The cleric in charge of the Catholic Institute of West Africa, CIWA, in Port Harcourt, Rev Fr. Pius KII has described the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu as a “persona non grata” unfit to lead the Igbo nation.
Rev Fr Pius predicated his claim on the fact that Kanu came from nowhere to lure young people into a senseless agitation.
Addressing his members on Sunday, the Priest stressed that nobody knows Kanu’s address in the United Kingdom, UK, who he worked for or who he did business with in UK.
Describing the Biafra agitation as unnecessary, the priest urged agitators to be wary of their actions
He said, “Before 2013, I have never heard of this boy called Nnamdi Kanu. Nobody knows his address in UK. Nobody knows where he works. Nobody knows the business he does.
“Nobody knows his qualifications. Such persona non grata who has no antecedent and pedigree cannot represent or lead Igbos.
“He is not qualified to speak for the Igbos. He came from nowhere and lured pure-water sellers, mechanics, bus-conductors, Ikoku spare-parts traders, bricklayers, commercial bus and taxi drivers, hawkers, GSM repairers and other petty traders and artisans out of their source of livelihood into senseless activity called ‘Biafra Agitation’.
“Now, lives had been lost. Some people have been killed. What have they now gained?!
“Those who are calling for crisis, fanning the embers of war with the belief that USA, UK and UN will come to their rescue/support should go and ask Libya, Sudan, Eritrea, Rwanda etc what UN did for them in their times of crises?”
