Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has emphasized the reason why he turned down the alleged offer by the Federal Government to have the Biafra Republic that comprises only five core Igbo speaking states in the southeast region.
The IPOB leader who made the revelation in a live broadcast monitored by Infoxclusive in Abia said his passion is to liberate all the oppressed indigenous tribes in the old Eastern region made him refuse the offer of not carrying everyone along.
Kanu’s word read: “When I was at Kuje prison the federal government offered to give me Biafra provided I leave other tribes outside the five southeast states but I told them I must go with the other oppressed nationalities because I don’t want them to continue suffering subjugation”.
He further objected to the utterances of some persons from Ikwere tribes in Rivers states who he said had wrong claims that the Igbo intended to dominate them in the new republic. Kanu further warned the non-Igbo-speaking tribes in the Niger Delta region and others against the chance of falling victim to not being part of the Biafra Republic, he said it would be worse than the Hausa’s who have since lost their identity and freedom to the Fulani.
He declared that contrary to misconceptions in some quarters the struggle for the Biafra republic was not for the Igbo to subjugate or dominate the minority tribes but to free them from bondage.
Kanu added that the way the Jews were hated for no just cause was the way “Ndigbo are being hated for no justifiable reason”. The IPOB leader claimed that Biafra lost the civil war because of a global conspiracy allegedly championed by the British. “During the war, Britain and Russia put aside their differences and united to support Nigeria against Biafra”.
Kanu claimed that the white people were not supporting Biafra’s struggle for self-determination because of their fear that an independent Biafra would become the technology hub of Africa, and ultimately bring civilization to the black race.
He recalled his encounter with the late Justice P. K Nwokedi, a former aide to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu who told him how Bulgaria declined from supporting Biafra during the civil war “because of their fear of our technological ingenuity.”
“Justice Nwokedi told me in London that when Ojukwu sent him to Bulgaria to seek her support during the war, after narrating the ordeals of our people to the Bulgarian Government officials, they sympathized with him but simply told him that the world cannot afford another Japan in Africa.
” He said that the jealousy and global conspiracy against Biafra were because of her ingenuity which he said was a divine gift.
