Gov Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Gov Willie Obiano of Anambra, Chief Emeka Offor and labour minister Chris Ngige were named in a statement by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful.
The proscribed group spokesperson insisted that they betrayed Kanu for business and political interests.
“Our intelligence unit, the M. Branch discovered how Emeka Offor of Oraifte coordinated and financed the evil plot. We equally gathered that the Nigerian Government initially refused to commit the extraordinary rendition until Emeka Offor, Nyesom Wike, and Willie Obiano, agreed to bankroll the plot,” Powerful said.
Powerful stated that IPOB investigations further revealed that the Nigerian government refused to sponsor the project but some Igbo politicians and businessmen volunteered to fund it.
He pointed out that Emeka Offor had told some people that he was ready to provide N250 million to open another Radio Biafra to counter Kanu broadcasts on the official Radio Biafra.
“Should anything happen to our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the fate of Judas will be more honourable than what will befall these traitors.
“Anybody close to these saboteurs should advise them to quickly go for the release of our Leader the way they trapped him into the net of the Nigeria Government.
“Investigation is still ongoing to determine the level of each person’s involvement,” he said.
