 Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Spits Fire from Kuje Prisons

Kanu Biafra 2

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)
Nnamdi Kanu in the interview granted to Ejike Ofoegbu
from Family writers speaks about the Biafra issue.
Speaking on why he decided to restore Biafra Kanu
said: “First. It was not a choice I made to restore Biafra,
it was a call from the must high Chiukwu Okikiabiama
to lead his people out from the contraption called
Nigeria, which have no meaning, what so ever. And I
have dedicated my life to get Biafra or I die trying to
restore Biafra. The reason why my mother gave birth to
me, is to restore and save Biafrans.”

He added: “ The Biafran race will be cleaned up from the
face of the earth, you will come back home, if you are
living outside the country, you will no longer no the
road to your fathers land.
“How can I encourage my people to work towards the
upbringing of Nigeria, when we don’t hear the same
language, we don’t eat the same food, we don’t have
the same culture, in fact if I come to their land to
practice my culture.. I will be beheaded. Their women
wear hi-jab, and Biafran women don’t, and on the point
that our women don’t wear hi-jab, they will be seen as
infidels, and on that note will be beheaded. We are 100
% Christian. This people are Muslims who see killing as
a culture.. From where I came from, it hard for my
people to kill a human being, because in my language
human being is called Mmadu which means the beauty
of life, now you see it will never work, the only solution
is Biafra.”
Kanu further stated that there is no regret in his
dictionary, adding that he is ready to spend a thousand
years in a prison.
“I said and will continue to say that, is either the flag of
Biafra is raised up, or I am lowered in the grave, ” the
Biafra leader noted.
While being asked what he wants to say to his supporters,
Kanu said: “ProBiafra means supporters of Biafra, we
are Biafrans, so I can’t be a supporter of Biafra. 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 death, even Buhari
knows that…”

Kanu, who is a dual British-Nigerian citizen, was
arrested in Lagos in October by Nigerian intelligence
agents during a visit from London. He leads the IPOB, a
separatist movement calling for the independence of the
southeastern territories that made up Biafra in the late
The Biafra leader denied all six of the charges against
him, which include treasonable felony, a charge that
carries a possible life sentence.
He wrote to the British government asking to press
President Buhari to release him from the custody.
