The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu on Friday, August 25, 2017 refuted reports that he dropped his demand for the actualisation of Biafra.
Speaking in Umuahia, Abia State capital, the IPOB leader he could not have made such a pronouncement when there were no indications that the injustices against people of the South East could ever be addressed through restructuring.
The IPOB leader, according to Daily Post, appealed to his followers and those sympathetic to the Biafra course to disregard the speculation.
Kanu said the restoration of Biafra is not negotiable, adding that no amount of blackmail or intimidation will make him give up the struggle.
He stated that those who believe Nigeria could ever be restructured were living in self-illusion because “those benefiting from the current lopsidedness will stop at nothing in resisting any move towards restructuring.”
Kanu insisted that it is too late to restructure Nigeria “because those who think Nigeria is their estate have made restructuring impossible.”
The IPOB leader said advocates of restructuring would one day come to terms with realities but regretted that such realisation might be too late.
Kanu said he was born to restore Biafra and could not afford to fail God and his people who are yearning for emancipation.
