Unic Press UK: A few days’ after a video emerged, in which, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Nigerian separatist leader Nnamdi Kanu appeared praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, the State of Israel, he has addressed his followers.
Speaking yesterday Sunday, Kanu, who is also the Director of Radio Biafra and Biafra TV, said he is currently in Israel.
“Biafra will come. I am in Israel. . . I hope that one day the efficiency of MOSSAD would be replicated within Biafran intelligence, that all our enemies would be hunted down one after the other. We thank particularly the people and the government of the United States of America, President Donald Trump in particular, Germany, United Kingdom, most especially the parliamentarians. . . the indefatigable State of Israel and other nations who stood by us in our most dear hour of need. I will return to my land of Biafra. I am not a Nigerian. I renounced everything to do with Nigeria. . . I am a Biafran and I hold British citizenship. IPOB will liberate Biafra and we will not take part in any elections until we get a referendum, it is not negotiable, we will do it by any means. There must be a referendum to determine the quest of self-determination for Biafran that is our red line.”
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are seeking a referendum on Biafra independence from the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
IPOB, which was proscribed by the Nigerian government on September 2017, claims to be the original inhabitants and the owners of the lands and communities of Biafra and Biafraland as presently located in the South East region of Nigeria and in some parts of the South South region and some parts of the Middle Belt province.
The group is led by Nnamdi Kanu, who holds dual citizenship being a Nigerian cum British national. Kanu is the director of Radio Biafra. He is facing a series of court cases in Nigeria; but currently on bail.
Until October 19, 2018 when a video emerged of him praying in Jerusalem, no one was categorical about his whereabouts after the Nigerian military invaded his home on 14th September 2017.
