The Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has warned President Muhammadu Buhari's government to stop harassing former President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Dame Patience Jonathan.
He added that the administration was also pursuing former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke to cover-up its alleged incompetence and corruption.
Kanu the claim in a broadcast on Radio Biafra on Wednesday, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said in a Thursday statement.
He made this known while reacting to the Federal Government’s application to a New York Court to compel 10 foreign banks to release to it account details of Jonathan, his wife and Alison-Madueke.
The IPOB leader said the action was nothing but an attempt to humiliate the former president and his family.
He also described popular blogger, Kemi Olunloyo as practising “gutter journalism” for proclaiming him dead.
According to him, some people have been calling his younger brother in their hometown of Afaraukwu in Umuahia, Abia State to inquire if he was dead as claimed by the social media personality.
The statement read, “They are now pursuing former President Goodluck Jonathan after looting the country and are now shopping for loans from lending agencies. They have not given the account of the N13.9 billion meant for Aso Rock clinic, yet the same people are asking for the account of a former president and his wife to disgrace them and make them scapegoats in their misrule.
“They are also pursuing Mrs. Diezani Madueke because they want to divert attention of Nigerians and the world from their incompetence and looting, but they have not responded to the allegation of looting of N13.9 billion meant for Aso Rock clinic which alarm was raised by the wife of their president against the cabal in the government.
“We in IPOB are warning them and their compromised media who have not seen anything good in other administrations except theirs, to leave former President Jonathan and his wife, Patience, alone.
“You may toy with Jonathan because he allowed you to do that to him, but do not toy with Patience, otherwise we will bring down Nigeria. We are surprised that PANDEF and Ohanaeze Ndigbo have all kept quiet to this renewed attack on Jonathan.
“It is high time Dr Jonathan dropped his gentleman’s toga and defend himself, his wife and family members.”
