- Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), says he weights his word against the rebels of Boko Haram.
- The IPOB leader claimed that the Nigerian government had a way of turning peaceful groups into violent ones, referring to IPOB as a toothless bulldog.
Nnamdi Kanu, the chief of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), says he weights his word against the rebels of Boko Haram.
The reason, according to the IPOB leader, is that Boko Haram began as a peaceful movement in Nigeria until the army and police were dispatched in large numbers to kill them.
On Tuesday, Kanu stated this during his live broadcast.
The IPOB leader went on to say that the Nigerian government had a way of converting peaceful organisations into violent ones, referring to IPOB as a toothless bulldog.
“Until Nigerian police started killing them, Boko Haram was a peaceful movement. That’s why I’m cautious in my condemnation of Boko Haram. They were serene. The Nigerian Police and Army were the ones who kept killing them, to the point where they became violent,” the IPOB leader bemoaned.
Kanu, on the other hand, cautioned that IPOB’s adventure was risky.
“We’re going to fight for our freedom rights. The Fulani caliphate does not rule over us. That can be subscribed to by many people, but not by the IPOB that I lead. Not right now, not tomorrow, and certainly not in the future.
“You know, they call us toothless bulldogs, and they can’t do anything because they’re online. And I agree with you. If these toothless bulldogs can do this when they don’t have teeth, imagine what will happen when they do.
Kanu also condemned the conduct of some political leaders in the South-East and South-South who distanced themselves from the movement for Biafra’s independence. He said that whether they were present or not, the dream of establishing Biafra would be realised.
