News reaching Sofo.ng is claiming that the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had died of Coronavirus in Italy. Controversial journalist, Kemi Olunloyo made this known in a tweet which had caused unrest within the IPOB community.
The social media influencer posted,
#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.
She said in a tweet,
#BREAKING Tomorrow I will tell you if IPOB Terror leader Nnamdi Kanu is DEAD⚰️ in Italy and cremated or being impersonated by a Double Nnamdi of Sudan. I’m the only credible Journalist for this🙄🇳🇬 #Kemitalks
While going further, she said,
We await proof of life videos of Nnamdi Kanu holding a newspaper showing the current date, a comprehensive DNA analysis conducted on his person in a Nigerian hospital proving he has not being cloned. Anything short will not be accepted.
After receiving backlashes from Biafrans for the claim, she posted saying,
Exactly why are Biafrans calling me names like harlot, Ashawo etc because I can’t verify that Nnamdi Kanu is dead. Your Disrespect is unacceptable. IPOB are so daft. Michael Jackson too tweeted when #COVID19 broke out. I will do the honor of announcing Kanu’s death if I knew😠
As much as SOFO cannot verify the authenticity of this news yet, we will keep you in the loop as it develops.
