Controversial Nigerian journalist Kemi Olunloyo has shared a burial photo to confirm her claims that the IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu is dead.
Kemi Filani recalls that Olunloyo had come under attacks days ago when she posted on her social media page that Kanu might have died.
She had tweeted: “#BREAKING Reports that Nnamdi Kanu has died. This is one strong news I cannot authenticate. Kanu or IPOB will have to debunk this. I hope he’s fine. Good luck to everyone.”
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, however rubbished the claim.
Its National Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, insisted that Kanu was alive and well.
Interestingly, Kemi Olunloyo took to Twitter yesterday to state that the the leader of the proscribed group has truly died and he died in an Italian hospital, a report she claimed she received from a top military source.
Read her tweets below:
#BREAKING UPDATE I was briefed by a top military defense dept source that Nnamdi Kanu did pass away in an Italian hospital as reported. I was also told that whoever is broadcasting is an impostor meant to keep IPOB together. The Italian Hospital source also confirmed it #RIPKanu
Kanu’s wife is in the UK and is reportedly angry at IPOB Spokesmen for “covering her husband’s death up” and not announcing. I asked my defense dept source if they will announce, they said in due course. Meanwhile a double is on air on his program. I have asked for a live video
Nobody knows where the double is broadcasting from. IPOB continues to be a nuisance and reportedly working on who will head the terror group next or if Biafra will be achieved. #RIPNnamdiKanu
Nnamdi Kanu has died and gone. The person on a radio/video show yesterday didn’t have to hide their face. That person was physically in Nigeria doing his voice over. As a broadcaster, I can do voices of many public figures. #RIPNnamdiKanu
