IPOB faults Buhari’s anti-corruption fight, EFCC’s appointment 

By Idowu Abdullah,

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) faulted President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption fight and appointments of Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to oversee his ‘war’ against corruption and looters in the country.

It explained that with Buhari’s appointment of former acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu, and the appointment of current acting chairman, Muhammed Abba Umar, after Magu was suspended over alleged sharp practices affirmed its earlier position that the present administration cannot salvage the country with the ongoing drama in the commission.

IPOB noted that the arrest, detention, and subsequent suspension of Magu remains another prophecy by its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which had come to light with drama and powerplay being witnessed from the country’s anti-graft agency.

The group, through a statement released to newsmen by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, alleged that a particular section of the country sees Nigeria as a permanent oil field and private estate assigned to them by the British government in 1960 and wondered why the commission since inception is being headed by northerners, who allegedly run it as a private estate.

“Following the ongoing suspension of the former Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, we, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, wish to state categorically to all Nigerians that this country cannot be redeemed by the people who see the Nigerian State as their permanent oil field and private estate assigned to them by the British government in 1960.

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been saying on numerous occasions, especially during his Radio Biafra broadcasts, that those people cannot salvage Nigeria unless all Nigerians join hands to salvage the country. If Nigerians continue to allow only the North to control the country, they must be prepared to welcome the ‘sunami’ that has been designed to befall Nigeria.

“Our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been vindicated by the ongoing drama over arrest, detention, and suspension of Magu. He has said it several times that this government with its cabal cannot salvage Nigeria.

“We all are aware of how the commission formed by the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, from the evidence on the ground appears to be run by only people from the North as if it is their private estate and no other tribe can head it,” the statement read.
