Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has praised some actors in the Nollywood industry for their exceptional patriotism in the struggle for the actualisation of the Republic of Biafra.
Kanu, in a statement by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, singled out Flavour Nabania, Yul Edochie, Fredrick Leonard and others who he said had acknowledged his efforts and risks towards liberating his people from the shackles of bondage by Britain and her partners.
