said, “The death of our members came to us as a surprise because the husband and his pregnant wife died in their prime. We got in touch with their families in Enugu and they requested that their remains be brought home.

“We call on law enforcement agencies to unravel the cause of this strange death.”

The spokesman for the Bayelsa State Police Command, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the tragedy, adding that the incident was being investigated.
