Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has alleged that the actual reason why Supreme Court sacked the All Progressives Congress (APC) David Lyon and declared Douye Diri of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as the governor-elect of Bayelsa State is to divert the attention of Nigerians from the judgment it delivered in Imo State in favour of Hope Uzodinma.
The IPOB leader made this statement during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra on Thursday evening in reaction to Lyon’s sacking by the Supreme Court.
Reacting to the judgment, Kanu faulted the Supreme Court, stressing that the apex court should have ordered a rerun election in Bayelsa State instead of declaring PDP’s candidate as the winner of the election.
His words: “Why won’t Somalia be better than Nigeria, where the Supreme court thinks they have the power to decide electoral outcomes. Instead of ordering a rerun of the election, let the whole world know who won the election, no they won’t, they are in Abuja deciding who wins and who doesn’t win, can you imagine such rubbish?
“I am not a fan of APC, God forbid, I can never be, look at Bayelsa, the same thing. What is important to them is Imo State, the heart of Biafra, that heart, that is what they want not any other place.
“Why they did what they did in Bayelsa is to allow Hope Uzodinma to remain in Owerri, they didn’t do it because they want to prove justice ofcourse not, so they will say PDP how can you complain, didn’t we give you Bayelsa? That’s how Nigerians think.”

The best of the very best
The chosen children of the Most High
The hardest core of them all
The most unique and formidable assembly of men, women and children on this earth
The only movement that march and the foundations of hell tremble; even Satan is afraid of IPOB
With my parents out of the way, very soon we shall march and the Sun will not set on that glorious day until the vandals are vanquished and the tricolour of the rising sun raised never to be lowered again.
I thank this great family of IPOB all over the world for the love you showed my parents, who are resting in the bosom of the Most High. From the bottom of my heart I thank all those that put the enemies to shame today, but above all I thank Almighty God Chukwu Okeke Abiama pure ime ihe nile for his infinite grace upon our lives.
IPOB! One Family!!
