“Nnamdi Kanu” customized coke surfaces in the South East

In what can be described as a brazen attempt draw attention to its cause, Pro-Biafra activists have reportedly introduced Coke cans with the inscription Nnamdi Kanu and Biafrans written on them.

. Kanu, who is the Director of Radio Biafra and head of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), was arrested in Lagos in October 2015, a development which prompted widespread protests within and outside the country with pro-Biafra agitators calling for the independence of the Biafran territories.

The Nigeria Bottling Company (NBC)  has disassociated itself from the purported customised Coca-Cola can,insisting that any coke cans with two names or the one with the name Biafrans could not have been produced by it because the comapmny knows full well the security implication.

An online news portal, Biafran Times, reported that:“Many noted this as unprecedented as some also declared their interest in getting at least a few. Biafrans are exploring every available avenue to promulgate the gospel of the restoration of Biafra.”

Commenting on the development, the Head Legal Services, Public Affairs and Communications Manager, (NBC), Sade Morgan, said the management of the NBC was not aware of such customising of its products in the market or in the South-East.

She said though the company customises names on its can products, which is part of brand promotion in the “share open happiness” promo, such names, however, were duly scrutinised in accordance with the company’s ethical standard.

According to her, the company only uses one person’s name on each can bottle and any can with two names on it does not emanate from the NBC and is, therefore, illegal. The NBC Spokesperson said that the use of ‘Nnamdi Kanu’ and ‘Biafra’ to brand its products was unacceptable as it was not from the NBC.
