Speaking during an interaction with some African journalists in Jerusalem, the spokesman of the Israeli Foreign Ministry, Mr Emmanuel Nashon said there was no evidence that the leader of IPoB was in their country of recent. “There are no details about his recent visit to this country yet,” Nashon said adding that the pictures and videos could be old ones. Speaking on their relationship with Africa, Nashon said Israel had been misconstrued, adding that they were getting back to their old friends
In a related development, the people of South East have been advised to treat the touted disappearance and resurfacing of Kanu, as “a non-issue because it was carefully pre-arranged by the Department of State Services, DSS.” Leader of Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, stated this yesterday, at a press conference in Owerri, to react to Kanu’s reappearance in Isreal and broadcast. “Not many of his ardent followers truly know that Kanu is not sincerely working for the independence of Biafra. His coming to Nigeria, his arrest, detention, trial, release on bail and his alleged disappearance and resurfacing, were all prearranged by the DSS”, Uwazuruike said.
