Finally, Nnamdi Kanu Agrees To Drop Biafra Agitation- Gives One Condition
Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has finally agreed to drop the agitation for Biafran sovereignty.
Kanu who made the promise Thursday night in a live interview with a veteran journalist and publisher of the popular Ovation Magazine, Dele Mamodu, however, gave only one condition on which to base the action.
The IPOB Leader simply said that if only President Muhamnadu Buhari whom he claimed and insisted was cloned could fluently address 20 select Nigeria youths in Fulfude native language of the President, he would then, apologize for spreading lies against the President, give up Biafra agitation and surrender himself for prosecution.
He added that he would no longer talk about Biafra if the President could engage some Nigeria youths in live interactive session fielding questions from them and giving satisfactory answers instead of addressing a nation of over 200 million people in 12 minutes pre-recorded address once in a while.
Kanu claimed he was convinced that Nigerians were being deceived about the truth over the whereabouts of their President, a claim the federal government has however, severally dismissed as concocted and untenable.
Despite efforts by the interviewer to convince Kanu that Nigerian’s President was not fake saying he cracked jokes with him during an encounter in 2018, Kanu insisted on the contrary.
“I’m no longer asking for DNA test, I will stake Biafra and my life if the man in Aso Rock is Buhari. Let him simply address Nigerian youths in Fulfude, Buhari’s native language and take questions from them, then I will apologize and give up Biafra if he passes this test”.
Asked where Biafran boundary would begin and end if eventually granted, Kanu said anywhere their Indigenous women tie two pieces of wrappers is Biafra land.
He further identified the states to include all five South Eastern States and their six South South counterparts plus Kogi and Benue States.
He however, added that non-Igbo speaking parts of Benue and Kogi will not be corced to join Biafra, insisting that the people will be given the opportunity through referendum to decide whether or not they want to be part of Biafra.
Kanu further explained that the people of the various ethnicities that would form Biafran would decide their fate through referendum, although he failed to mention when and how the plebiscite would be conducted.
The interview was listened to by thousands of audience via various platforms including the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
