Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has appointed Uche Mefor as his deputy and Chika Edoziem as head of the directorate.
NAIJ.com gathered that Kanu, who made the statement through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, said Mefor and Edoziem would be his spokesmen henceforth.
He said the duo would be communicating to all Biafra agitators through the Radio Biafra, The Sun reports.
He noted that Radio Biafra broadcasting from London was duly registered under United Kingdom regulatory laws, fully licensed and censored under relevant regulatory frame work where Kanu remains the founder.

He said: “It is in the face of the ongoing misconception and rumour making the rounds regarding the status of a new renegade channel floated in America that it has become necessary to issue this statement.
‘‘At the same time, all the members of IPOB and general public are hereby informed that the position of coordinators of all coordinators has been abolished following the reorganisation carried out by the leadership of IPOB and anybody parading himself as a coordinator should be treated as a criminal."
He, however, urged members of IPOB and Biafrans to observe the sit-at-home order to honour the fallen heroes who were killed during civil war between 1967 and 1970.
IPOB has confirmed that the 50th Biafra anniversary celebration will be held in over 120 countries and territories around the world.
The media and publicity secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, in a statement in Awka, said Kanu had directed that the event be given the serious attention it deserves.
He said the event will also be used to prove to the world that Biafrans were ready for the upcoming referendum for its sovereignty.
Meanwhile, Kanu, has dissociated himself and members of his association from a certain Radio Biafra based in the United States.
Kanu also said a re-organisation has been effected in the leadership of the group, resulting in, among others, the abolition of the title of Coordinator of all Coordinators (COC).
Kanu said the official voice of IPOB remains the Radio Biafra based in London, registered under the relevant laws in the United Kingdom (UK).
