The founder of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and other top leaders of his group have gone into hiding following the declaration  by the Nigerian Army that IPOB was a terrorist  organisation.

According to reports, Kanu and his top lieutenants had ‘disappeared’ from his home in Afaraukwu near Umuahia and other places he frequently visited.

 Some IPOB members, who spoke on conditions of anonymity explained that Kanu and others were advised to go underground following the declaration by the Army and the decision of the South-East governors to proscribe activities of pro-Biafra agitators in the region.

An IPOB member said, “We have to apply wisdom to whatever we are doing. We have realised that there is a grand conspiracy against Kanu and other top leaders of our group.

“Just imagine barely few hours after the Nigerian military declared members of IPOB and other pro-Biafran groups as terrorists, our own governors came up with their own outright ban of our activities.

“This definitely will give the soldiers and other security agencies the opportunity to arrest our leader and mount a deadly clampdown on all IPOB members. So, it is better to operate from a hideout for now.”
