Nnamdi Kanu: "IPOB will back AMOTEKUN security outfit"

The embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has commended Southwest governors for setting up the AMOTEKUN security outfit.


Kanu made this known in a press released signed by IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful on Thursday.

He assured that IPOB members were ready to support Operation Amotekun with all their might.

The statement reads in part:

"The final and definitive stance of the Biafran people is that IPOB will support Operation Amotekun with all our might.

“Regardless of the history of politics of treachery that may have existed between the East and the West in the past, our leaders have sworn to work with this generation of Yoruba leadership with the likes of Pa Ayo Adebanjo, Yinka Odumakin, Femi Fani-Kayode and Omoyele Sowore at the helm.

“I will support this generation of Yorubas that setup AMOTEKUN. IPOB will work with them. If they want one million men, I will give them to make sure the Fulani Caliphate murderous expansionism is stopped. We will support the Yorubas in all forms and by every means necessary. To hell with the Fulanis.

"IPOB will back AMOTEKUN Security Outfit. AMOTEKUN is not going anywhere. They are here to stay and IPOB will support them."

Recall that IPOB had recently commended the Southwest governors for establishing the security outfit.


vanguard had earlier reported governors from Oyo, Ogun, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti, and Lagos States had a few weeks ago in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital launched the security outfit.


The governors explained that Amotekun was established to curb the issues of insecurity in the Southwest. However, the existence of the force is still in doubt by many as a lot of conversations are beginning undermine the operation of the force within the Southwest regions.
