Igbo groups elect Nnamdi Kanu as new leader

A coalition of pan-Igbo groups, the Eastern Consultative Assembly, on Tuesday, elected the detained Biafra activist, Nnamdi Kanu, as its new ‘leader’.

Kanu, who also heads a pro-Biafra group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, is currently in detention at Kuje Prison, Abuja.

He is being prosecuted by the Federal Government over alleged offences that border on treasonable felony.

Kanu was elected leader of the ECA in absentia at a special session which held in Enugu.

Others elected at the event include Rev. Fr. John Odey, publicity secretary; Evang. Elliot Ugochukwu-Ukon, secretary; and Dede Uzor, assistant publicity secretary.

Foremost Igbo women leader, Mrs Maria Okwor, is the deputy leader of the group.

In a communique issued after the election, ECA insisted on the restructuring of the country.
