Biafra: IPOB names Chika Edoziem as Nnamdi Kanu’s replacement …

Mazi Chika Edoziem has been named the Indigenous People of Biafra’s (IPOB) new leader.

IPOB declared that Edoziem would oversee its operations till the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

According to a statement by the group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, Edoziem will hand over leadership to Kanu after his release.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra (DOS), led by Mazi Chika Edoziem, is in charge of the Biafra movement’s operations; anytime our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU comes out, he turns over IPOB structure back to him,” the statement says in part.

Edoziem is thought to be the IPOB’s vice-president.

Currently, Kanu is detained by the Department of State Services or DSS.

The DSS has detained the IPOB leader since he was recaptured and brought home from Kenya in 2011.
