The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu might have taken his agitation for a Biafra nation to another level as he is said to have hired an American firm with a whooping sum of US$750,000 (N300,000,000) three hundred million naira in our local currency to lobby the US government to win their support.
According to a reliable source the deal is supposed to last for one-year. Kanu personally signed the deal with the BW Global Group (BWGG LLC), co-owned by Jeffrey Birrel and Alan White, and is registered in Washington D.C, the U.S. capital in February,.
