The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, says his mission on earth is “to restore Biafra” to its former glory.
The secessionist leader made this known on Thursday, May 16, during what he tagged a “live global address.”
During the broadcast, Kanu who is currently in the United Kingdom (UK), said enemies of Biafra cannot stop Biafra from coming because he and other pro-Biafra activists “are determined and are resolute.”
His words: “I will tell you the truth and nothing but the truth. The enemies can lie. “The devil can lie all it can, Lucifer may seek to deceive but here we are determined and we are resolute. Our mission is very simple, “to restore Biafra” to its former glory.
“To ensure that the Kingdom of heaven is experienced by the children of men on this very earth,” Kanu said during a broadcast monitored by SaharaNews reporters.
Kanu’s statement is coming days to the scheduled “Biafra Remembrance Day.”
SaharaNews had earlier reported that IPOB declared May 30 as sit-at-home day throughout the Southeast referred to as “Biafraland” by pro-Biafra activists and Nigeria in remembrance of its fallen heroes and heroines.
It would also be recalled that 3 years ago a number of deaths were recorded during the “Biafra Remembrance Day” which took place on May 30, 2016, following a clash between security agents and IPOB members. The attack in its wake left at least 150 peaceful pro-Biafra protesters in the south-east of the country dead.
They were killed by the Nigerian security forces, led by the military in Onitsha, Anambra State.
During that attack, several pro-Biafra activists and supporters sustained injuries, and scores arrested in less than 48 hours to the event to mark Biafra Remembrance Day.
Meanwhile, Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
