Human rights activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Festus Keyamo, has mocked the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, over its announcement that it had sacked Nnamdi Kanu as director of Radio Biafra.
Keyamo finds Radio Biafra’s decision baffling as IPOB, who had alleged that Kanu was killed by Nigerian army, was still announcing his removal ‘in the grave’.
Reports affirm that Radio Biafra upon resumption on Monday announced through one Ifeoma Okorafor that the radio was restructuring and also accused Kanu of going against the tenets of Biafra mantra thus leading to his ‘sack’.
However, Keyamo rhetorically asked if Biafra was now a zoo.
He tweeted, “So, after IPOB earlier claimed the Army killed Kanu, did they wake him from the grave to ask him questions over allegations against him before sacking him as their leader? Or did they sack him without hearing from him? Would that not be the style of animals in a zoo? Is Biafra now a zoo?”
It is left to be seen what Kanu’s representatives will have to say about this recent development.
