Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has revealed why he celebrated the rearrest of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Newsmen had reported that shortly after Kanu’s arrest, Joe Igbokwe, who is an aide to the Governor of Lagos State, shared a photo of himself kneeling and raising his hands in thanksgiving over the arrest of Kanu.
However, in a post he shared later, Igbokwe gave reasons for celebrating the arrest of the leader of the secessionist group.
According to him, Nnamdi Kanu asked his boys to behead him anywhere they see him.
“Nnamdi asked his boys to behead me anywhere they see me. They did not spare my Children as they extended the same fatwa to them.
“He also did not spare the names of every other person who speaks against him dream land, Biafra. While they were looking for me I sort the face of God hours on end because I know that to kneel is to win. It was a big battle.
“Friends were calling me , family members shouted from the roof top that I should lie low. My Children said I was putting them in constant danger.
“My family lived in fear. When they could not get me they resorted to calling my phones to pour invectives.
“They threatened my Children at the drop of a hat. On my Facebook page the Children of Hate Nnamdi Kanu trained and nurtured for years in abuse and hate, bigotry, primordial sentiments, ethnic preoccupation will come in their thousands to rain abuses with all kinds of unprintable words.
“They cannot even read what you wrote to understand the trajectory . I endured it all. When they noticed that I am not bothered they resorted to propaganda and heckling,” he wrote.
