Nnamdi Kanu, the acclaimed  leader of the  Independent People of Biafra  IPOB, who is being accused of ordering the systematic destruction of property belonging to Nigerians  in Lagos and other parts of the country is once again in the news.

This time, he has allegedly ordered persons suspected to be his followers  to target the Governor of Rivers State and beat him up wherever they find him.

Wike would be the second leader from Rivers State to be placed on the hit list of IPOB.

The first was the Minister of Transportation,  Rt.  Hon Rotimi Amaechi who was ambushed in Spain.
The IPOB leader said on Radio Biafra  that Wike ought to be dealt with for daring to embark on the proscription of the group in  Rivers State.

The order purportedly issued by the Biafran has sparked off reactions in the social media, with most Rivers people on Facebook and other platforms shocked by the audacity of the young Ibo man who is apparently  issuing all sorts of orders from his hideout abroad.

Recall that Wike in a state broadcast Friday banned IPOB for allegedly engaging in activities that are inimical to the peace and security of the State.

The Governor similarly placed a N50 million ransom on the head of one Mbere who is being trailed by the authorities.

Kanu is purportedly accusing Governor Wike of attempting to dismantle the operations of the group in defense of certain interests.

Thursday, property belonging to corporate concerns in Akwa Ibom State were destroyed by a mob.

ATMs which usually dispense money to ordinary citizens outside banking halls were allegedly broken into and funds looted.

According to reports reaching our news desk, hoodlums whose identities are yet to  be known have reportedly targeted property belonging to individuals and the NDDC  in Calabar, Cross River State.

We understand that a property owned by a former Majority Leader in the Senate, Senator Ndoma Egba was attacked.

Already, Yoruba leaders are alleging that the massive destruction which took place in Lagos was engineered  from outside.

Accordingly,  South West Governors  have directed  youths from the region to defend their territory against further terror attacks.

In a swift reaction, Ohaneze, a pan Igbo cultural organisation has dissociated itself and the entire Igbo nation from the activities of the Nnamdi Kanu led group.

President Muhammadu Buhari had warned in a nationwide broadcast that the Federal Government would not sit idly by and watch some persons take the law into their hands.

Friday, the President held a meeting with former Heads of State.

That meeting may have been designed to provide them with further insight pertaining to events that are playing out across the country.

Buhari told them during a virtual meeting that their suggestion in finding the way forward at this time would be needed.
