Aisha Yesufu describes Nnamdi Kanu as Made-in-China Shekau

Nnamdi Kanu leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) has been described as an inferior terrorist.

Aisha Yesufu, co-covener of the #BringBackOurGirls movement made the description yesterday. Trouble started when Mr Kanu shared a video clip of his Eastern Security Network (ESN) attacking violent herdsmen residing in forests around Isikwuato community in Abia State at the weekend.

Expressing her displeasure, the activist condemned the attack, saying the incident is highly unacceptable. “This is absolutely not acceptable. We cannot have security outfits taking laws into their hands & maiming, killing & destroying properties. This is not acceptable,” She wrote on Twitter.

“We must always remember no one has a monopoly of violence and intolerance and we can all be mad. Let the law guide us!” the BBOG campaigner added.


In a report by Sahara Reporters, the IPOB leader was said to have responded in a statement by Emma Powerful, spokesman of the secessionist group, describing her as a talkative lunatic.

Although the statement emanated from the group, the version shared by Mr Kanu on his Facebook page was different, indicating that the one published by the online news portal was edited to include the name of the activist.

Responding to the said attack on her personality, Ms Yesufu described the seccessionist leader as a Made-in-China Shekau.

“Tell the Made in China Shekau that I am not one of those #VictimMentality people that are swayed by his premature beard and stooped posture that he has taken on that have them kissing his feet with his infantile outbursts and decision making that have had him out in the cold,” the Edo State indigen born and brought up in Kano State tweeted in response to the tweet of Sahara Reporters.


Abubakar Shekau, a top terrorist, leads a faction of Boko Haram, an armed group fighting to Islamize the nation.
