Turkey has denied supporting the secessionist agitations in Nigeria and disowned a Turkish citizen, Abdülkadir Erkahraman, who has expressed support for the Biafran agitation.

Mr. Erkahraman identifies himself as the President of the International Nations Commercial Association in Turkey. He visited Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in his home town in Isiama Afara, Umuahia, Abia State in July.‎

He announced the visit on his Facebook page.

The Turk encouraged “Biafrans” to “rise up and fight a good fight for freedom”.

In response to the development, the Embassy of Turkey in Nigeria issued a release on its website.

The embassy ‎distanced the Turkish government from Mr. Erkahraman’s visit to Mr. Kanu.

In the statement on Saturday, the embassy said, “Erkahraman is not a Turkish diplomat or an official representative of the Turkish government.

“Embassy of the Republic of Turkey wishes to inform the Nigerian public about the following:

“Abdülkadir Erkahraman, a Turkish citizen, has been sharing videos for some time against the Nigerian Government and presents himself as a Turkish diplomat.

“Mr. Abdülkadir Erkahraman is neither a diplomat nor a civil servant or an official representative of the Government of Turkey.

“The Government of Turkey is committed to the territorial integrity and political unity of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Furthermore, Turkey never supports secessionist activities against the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

      Mr. Abdülkadir Erkahraman fooled Cownu and Biafraudsters.

      • Wilfred Bankole Ademokun

        Correct.

  • Sean

    Wasn’t it the responsibility of the Turkish Govt to arrest this man? Erdogan is still busy arresting 5 year old kids who he blamed were part of a 2 year ago coup! Erdogan is destroying Turkey! We don’t practice dictatorship like Turkey, Turkey should stay out of Nigeria as we’ve nothing in common, Turkish are fraudsters and the Nig Foreign Affairs should expel Turkish Ambassador. Turkey has fallen out with majority nations in the world! The Nigerian Police should send an arrest warrant to Interpol to arrest this Turkish moron immediately else more of them will seize the opportunity to supply arms and ammunitions to IPOB as Turkey is supplying arms to ISIS for oil!

      For you and your god sadist Buhari it is all about, arrest, clamp down, maim, kill, murder, close schools and abolish free press. The era of ruling with primitive instincts is over, wake up.

  • Adams

    Are u trying to tell us that Cownu have been dubbed or what?

    Isn’t it amazing that in all the countries of the world, Biafraudsters think Turkey will be the one supporting their madness?

    • Onye Obosi

      Kanu was not duped. It is all part of the fraud.
      The turkish guy is part of the wash-wash. Kanu and his biafraud has been nothing but a sham.
      Now, they have to bring in a man in white skin as a trope, to further brainwash the illiterate Igbos to believe their is a cause, and probably a way out. Kanu’s scheme has been of lies and deceit ab initio. Now, shebi e don go hide. Just one shot, the coward run under the bed. I pity those fools that are taking to the street because of one useless albino cow.

      • Onye you sound like a prof. in your wise thoughts.

  • tundemash

    Another lie shut down! Even Trump’s Presidency first assignment was supposed to be recognition of Biafra according to the confused Kanu followers.

    Everything about this guy (Nandi) and Biafra are nothing but fraud

  • blackdove

    Two fraudulent individuals conspiring against the Nigerian nation. Probably there is a link between these 2 con artist and the seized 1100 pump action rifles recently seized at the port.

  • Abdulrazzak Fadahunsi
