Nnamdi Kanu, Nigerian Biafra political activist and leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday praised Afenifere, a socio-cultural organization for the Yoruba people of Nigeria for 'not allowing the Fulani ethnic group to plant traitors among them', AllNews reports.

Self-exiled Kanu had blamed the Southeast leaders and politicians over the incessant killings of villagers in their homes and farmlands across Southeast Nigeria by herdsmen.

According to the 52-year-old, 'traitors' have been 'planted' among Ohanaeze Ndigbo (an apex Igbo socio-cultural group in Nigeria), thus, their silence on insecurity being reported in the Eastern part of Nigeria.

Controversial Kanu bemoaned 'a criminal silence' of the Eastern leaders, elders, and politicians and wondered why it has become difficult for them to vehemently condemn the abduction and killings by suspected herdsmen.

The IPOB helmsman argued that the people parading themselves as leaders in the Southeast have a modicum understanding of what leadership is all about.

"The only place they (Fulani ethnic group) didn't manage to plant traitors is Afenifere," Kanu said during his routine Facebook Live broadcast.

"I give them credit for that.

"Afenifere never allowed them. That was why they killed Pa (Reuben) Fasoranti's daughter (Olufunke Olakunrin).

"Yoruba never allow Fulani to control their apex political gathering.

"Unlike what you have in Ohaeneze. Afenifere never allowed it."

The plan for Biafra is not new. In 1967 Igbo leaders declared a Biafran state, but after a brutal civil war, which led to the deaths of up to a million people, the secessionist rebellion was defeated.

But the idea of separatism has bubbled away since then and Kanu is the latest in a line of Biafran activists taking up the cause.
