IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has come under heavy criticism on social media after he supported the assault on a former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu in Germany.
Mr Kanu, in a broadcast to members on Sunday, pledged N1 million reward for information on the foreign travel plans of all the governors in the South East region and the chief of army staff, Tukur Buratai, Igbere TV reports.
He said: “Anyone who will provide any reliable information about any country that any of our corrupt politicians will be travelling to will be awarded N1 million. Give IPOB accurate information on their whereabouts and collect N1 million. E.g. people like David Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Nnia Nwodo, Buratai, Willie Obiano and many others.
“They are about to start another Operation Python Dance III exercise tomorrow in Biafra Land. I’m sounding this warning, if any IPOB is killed again in any South-East state, we will come after the children of the governor in the state if any IPOB member is killed. We will go after your children, because we know where they are in Europe and abroad.”
Nigerians have launched attacks at the fugitive self-acclaimed Igbo leader, calling him a coward.

Boosting banditry business, Katsina Govt appoints Welfare Committee for families of attack Some state governments in the northwest seem to be rolling out policies that would rather boost banditry and contain the menace in the north. The Katsina State Government appeared to be taking to this when the government inaugurated an Executive Council Committee to take care of the welfare of orphans and widows whose parents or husbands had been killed by bandits in the 11 most affected local government areas. While the action may not be totally wrong, governments in the northwest should be seen to be taking more effective actions to combat the rage of bandits in the zone. The Deputy Governor of Katsina State, Alhaji Mannir Yakubu, who is chairman of the committee, had disclosed the appointment of the welfare intervention committee by the governor of the state, Aminu Masari. The deputy governor had emphasized that the start executive council had at its 6th regular meeting pointed out with concern the effects of the bandits violence on the socio-economic well-being of the affected communities, particularly, orphans and widows. The deputy governor said the council, therefore, constituted the committee under his chairmanship to advise the government on how to improve the lives of those affected. Other terms of reference of the committee, according to the deputy governor, include identifying orphans and widows in the affected local government areas and suggesting the kind of assistance to be provided to the victims by the government. Others include determining the source of financing for the project and co-opting any other individuals that may assist in the conduct of the committee’s assignment. The composition of the committee includes the Commissioners of Budget and Planning, Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Special Duties and Women Affairs. Other members are the Special Advisers on Community Development, Higher Education, Economic Empowerment and Social Intervention, as well as that of Political Matters, among others. The committee commenced work immediately after inauguration last Tuesday.Webby - January 22, 2021
