Fredrick Nwabufo: Nnamdi Kanu Is Like Ojukwu Who Fled The Country After Causing Many Deaths

On October 19, 2018 60 Comments

I just watched a video of “Nnamdi Kanu in Israel”. And truly, it was him. In the video, he stands before the Wailing Wall, “wailing”; a voice in the background spits platitudes as the “supreme leader” prays. He then terminates his ritual and turns to the camera to affirm his “invincibility”.

Choreographic marvel!

But many young Igbo lives were lost because of Kanu. When he was incarcerated in Nigeria, young, impressionable men and women staked out relentless protests across the south-east for his sake. Some of them died in the struggle.

When Kanu effectuated an insurrection in Abia state after his release from prison, many young men paid with their lives – all for his “ego agitation”. Operation Python Dance was launched in the south-east because of him. No doubt, the operation led to the loss of some innocent lives and property.

But where was Kanu in all of these? He was in a safe place; totally unscathed.

Obviously, there is an umbilicus of cowardice connecting the late Emeka Ojukwu with Kanu.

Ojukwu started a war unprepared. Besides other genuine reasons for his action, ego took the better part of his thinking. More than a million Igbo sons and daughters died in the war; most of them of starvation. But Ojukwu and his family were not hungry. He fled the country with his family afterwards to Ivory Coast, far away from the death and destruction in the land he gambled to “liberate” from Nigeria.

I doubt if Ojukwu suffered any loss in the war.

Kanu has taken the same path. After many deaths resulting from his agitation, he flees to Israel. He is safe. And home and dry.

“Aspiring” revolutionaries or liberators must be sincere to their struggle. They must be ready to go the whole hog. Che Guevara died in the struggle to free Bolivia from anti-progressive forces. He had teamed up with Fidel Castro to oust the corrupt government of Fulgencio Batista before the Bolivian quest. But even after breasting victory in Cuba, he was not sated. He dreamt of liberating all of South-America from capitalist vultures. However, he died in the pursuit of that “glory”.

There is just something revolting about people who lead other people to battle only to flee to safety in the heat of it.

And by the way, why is Kanu revealing himself now, a few months to the general election?

I do not know though. But I am suspicious of that bolt out of the blue.

    Nnamdi KANU can never be like The Great Emeka Odimegwu Ojukwu,who fought war,with his spirit soul,body and finances..
    You can liken Nnamdi KANU with his fellow criminal like uwasuruike.
    These two men are playing games with our passion for Biafra..

    What I expect Nnamdi kanu to be saying is simple:
    Support Peter obi his fellow onyi igbo ,call for total restructuring of the country,end the marginalization of the Igbo nation,call for the heading over of buhari to ICC after may 29th……anything outside this, is support for buhari

    The writer of this Nwabufo, is at best unintelligent. Who is he trying to impress? Is he too daft to understand the workings of Nigeria? Why does he think the incessant killings of Biafrans in the north have been put on hold? It’s the fear of Nnamdi Kanu and his group. Did Ojukwu simply wake up one morning and decided he was going to lead some Biafrans to death for nothing? Does this demented writer know that without fighting that war a lot worse would have been inflicted on Biafrans up till today? Has he ever lost a relative from the killings that used to go on in the terrorist islamist north before Kanu’s emergence? How many people have been killed in the middle belt Nigeria alone this year for just being Nigerians? Who sent those ones to be killed? Freedom comes with a price. A lot of Igbos killed in the north for just being Igbos (which is the blanket name for all Biafrans living in the north), would have wished they died championing the Biafran cause. But they were killed believing in Nigeria. Kanu and Ojukwu have given dignity to Biafrans. What’s life without dignity.

    You can’t be more Biafran than Odimegwu Ojukwu that later thought it wise to fight for the igbo course through a political front.. This was same reason he established APGA.

    Yes,its normal to be an advocate of Biafra..
    Common wisdom demands that you change Tactics…

    ATIKU/PETER OBI May not be d best option.. But at this time around

    It is definitely the best alternative.Meanwhile, i’m not a member of IPOB & will never support election Boycott of any kind/form, i’m OBIdiently ATIKUlated. So Nnamdi Kanu be careful cuz i dont know your plans coming out now.
