Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, is accusing the federal government of Nigeria of planning to shut down the Radio Biafra and the nation’s internet following his allegations against President Muhammadu Buhari

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has threatened to reveal a deep secret about President Muhammadu Buhari.
Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Media and Publicity secretary, who stated this in a press statement made available to newsmen in Awka, the Anambra State capital, Tuesday, November 6, alleged that the federal government was working towards closing Radio Biafra so as to stop the IPOB leader’s revelation.
The statement said in part: “It has been brought to the attention of the worldwide family of the Indigenous People of Biafra that plans by the government of Nigeria are at advanced stages to shut the internet.
“Following the sensational revelations by our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Radio Biafra and other media platforms about the true identity of the current occupier of Aso Rock, the APC government has gone into overdrive to conceal the truth from the masses by proposing to shut down social media in the coming weeks. This attempt to curb free speech and limit the flow of information to the millions of people that rely on the internet for uncensored truth, will not work.”
The group vowed to reveal the secret before long, stating that no amount of force and intimidation would stop it from realising its objective.
“Our mission to expose the impostor in Aso Rock will continue unabated. Any attempt to deflect our attention or that of the public is bound to fail because the truth has been established.
“The only option left for the rulers of Nigeria is to cancel the presidential elections and convene a government of national unity to oversee a referendum.
“Anything short of this will lead to an implosion of social and political order because eventually, the world will isolate Nigeria as a result of this impersonation,” the statement added.
The recent re-surfacing of Kanu, after his months of disappearance to an unknown destination following the invasion of his father’s premises in Afara- Ukwu, Abia State, by some military personnel, has continued to raise more questions than answers.
