Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that he will be visiting Kaduna and Lagos state as part of his tour of various states in the country.
He said this while addressing IPOB members gathered at his father’s compound in Isiama Afara Ukwu, Umuahia, Abia state on Sunday. He proceeded to accuse certain media houses of printing lies about the group and also warned his followers to boycott the upcoming Anambra election and all other elections in the South-Eastern states.
Kanu said: “Some media houses in Lagos don’t understand how powerful IPOB is. They sit down and write rubbish. So, I will go to Lagos to rattle them. I understand some people are worried.
“Don’t Yoruba Pastors come here? Don’t they come here to pray? Some of you worship at Yoruba churches and contribute your money there. Is that not so? That is why they don’t want you to be free. We want you to be free; because if you are free, you won’t contribute money for them. If you are free, how can they send their children abroad?”
He went on to say that he does things that people think are impossible to do, and that he would ensure that Ohanaeze Ndigbo ceases to exist come 19th of November 2017.
“Come the 19th of November, Ohanaeze Ndigbo will cease to exist. They drove themselves away. I am not in competition with anybody. My father is a traditional title holder. So, I am not going to disrespect anybody. I formed, by myself, the Council of Elders of the People of Biafra.
“The thing that are impossible to do, that is what I want to do. That is who I am. The thing that will happen in 20 years to come, let it happen now. We don’t fear our enemies. That is why I will go to Lagos to preach this gospel. I will do it. My friend, Comrade John Danfulani came to see me here and he invited me to Kaduna. I will also go to Kaduna”.
