The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu on Tuesday warned that anyone who insists that Biafra will not be achieved will die. Scroll down to watch the video.
Kanu issued the warning while addressing a crowd of IPOB members at the palace of His Royal Majesty, Eze I.O Kanu in Isiama Afara Ukwu, Umuahia, Abia State.
Kanu was reacting to a statement credited to the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo saying that the Biafran agitation is illegal and will attract imprisonment.
The IPOB leader reiterated his resolve towards the struggle for the actualisation of Biafra Republic.
Nnamdi Kanu also declared that there will be no more election in the South-East region starting with Anambra State until a date for referendum was announced by the Nigerian government.
The crowd had gathered at the Palace, following a call he put out to IPOB members.
Addressing the crowd, Kanu said,
“Yesterday, I asked Darlington to send a message to say that I want to see IPOBs here today, not too many of you I said but look at what came out.”
Kanu, in a loud voice asked the crowd, “Are we ready for freedom?”
Responding, the crowd chanted, “Yes!”
Speaking further, Kanu said,
“Because we are not going back, until the zoo agrees on a date for referendum, there will be no election here anymore.
“We are starting with Anambra, that they may know that this land belongs to our ancestors.
“This land must be set free, here we shall die, and here we shall be buried.
“Anybody that says Biafra will not come, that person will not be alive!”
At that point, the crowd in a resounding shout said, “Iseee!!” meaning amen to his prayers. Watch video below
