Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has reacted to the conviction of former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu to 12 years in prison for fraud.
Justice Mohammed Idris convicted Kalu on 39 counts of N7.2 billion fraud and money laundering preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The Biafran leader in a statement on his official Facebook page said that the arrest of Orji Kalu should serve as a big lesson to many.
Nnamdi Kanu said he warned Orji Uzor sometime ago to be careful of his coalition with the Buhari government and join the IPOB family but he declined.
The IPOB leader noted that the coming of Biafra in Nigeria is the only way Orji Kalu can be saved from serving a jail term.
He wrote: “LET WHAT BEFELL ORJI UZOR KALU SERVE AS A LESSON TO OTHERS and as I warned them many years ago, serve the Zoo come back in shame.
“I warned him when he came to see me in Kuje Prison that those illiterate unity begging Alimajiris from the desert don’t love him but he wouldn’t listen.
“I warned him that Fulani caliphate will not rest until they conquer, subdue and enslave the entire East and West because of their sense of inferiority complex, but he wouldn’t listen.
“I warned him of the pathological hatred these Alimajiris have towards Biafrans (Igbos especially) because our industry and ingenuity expose their mediocrity, but he wasn’t having it. He was a committed One Nigeria apologist.
“I reminded him of what happened to Ken Saro Wiwa who like him believed so much in One Nigeria and ended up being killed by the same Alimajiri he served so diligently against Biafra, but he wouldn’t listen.
“Today they are picking them off one after the other because they know IPOB won’t fight for any Efulefu. If he had known what was to become of him, he would have done exactly what I told him during our meeting, join the nearest IPOB family and support the Biafra restoration project.
“Isn’t it ironic the only thing that will save Orji Uzor Kalu now is the coming of Biafra. Will Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano, Rochas Okorocha learn from this?”
