The Presidency claims that it has uncovered an alleged ongoing plots by the Nnamdi Kanu – led Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB] to set Nigeria against some of its allies such as the U. S., U. K and the European Union.
The Presidency said this on Sunday [yesterday] while alerting Nigerians and the international community of the move it described as a most misleading campaign wherein the group uses false allegation of persecution of Christians against the Nigeria State.
In a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu , the Presidency claimed that a very deep and wide investigation carried out by one of the agencies of the Nigerian Government, working with international partners, has drawn its attention to two interconnected campaigns being concurrently run by the pro-Biafra group.
”Both [campaigns] are using the cover of Christianity – and calling for a U.S. Special Envoy to be appointed to stop the ”genocide” of Christians in Nigeria.”
According to the Presidency, ”The real purpose of this campaign was to drive a wedge between the Nigerian Government and its U.S and UK and European allies.”
