Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has declared that the reign of Bola Tinubu as a leader in Yorubaland is over. Nnamdi said that Omoyele Sowore, the convener of RevolutionNow Movement, is now the new Yoruba leader.
The IPOB leader made this statement during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra on Sunday, December 8, where he spoke on the maltreatment of Sowore by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).
It should be recalled that after 124 days in detention the DSS released Sowore on Thursday night following a court ruling ordering his release within 24 hours.
However, on Friday morning, DSS operatives stormed the Federal High court in Abuja and re-arrested Sowore after disrupting his ongoing trial.
Reacting to Sowore’s travails during a live broadcast, Nnamdi Kanu condemned the re-arrest of the activist and also called for his release.
He described Sowore as the “new face of Yoruba liberation”, and stressed that the activist would be made the next face of Yoruba land anytime he steps out of prison.
Nnamdi Kanu said;
”Let me tell Tinubu this, your reign as the leader of the Yoruba people is finished, Sowore is the new face of Yoruba liberation
Sowore is the new Yoruba leader. Any day Sowore steps out of prison, he would be the next face of Yoruba land.
Sowore will come out and he would lead his people to freedom. Sowore should go and fight for Oduduwa, Nigeria is useless.”
