– IPOB leader given 21 days to ascend vacant late father’s throne
Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has blamed the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu for failure to complete some projects in the state.
The Governor, in a chat with the media that was reported by NaijaNews said the state is not receiving expected help from the Federal Government because it has been accused of “harbouring terrorists”.
The Governor, according to the news platform, threatened to appoint a successor to Kanu father, Eze Israel Okwu Kanu (JP) who was the king of Isiama Afara Ukwu before his death if he “Nnamdi Kanu” fails to come back to inherit the thrown according to the custom of the land.
”I have decided to take the final decision as the executive Governor of Abia state.
“Nnamdi Kanu has done harms to Abia State! He is the reason I didn’t develop Abia and complete some of the projects I promised to do because each time I go to the FG to demand money, they always tell me that my state is harbouring Terrorists.
“Nnamdi committed an offence and ran away before the unfortunate death of his father. Now it’s time to take a decision.
“If after 21 days from now and he fails to come back and be crowned the king of Ibeku, I will have no option than to appoint a king myself and whoever I appoint must remain till I leave the office,” the Governor was quoted as saying.
