Nnamdi Kanu regarded as President of Biafra in Kuje


Charles Okah has said that the troubled leader of
Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu,
lack the humility to win the hearts of Biafra
Nnamdi Kanu lacks the humility required for the
Biafran course says Charles Okah.
Okah who is also an inmate at Kuje prison,
stressed that even in Kuje prison, people address
Kanu as ‘His Excellency, President of Biafra,’
Okah who was nominated recently by two Biafra
splinter groups as their new leader, sensationally
revealed that Kanu is too proud to lead the Biafra

While accepting his nomination by The Rebranded
Indigenous People of Biafra (TRIPOB) and the
Renegade Indigenous People of Biafra (RENIPOB),
Okah said: “Humility comes before honour. Even in
prison, not a few concerned persons, particularly
Biafrans have argued that Nnamdi Kanu believes he
is already the “President of Biafra” and goes about
with an ‘entourage’ and is addressed as “His
“That is a fact I have witnessed myself. This
narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) was enough
to drive away so many of his admirers, who have
since flocked in droves and thereby swelled the
teeming number of TRIPOB members,” Okah
As the new chief executive of TRIPOB, he declared:
“I hereby issue executive order number one, which
is that the planned ’surrender’ of the Biafran flag
scheduled for January 15, 2017 is hereby
cancelled. All preparations towards the ceremony
must be put on hold with immediate effect.”
“The surrender of a people can only come from the
inside. A man may surrender outwardly, but
remain defiant inside. The spirit to be ‘free’ cannot
be suppressed. We, as a people can only be
bound by our mind and our fears,” he said.
Okah asserted: “My nomination by two splinter
groups from the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)
– The Rebranded Indigenous People of Biafra
(TRIPOB) and the Renegade Indigenous People of
Biafra (RENIPOB) as their Leader was brought to
my attention in Kuje Prison by my lawyer, Mr
Timipa Jenkins Okponipere, Esq.”

He advised hardworking professionals and other
migrants from the Biafra region resident and doing
business in the Diaspora not to be deceived by the
antics of IPOB and Nnamdi Kau, saying: “Your
numerous donations cannot bring about a
secessionist “Biafra Republic”, but they can change
the mindset of our people.”

“Your donations and financial support can also
help to improve the standard of living of our
people when they are channeled into training and
loans. Anyone suggesting to you that they want to
start a second civil war to ‘liberate’ us is a con
artist. Even an Igbo President in Nigeria today will
never seat to negotiate a break-up with anybody. A
word is enough for the wise,” he said.
He said his nomination as TRIPOB leader , indeed,
came to him as a pleasant surprise, as he is an
Ijaw –Biafran from Amassoma in Bayelsa state ,
but he decided to accept it because of its respect
for the other tribes and indigenous peoples, who
make up the rich and diverse ‘Biafra’ region.
He declared: “Biafra does not belong to a single
tribe. It is erroneous therefore for any tribe to
single themselves as owning Biafra and to say they
have been marginalized.”
“This misconception is deceitful, ungrateful and
wicked considering the giant strides my Igbo
brothers and sisters continue to make in Nigeria
today. From those who own tank farms as captains
in the oil and gas sub-sector of the Nigerian
economy, to those who have dominated the local
movie industry (otherwise known as “Nollywood”),
exporting their culture and language to all parts of
the globe.
“It will only serve the interest of a few persons to
deceive the majority of blind followers to start
believing they are slaves in this land of
opportunities though tongue and tribe may differ,”
he said.
He stated: “Under my leadership, TRIPOB will help
to change the misconception and instead, free our
minds to know that the ‘Biafran’ can begin from
the villages to the cities of our various states to
make them attractive and at the same time, hold
our public office holders to account for their
stewardship; instead of blaming President
Muhammadu Buhari for the ills which have befallen
our society.”
“A lazy workman will want to blame his tools.
Blaming the Directorate of Security Services (DSS)
or the APC-led government for the emergence of
factions in IPOB is an insult to the average Biafran,
who thrives on courage and a mind of their own.

“Some of the women who left the women wing of
IPOB did so because they could not understand
why somebody would be shopping almost every
day on the expensive Oxford street in London with
proceeds of donations pouring in from donors
around the world, who have been deceived that
their money will help to ‘liberate’ Biafra, when a
fraction of that money spent on shopping can
upgrade the businesses of those women roasting
corn and groundnut by the roadside in our beloved
Biafra,” he said.
“Indeed, my administration shall commence by
using donations received from donors to create
jobs and upgrade existing small-scale
entrepreneurs starting from the markets and
roadside from all across the Biafra region.
“For instance, under my leadership, the woman
frying akara (bean cake) on the streets of Yenagoa,
Port Harcourt, Uyo, Awka, Onitsha, Calabar,
Okigwe, Owerri, Aba, Enugu, etc., will do so in
style; complete with all the tools, training,
exposure, apparel and standard of a modern fast
food enterprise. She can only achieve this with our
support,” Okah stressed.
