Resolving the disappearance of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu is more important than restructuring, which the apex Igbo socio-political group Ohaneze Ndigbo stressed at its last summit, The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated.

Condemning Ohaneze for not being bothered about the disappearance of one its illustrious sons since last year, IPOB said restructuring is a Nigerian agenda, which shouldn’t concern a pro-Igbo organisation.

In a statement yesterday by Ikechukwu Nnaji, IPOB accused Ohaneze of joining the federal government in labeling young Igbo men as terrorists.

IPOB said: “It is shameful the so- called leaders of Ohaneze will gather people in Awka, Anambra to talk about restructuring of Nigeria, which has no bearing with the peoples clamour for Biafra instead of talking about the disappearance and whereabouts of one of their illustrious sons, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”

IPOB reminded Ohaneze that it could not have had the platform to talk about restructuring if not for the bold steps Kanu took to demand for Biafra.

It noted it was unfortunate that instead of aligning with Kanu to actualise Biafra, the leadership of Ohaneze in collaboration with South east governors betrayed him by aiding the Hausa/Fulani to declare IPOB a terrorist organisation.

“That the Nigerian government ever spoke of restructuring that has emboldened Ohaneze was as a result of Nnamdi Kanu’s actions.

“But the so-called Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo feeling it will be wrong for Kanu to take the credit of the emancipation of the Igbo race betrayed him.”

Condemning the Ohaneze President, particularly IPOB said: “Nnia Nwodo came out to say that Nnamdi Kanu’s approach to the issues of Biafra was too rash and childish and would achieve no results.

“But now, he has been going about making speeches to people that call themselves Fulani who hardly understand his grammar and at the end he ends up not communicating.”

The group said it was only Kanu who understood the current structure would never guarantee Igbos their due entitlements in the Nigerian polity and without the entire race giving him support, geopolitical zone would continue to be subservient to others.
