IPOB Names Chika Edoziem As Acting Leader

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has announced Mazi Chika Edoziem as its acting leader.

IPOB said Edoziem would pilot its affairs until its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is released.

A statement by the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said Edoziem would relinquish the leadership role to Kanu when he is released.

The statement read in part, “For the avoidance of doubt, the Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra (DOS), headed by Mazi Chika Edoziem, is at the helm of affairs of the Biafra movement; whenever our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU comes out, he hands over IPOB structure back to him.”

Edoziem is believed to be the deputy leader of IPOB.

Kanu is facing trial for offences related to treasonable felony and is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS in Abuja.
