The group stated: “We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) wish to unequivocally state that we have one and only one leader and he is the indefatigable and indomitable liberator of our time, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Anybody claiming to be a new leader of IPOB is not only an impostor but also a fraud and should be disregarded and discarded into a waste bin.
“To lead this great IPOB family is neither by talking, nor is it by personal wish of any individual, it is rather a heavenly mandated calling and CHUKWUOKIKEABIAMA chose Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to lead his Children out of bondage into freedom.
“Anybody being fronted by the Nigeria DSS to parade him/herself as IPOB new leader is simply embarking on a self-destructive venture. We are cautioning Biafrans both home and abroad to be very careful so as to avoid had I known.
IPOB has no other leader other than our Supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU. Irrespective of where he is today, he remains our Supreme leader and founder of IPOB worldwide and IPOB is united and intact under his Command. The DOS which is the highest institutional structure set up by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is coordinating the affairs of IPOB and completely loyal to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. So nobody should contemplate creating issues where non exist.
“We know the antics of our enemies trying to use any means to break our ranks and create confusion but we must resist them. Our enemies tried this same outdated prank in the past and failed woefully. IPOB is one united global family under our Supreme leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
