Emerging report reaching Post-Nigeria on Tuesday revealed that the South East Region of Nigeria has been in confusion over the alleged sacked on Nnamdi Kanu.
Post-Nigeria recalled that Radio Biafra had on Monday announced the immediate sack of Nnamdi Kanu who has been reportedly killed by the Nigerian army.
“Mazi Nnamdi Nwanekaenyi Kanu, the former Director of Radio Biafra is hereby dismissed and removed as Director of Radio Biafra following extensive and intensive consultations,” the radio had announced.
It added: “Kanu’s actions and his decisions to incite members of IPOB towards violence leading to the death of many innocent young people in Onitsha, Aba and Umuahia is totally unacceptable and grossly irresponsible.
“Kanu privately collected £14 million and another $22 million to purchase landed properties abroad in his name and that of his father, Igwe Israel Kanu, in a clear case of ‘monkey dey work baboon dey chop.”
Some of the South Easterners who spoke with Post-Nigeria on wondered how a dead man can be sacked.
In swift reaction, Human Rights Activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Festus Keyamo rhetorically asked if Biafra was now a zoo.
He tweeted, “So, after IPOB earlier claimed the Army killed Kanu, did they wake him from the grave to ask him questions over allegations against him before sacking him as their leader? Or did they sack him without hearing from him? Would that not be the style of animals in a zoo? Is Biafra now a zoo?”
