The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has denied that members of his group are planning to carry out attacks in Lagos.
Kanu was reacting to an allegation by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu that the state command was investigating some Yoruba self determination groups and that IPOB is planning to attack Lagos.
Odumosu said: “The Command has taken notice of agitators for Oodua Republic by some Yoruba separatist groups and the threats to disrupt law and order in the state. 24 of these groups have been identified and being closely monitored.
“Similarly, the threat of IPOB to attack soft targets in Lagos is equally being put on the radar of the command intelligence gathering and other security services in the state. Strategies are being put in place to neutralise their activities.”
However, while reacting, Kanu took to his official Twitter handle to described the allegation as a lie and a plot to fuel division.
He tweeted: “The public is hereby notified that the allegations that IPOB is plotting to attack Lagos is a LIE. Lagos State CP, Hakeem Odumosu who made the allegation is a former CSO to Tinubu & their intention is to fuel division between Yorubas & Biafrans. It won’t work. This is not 1967!”
