Is Facebook putting a stop to IPOB? a brand-new platform page
This comes months after the organization claimed that Facebook had taken down its leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s, profile.
In a statement released in January, the Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, claimed that the closure of Mazi Kanu’s Facebook page by Facebook Nigeria was not unrelated to the fact that it had become a rich resource for people determined to expose the alleged “misrule in Nigeria and the evil perpetrators of the regime that allegedly enthroned a better life for the Nigerian mafia.”
After jumping bail and fleeing the nation in 2017, Nnamdi Kanu is now facing an 11-count accusation of treason, treasonable crime, terrorism, and unlawful possession of weapons, among other things. The Nigerian government returned him from Kenya last month and remanded him in the Department of State Services (DSS) custody.
