Atiku had challenged Kanu to provide proof of his claims, in a reaction to the statement.

Defending his earlier claim on Monday on his Twitter page, Kanu said that it was the Referendum of 1961 that made Atiku a Nigerian.

“It was the Referendum of 1961 that made Atiku a Nigerian, before that he was a Cameroonian.” he tweeted.

“If in doubt ask HRH Aliyu Mustapha Lamido of Adamawa. This has proved the greatest historical argument yet for the Biafra Referendum.”

IPOB announced that Biafra referendum will hold on February 16th, the same day as Nigeria’s presidential election.

Since Nnamdi Kanu resurfaced in 2018 after the Nigerian government proscribed IPOB, he has been s agitating for the Southeast’s secession from Nigeria to form its own country Biafra.

2. Biafra: Nigerians Blast Nnamdi Kanu Over Sit-At-Home Order

Many Nigerians have torn through the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu over his directive to IPOB members to stay indoors during the 2019 general elections.

The controversial leader of the group proscribed by the Federal Government of Nigeria has been vigorously campaigning for a sit-at-home by the Igbos during the upcoming general elections in Nigeria.

And in one of his tweets on his Twitter handle, Kanu quoted the Venezuelan leader Nicolás Maduro and saying that the boycott of elections is the only way to cripple dictators.

“An election boycott is the smartest way to cripple evil dictators and their sham elections,” he wrote.

“Ask Ian Smith of Zimbabwe, De Klerk of South Africa and now – Maduro of Venezuela.”

According to him, “When you participate in sham elections, you bestow legitimacy on such election. You become complicit.”

Ipob had said it will boycott the 2019 presidential election billed for February 16 and instead use the day for Biafra referendum.

According to Kanu, the only way to stop a dictator is boycotting elections.

However, Kanu’s stance on the election has not gone down well with a lot of Nigerians who are on Twitter expressing their anger over what they perceived as the IPOB leader’s ploy to disrupt the elections.
