Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, rejected the allegations that the leader of the senate minority, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, sponsored his group.
During a live broadcast on Radio Biafra, Kanu complained that the IPOB does not receive any support from southeastern leaders.
However, he expressed his love for Senator Abaribe for always telling the truth, despite not having supported the movement financially.
Kanu recalled that the South-East legislator supported him in his moment of desperation.
He said IPOB could never attack Abaribe as former Senate Vice President Ike Ekweremadu and Transport Minister Rotimi Amaechi.
Kanu said: “I remain eternally grateful to my sureties for standing by me all through my travails, trials, and tribulations,” Kanu had said in April 2019.
“Have you seen anybody touch Abaribe?
“Touch him and you will see. Abaribe has not given IPOB one dime but the man speaks the truth, that is why I love Abaribe.”
