‘The IPOB is running a well-known (source-of-financing-unknown) international campaign intended to damage the reputation of Nigeria and its government in order to further their cause of “independence”.
It baffles the entire world how these group of people are able to run worldwide radio broadcast and satellite television network, yet nobody can tell who is sponsoring them. Its very urgent that the world leaders need to probe these groups to reveals their source of finance or get more prohibition.
“And nnamdi KANU on the other hand jumped bail in Nigeria. He frequently travels on a Nigerian passport but urged his supporters to burn their passports!
“The IPOB barely mention their aims in their publicity; neither do they mention that their own leadership do not claim to be Christian. Yet, their media and lobbying campaign has focused near-exclusively on promoting matters related to Christianity in Nigeria, promulgating false claims that a government with 50 per cent of its cabinet and 50 per cent of its State Governors who are Christian somehow works against Christians”.
Nnamdi Kanu, the leader and found of IPOB has reacted to Garba’s statement, but said that his group will continue tormenting Nigeria home and abroad until it seize to exist in world map
