Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has slammed those unleashing mayhem in the Southeast.
According to Kanu, such individuals are charlatans.
His condemnation of the criminal activities in the Southeast comes after a self-acclaimed disciple of the IPOB leader, Simon Ekpa declared a total lockdown in the South East from July 3 to 10.
Ekpa also instructed members of the proscribed group to interrupt business activities and prevent people from carrying out their daily work.
Speaking about the development in a statement on Monday, the lead counsel to the IPOB leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor said Kanu is not in tandem with the “charlatans” causing mayhem in the South East.
Ejiofor quoted Kanu as speaking during a visit to him at the detention facility, that those orchestrating the constant attacks on the geo-political zone are enemies of the people.
He said: “Onyendu was deeply worried about the heinous activities of charlatans who are unleashing havoc/mayhem on our peaceful people in the South-East under the guise of unauthorized sit-at-home orders, for which Onyendu, for the umpteenth time reiterated his strong rejection, disapproval, and condemnation of the activities of these obvious enemies of our people.
“Onyendu reminded those behind these criminal activities that by their ill-conceived actions, they are speedily destroying the economy of the south-east, for which the federal government of Nigeria will be celebrating and applauding them.”
