IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu Attacks Iheanacho, Ndidi

IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu has attacked the duo of Leicester City Nigerian players Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi for celebrating with the Nigerian flag after Leicester City defeated Chelsea to clinch the FA Cup on Saturday night.

Iheanacho who is currently Africa’s all-time highest goal sorcerer in the FA Cup led the celebrations with the Nigerian flag while his compatriot Wilfred Ndidi also joined in wrapping the flag around themselves in celebration of their club's victory.

The show of affection for the Nigerian flag by the Super Eagles players gathered massive attention on social media.

However, IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu was left disappointed by the two Nigerian brothers who hailed from Southeastern Nigeria.

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) described their actions as shameful and told them to emulate Spanish defender Gerard Pique who always support calls for Independence of Catalonia from Spain
