Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in his recent live broadcast says that he has returned fully and is coming back with hell.
“I have returned full-time and I am coming home and I will bring hell with me,” Nnamdi Kanu said.
Mr. Kanu, whose whereabouts had been unknown for over 1 year since the Nigerian Army Operation Python Dance at his country home residence in Abia State, was recently spotted praying in Israel.
The video which went viral on social media was confirmed to be true by his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor. Mr. Ejiofor also noted that he had received a direct message from Kanu himself.
Before now, Kanu’s whereabouts had been unknown. His lawyer, his group (IPOB), and his family had repeatedly accused the Nigerian Army for his disappearance. The Nigerian Military had however vehemently denied the allegations, saying that the Biafra secessionist leader was not in its custody.
Kanu in his live broadcast on Sunday noted that his group is not interested in anything else other than a date for a referendum.
“We will not relent till referendum is conducted. We stand for the truth. It’s referendum or nothing else,” he noted.
Kanu further thanked the United States of America and Germany for not accepting that IPOB is a terrorist group as declared by the Nigerian Government and the Nigerian Military.
He also criticized the Nigerian Army for invading his country home in Abia State.
“They are doing all they can to hold us down but we are still here. They fabricate falsehood.
“IPOB is very special. The largest black movement in the world,” he claimed.
He also stated that the Nigerian court lacks the capacity to jail him.
He said that the court which asked his sureties to produce him should have asked why the Nigerian Army invaded his home and killed over 20 persons.
“The Nigerian court is a Kangaroo court. I did not jump bail, I left because the court failed to protect me.
“I shall not be honouring the court. I cannot be tried by a court I do not recognise. The zoo called Nigeria cannot jail me. I will fight till the last day. Till now, Binta Nyanko’s court has yet to hold a hearing about the circumstances that led the Nigerian Army to come to my house to kill 28 people. Only upon a clear pronouncement of the intentions of that very court, which I suggest to them should be free, will this very case move forward.
“Going forward, there must be guarantee from the international community so that this case can proceed and I will prove once and for all that there is something fundamentally wrong with the brains of those that rule Nigeria.”
