The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, says the administration of President Muhamadu Buhari is still fighting a war against the Igbo people as if the Nigerian Civil War has not ended.
Evergreen News reports that Kanu made this statement during the live broadcast on Radio Biafra on Wednesday, January 15, to mark the “Biafra War 50th Anniversary.”
This online news platform understands that the IPOB leader said in the eyes of President Buhari and those in the seat of power in Aso Rock, the Nigerian-Biafra war has not ended, as “they are still fighting it with their dehumanizing treatment against the Igbo.”
Kanu lamented that: “The level of conspiracy, hatred, and destruction unleashed on the things cherished by Biafrans by the current administration are unspeakable, unacceptable and condemnable by any peace-loving section of the country.”
The IPOB leader, however, stressed that even in the face of the maltreatment of Igbo, “without apologies to anybody or group, we are the best of the best and finest of the finest you can find anywhere in the world. I say this without apologies to anyone or group.
His words: “The war against the Igbo has not ended. The current administration in Nigeria is still fighting the war against the Igbo as if the Civil War has not ended.
“If the war of genocide against Biafrans has ended, why are Igweocha, Warri and Calabar seaports not opened? Why is the Onitsha River port not functional? If the war has ended, why is there no international airport in the whole of Biafraland?
“If the war has ended, why does the Federal Government still station roadblocks across Biafraland and why are they still militarising Biafraland?
“Why is the government supporting the herdsmen to rape our old mothers and daughters across Biafraland?”
Meanwhile, Nnamdi Kanu is leading a group (IPOB) seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Federal Government of Nigeria led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
