The director of pirate radio station, Nnamdi Kanu has been in detention after being arrested by Nigeria’s Secret Police last week.
A pro-APC group, ENDS.ng uploaded a video of Nnamdi Kanu speaking at the 2015 World Igbo Congress in the United States. In the YouTube video, Kanu is seen requesting for weapons, guns, and bullets from his US based Igbo audience.
He alleged in the video that Boko Haram is “everywhere in the zoo army, zoo police, zoo navy” and would soon over-run Igbo land so therefore, Igbos need to arm themselves to defend against an assault from Boko Haram. He also declared that he doesn’t live in London anymore, “I now live in Biafra land” and the “oil and gas comes from our land”.
“If you stand before me and say you are a Nigerian, I have no respect for you, because you are not sensible,” Kanu declares in the video as he continues to promote the notion that Igbos should identify as Biafrans and not Nigerians.
The 15-minute video which was published on October 26, 2015, is unsettling to watch.
