Idiots seeking my arrest will meet their death in ‘Biafra land’- Kanu



Idiots seeking my arrest will meet their death in ‘Biafra land’- Kanu

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday said anyone who attempted to arrest him would die.

He made this threat in reaction to the federal government’s reported submission to the Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court in Abuja to void his bail on grounds of violation of the set conditions.

Kanu speaking at Boys Technical College (BTC) in Aba, the Abia State capital, while paying tribute to those reportedly killed at National High School by security agencies, brushed off the FG’s effort.

He stated that the quest for Biafra was unstoppable, adding that the call was a “message from heaven.”

Kanu also insisted that the Anambra gubernatorial election will be boycotted except a referendum which the group had been clamouring for, was conducted.

“Where we are, is Biafra Land. Aba is the spiritual capital of Biafra land. We started in Aba in 2015 at CKC (Christ the King Catholic Cathedral),” Kanu said.

“That day, heaven authenticated our move that IPOB will restore Biafra and that’s what we’ve come to do. We died in Aba; at National High School.

“They shot and killed us in other places in Biafra land when they were protesting for my release. As our people rest in the grave, we’ll never rest until Biafra is restored. I don’t care what they say in Abuja. I don’t give a damn what they say in Lagos.

“I’m a Biafran and we are going to crumble the zoo. Some idiots who are not educated said that they’ll arrest me, and I ask them to come. I’m in Biafra land. If any of them leaves Biafra land alive know that this is not IPOB. Tell them that’s what I said.

He stated that, “Tell Buhari that I’m in Aba and any person who comes to arrest Nnamdi Kanu in Biafra land will die here. I’ll never go on exile I assure you.

“Some people talk about restructuring, are we doing restructuring of Nigeria now? Are we doing fiscal federalism? Are we doing devolution? What we want is Biafra!

“Forget all the nonsense they write about us. We are not slowing down and no man born of a woman can stop us.

“They thought we are joking and God gave us a simple message that no one can stop us. The movement to restore Biafra is unstoppable.

“The message of heaven is what I bring to you. Don’t be afraid. The plans of our enemies are not going to be actualized. The enemies are planning, but we are formidable.

“We are going to boycott Anambra state election. After Anambra 2017, in 2019, there’ll be no elections in Biafra land. Signed and sealed. My message is that there’ll not be election in Biafra land ever again until they give us date for referendum.”

    The exuberant bravado of a middle aged rable rouser; no tact, no finesse, no well thought out strategy. If Biafra is eventually actualised, is this the person that will lead them?

    Fools.. Nigeria was not born, Nigeria was the sweat of someone. Gaining freedom was never a crime. I am not proud of Nigeria. It is nothing but a mess, so leaving a mess for something better is a good option for anyone who wants to get better.
