The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has said he is fighting for the Igbo because they are marginalised in Nigeria.
In addition, he said a referendum for Biafra will be gotten “either sanctioned by the Nigerian state or not.”
According to the pro-Biafra leader, his group had reached a yet-to-be-revealed agreement with the Nigerian government.
Speaking on his fight for Igbo, Kanu lamented that his people are being discriminated in the West African nation.
“My people are forgotten people, victims of genocide, victims of the worst kind of racism, discrimination, apartheid and abuse,” he told Newsweek.
“We are seeking to return from where we came, to go back to how we used to be before our colonial masters came.
“We will eventually get our referendum, either sanctioned by the Nigerian state or not. But it is bound to happen.”
Concise News understands that Kanu is in London after leaving Israel.
He is leading the fight for an independent Biafran nation for the Southeast and the Igbo in Nigeria.
