Tony Nnadi, The Secretary General of the Lower Niger Congress (LNC), in a statement on Sunday while responding to suggestions regarding the LNC working with Kanu’s faction of IPOB, says his group will never have anything to do with leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
He said: “The door to LNC having anything to do with Nnamdi Kanu and his co-criminals in the High Command of the IPOB closed in the first week of September 2017 after four years of trying to get the criminals to reconsider their methods and actions which were very damaging to the Liberation Project. The situation is much worse now.
“Those objectionable methods have led to IPOB being listed by the USCIRF 2020 Report, along with Boko Haram, as entities tormenting the Church in Nigeria and so Nnamdi Kanu’s IPOB has put itself on the path of being categorized as Foreign Terrorist Organisation (FTO) by the United States and this will have far-reaching consequences for both our People and the Liberation Project all because one deranged Megalomaniac of a criminal seeks money and fame, riding on the waves of the unreasoning, sentimental and emotional attachment of our People to the Biafra Phenomenon.”
“On the other hand, the LNC sympathizes with the deceived , brainwashed and hoodwinked “Biafra Restoration” Footsoldiers and so decided that the Local Chapters of the LNC may on a case-by-case basis, admit those amongst such brainwashed and hoodwinked “Biafra Restoration” Footsoldiers who come to their senses into the Liberation Project.” He added.
