“This was wrong and I sincerely apologize. Children should always be off limits.

“It was my intention to bring global awareness to the threats and imminent danger the Government has placed on my family and community in hopes that shining a global spotlight on the actions of the Government will prevent them from inciting violence against my people.

    Do you mean that Nnamdi Kanu has now woken up from his slumber of foolishness and arrogance of emptiness???

    Before the Yorubas and now the North ever had a chance to even speak of independence, Nnamdi Kanu had the first golden opportunity to do so.

    However, instead of using that opportunity to rally every ethnic diversity in the entire East and South-South, he rather went on a rampage of insult to all none Igbos in the area, including the former president Jonathan who was the only one in Nigeria the Western governments were truly listening to about the matter of independence of entire eastern Nigeria.

    Nnamdi Kanu called the former president “low intelligent”, and claimed that his wife was more intelligent than him because she is Igbo and the husband is not. He also blasphemed the name of Jesus church Christ and insult Christian in Nigeria. Those Igbos who attend any Church in Nigeria, whose pastor is not Igbo, he called them fools.

    His blind and misled supporters went further to called those in people in both Cross Rivers and Akwa Ibom States house boys and house girls. If anyone is in doubt of what I say, just listen to the so-called radio Biafra for one her and see if you will not vomit.

    For your information, there will be no Biafra with any none Igbo speaking tribe in Nigeria. That is: if there will ever be a country called Biafra. Most importantly, if we must avoid a bloodbath as it happened in Southern Sudan after independence from Sudan.

IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has declared readiness to battle Herdsmen while calling on residents of South East to be prepared to defend themselves and land against further slaughter.

It decried the alleged involvement of bandits in what it described as “endless cycle of slaughter and mayhem especially in Biafraland,” particularly with recent killings in Delta State.

Speaking yesterday, IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful noted that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s brave condemnation of Nigerian Army’s involvement in the orgy of violence unleashed by five different terror groups against innocent populations was an indication that the killings were “premeditated slaughter of the defenseless.”

According to him: “IPOB’s message of freedom is the only way out of the present impasse in the fight against state sponsored Fulani terrorism in Nigeria.”

He recalled: “In 2014, before the murderous tendencies of Miyetti Allah was unleashed on hapless Nigerians, way before Fulani herdsmen, bandits, foreign fighters, ISWAP, Ansaru, Al-Qaeda in the Mahgreb descended on innocent citizens, our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said it live on air during his prophetic message of 6th February, 2014 on Radio Biafra that: “Fulani herdsmen will be armed and encouraged to slaughter us with impunity and their masters will protect them.”
