The Indigenous People of Biafra has berated Facebook Nigeria which it accuses for shutting down the page of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, in a statement, said Facebook Nigeria was more corrupt than the Nigerian government which it was protecting. Powerful said the action was meant to reduce the popularity of Kanu.
“We can confirm that Facebook Nigeria has shut down the page of our leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
“This is not unconnected with the fact that our leader’s page has become a rich resource for those determined to expose the evil regime in Nigeria and enthrone a better life for the masses.
“We mince no words when we say that Facebook Nigeria is more corrupt than the corrupt government they are seeking to protect.
“Biafra suffered immeasurably as a result of denial of media space in the late 60s, a situation we are not prepared to allow in this 21st century.”
