Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has on Thursday, January 16, 2020, promised to support the Southwestern security network, Amotekun.

Kanu made this vow in a statement released by IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful.

Kanu said that the Indigenous People Of Biafra will be willing to support Amotekun with all its might, “regardless of the history of politics of treachery that may have existed between the East and the West in the past.”

“The final and definitive stance of the Biafran people is that IPOB will support Operation Amotekun with all our might,” Powerful wrote in the statement.

“Regardless of the history of politics of treachery that may have existed between the East and the West in the past, our leaders have sworn to work with this generation of Yoruba leadership with the likes of Pa Ayo Adebanjo, Yinka Odumakin, Femi Fani-Kayode and Omoyele Sowore at the helm.

“I will support this generation of Yorubas that setup AMOTEKUN. IPOB will work with them. If they want one million men, I will give them to make sure the Fulani Caliphate murderous expansionism is stopped. We will support the Yorubas in all forms and by every means necessary. To hell with the Fulanis.

“IPOB will back AMOTEKUN Security Outfit. AMOTEKUN is not going anywhere. They are here to stay and IPOB will support them.”

The governors from the six western states, Ekiti, Ogun, Ondo, Osun, Oyo and Lagos, in Nigeria converged in Ibadan to launch Amotekun, a Regional Security Network.

The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has since ruled that it is an illegal entity after youths from the North condemned the group.

Although the Southwestern regional Governors have since averred that the entity was established to curb the excesses of insecurities, there are still further discussions to be held with the President regarding Amotekun.
