Nnamdi Kanu Boils In Anger, Sends Buhari Final Warning Message

As reported by Post-Nigeria, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, against provoking another civil war in Nigeria, by threatening to deal with freedom fighters as ter­rorists.

Kanu was reacting to Buhari’s recent broadcast, and Tuesday’s alleged directive to Security Chiefs, to handle the agi­tations for self-determination the same way as Boko Haram and herdsmen menace.

Kanu advised Buhari to rather concen­trate efforts on governance, and how to take Nigeria out of economic recession, instead of issu­ing threats to intimidate genuine agitators.

His words: “The directive to Service Chiefs to clamp down on IPOB, is a continuation of the Buhari’s dictatorial and undemo­cratic approach to governance. I find it unacceptable, abhorrent, and insulting that somebody elected by the people can turn around to dictate to them. Buhari was elected to govern Nigeria; he should get on with the business of governance, and not try to instigate another war.”

“We have refused to be provoked to arms rebellion. That is what Bu­hari is looking for. Buhari wants a war, but we won’t oblige him, be­cause we are civilised people. We are democrats at heart by nature and by essence.”

He however, said that no amount of threat or intimida­tion would make him give up the struggles for Biafra autonomy because it is a genuine cause.

He challenged Buhari to defeat advo­cates of self-determination with superior arguments on why Nige­ria should continue as one indivis­ible country, instead of thinking he could cow them into submission by force.

“This notion and idea that we can intimidate them or bang them into submission do not work with Nnamdi Kanu. I only respond to reason and logic. I am not scared by threats. Defeat me with superior arguments not with the force of arms, because it won’t work with me. Nigeria never de­feated Biafra. Britain and other devilish powers did. Nigeria can never defeat Biafra.”

Kanu accused Buhari of hypoc­risy by supporting the indepen­dence bid of Palestine and West­ern Sahara on the one hand, while clamping down on Biafran agita­tors on the other. His words:

His words: “How come Buhari is supporting Pales­tinian self-determination, West­ern Sahara self-determination, but wants Biafrans to be killed? That is sheer monumental hypocrisy. I want everybody liberated – Yo­ruba, Igbo, Jukun, Ijaw, Ibibio, etc. Convince me why Nigeria is a bet­ter option using sensible reason­able argument and not threats”.

According to Kanu: “We are not armed, and we can never be armed. IPOB has done a lot to free other ethnic nationalities from the Caliphate’s bondage of retrogres­sion and economic emasculation. Other ethnic nationalities should be grateful to IPOB for giving them the courage and the heart to speak up and say they are not slaves.

“We are not afraid because IPOB is a peaceful mass movement, and not a violent arms group. IPOB is a nonviolent peaceful mass movement. There is no recorded event of an injury being sustained in any of the numerous IPOB gatherings. People converge in their millions to listen to this gospel of the resto­ration of Biafra.

“We are the most disciplined; most well- behaved mass move­ment anywhere on the face of the earth despite the genocidal kill­ings, arbitrary arrests, illegal de­tentions without trial.

Ac­cording to him, BSS was basically inaugurated to gather intelligence about the October 1 quit notice to Igbo living in the North; and to also defend communities in Biafra land against herdsmen invasion.

“No army was set up. Forget the distortions you see in the media. They only do so to attract traffic. What we have is only BSS set up to give us intelligence regarding the October 1 quit notice to Ndigbo living in the North. We are stu­dents of history. The same thing happened in 1966. No adequate arrangements were made to cater for the safe return of our people from the North and as a result, hundreds of thousands of people were massacred.

“All that IPOB is trying to do is to avoid the reoccurrence of the 1966 genocidal massacre of inno­cent Igbo men, women and chil­dren in the North. It is to prevent the menace of Fulani herdsmen which Buhari cleverly avoided to mention during his broadcast be­cause they are his kinsmen. This means that he supports the killings of innocent people by herdsmen as a way of expanding their Islamic domination agenda

“The majority of our people across South South and South East support what IPOB is doing. They also support the formation of BSS that will take care of this land in terms of its security needs. Attacks by the rampaging Hausa/ Fulani herdsmen will be a thing of the past. We can no longer allow it to go on.”

“People talk about BSS as if it is something new. They have the Shariah police in the North, they also have the Hisbah police in the North answerable to Islamic courts. In the West they have OPC but here in the South East we have nothing. Why is it that when I want to safeguard the interest of Biafra, they begin to kick against it?”

Asked how BSS would confront the rampaging herdsmen since the former is not armed, Kanu said: “We don’t need arms to disarm people who are carrying guns; we know the terrains of our villages better than they”.

Continuing he said: “We shall disarm them and stop them from rampaging and invading our com­munities. I don’t want some ethnic bigots occupying the corridors of power to provoke us into arms confrontation, by sending troops masquerading as herdsmen to come and attack Biafra land.”
