The self-acclaimed leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, says nobody on the surface of the earth can stop the emergence of Biafra republic.
Concise News recalls that Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari had said in August 2017 that the unity of the country is not negotiable.
“Nigeria’s unity is settled and not negotiable. We shall not allow irresponsible elements to start trouble and when things get bad they run away and saddle others with the responsibility of bringing back order, if necessary with their blood,” Buhari had said.
But speaking on Biafra referendum, Kanu insisted that nobody on the surface of the earth, no matter the position, is capable of interrupting “our relentless march towards our freedom”.
His words: “My name is Nnamdi Kanu, I am the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and I serve these wonderful people by the grace of Almighty Elohim, Chukwu Okike Abiama. Some of you are wondering what is happening, some of you are perhaps confused and rightfully so, but we are here to put the records straight.
“We are here to make you understand that this very journey is irreversible. What we are doing cannot be stopped. There is no human on the face of this very earth that is capable of interrupting our relentless march towards our freedom.
“It does not matter who you are, it does not matter whatsoever position you may have held or in what esteem we may have regarded you in the past. On this very solemn march towards our freedom, if you are not able to stay on the path of this straight and narrow you will be discarded and we will march on.
“Nothing is going to stop us, nothing is going to phase us, nothing can disrupt this very march towards that promised land of Biafra,” the pro-Biafra activist opined.
Meanwhile, Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian Government.
