IPOB reveals Kanu's secret that 'will sink Nigeria'

The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has declared that his agitation for the restoration of the State of Biafra is a divine mandate and not his personal decision.

He also said it was a mandate he received from the Most High God from time immemorial, adding that the restoration of the nation of Biafra is a priority and a project that must be achieved under the watchful eyes of the IPOB led by himself.

This was disclosed at a press briefing by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful, who quoting Kanu as telling those who visited him in prison custody.

He added that the Director of Radio Biafra who has been in custody since last year, said he had even dedicated his life to restore Biafra, just as Jesus Christ dedicated His own life for the salvation of mankind.

“The reason my mother gave birth to me was to restore and save Biafrans. I also promise that the Biafran race will be a cleaned up nation and all the people of Biafra will come back home, if they are living outside the country of the new nation. Our people will no longer wander on the road again.

“How can I encourage the people of Biafra to work towards the upbringing of Nigeria, when we don’t hear the same language, don’t eat the same food and don’t have the same culture. In fact, if we come to their land to practice our culture and religion, we will be beheaded. Their women wear hijab, and Biafran women don’t, and on the point that our women don’t wear hijab and we don’t practice the same religion, they will see us as infidels and then, we will be beheaded. We are 100 per cent Christian. These people are Muslims who see killing as a culture.

“In Biafra where we originated from,, it will be hard for our people to kill a human being, because in my language a human being is called MMANDU, which means in English language the beauty of life. Now, you can see it will never work, the only solution is Biafra,” Powerful quoted Kanu as saying.

The IPOB spokesman further quoted Kanu as saying “There is no regret in his dictionary,” adding that “he is ready to spend a thousand years in a prison.”

“And also we are not trying to secede from Nigeria. We are older than Nigeria. You can only talk about seceding if Biafrans are they ones that colonized Nigeria. But we are older than that contraption. So we can’t secede rather we just want to go back the way we were before the British came. It is Biafra or nothing, Nigerians knows that,” Kanu said.
