The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is being used by some powerful people who want to see Nigeria split, Al-Mustapha, the former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to late erstwhile head of state, Gen. Sani Abacha, has said.
“My understanding is that certain people are investing in these problems to promote themselves, but very soon the government would realize it”, he said.
“But our security agencies are doing a lot to identify them.
“We have spoken to the Northern Leaders Forum (NLF) as well as Ralph Uwazuruike because Nnamdi Kanu was his boy, he brought him up to be in the Radio House in London.
“The people creating tension in Nigeria are behind Kanu. What he is doing may not necessarily be to create tension but those behind him are investing in the tension to divide us as a nation.”
