Before a charged audience in Aba, on Sunday, August 27, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, made it known to the Federal Government that any attemppt to arest him will not only fail but lead to the death of those who attempt to cay out such plans.
Kan said anyone who tries to arrest him will die. He spoke at the Boys Technical College (BTC) in Aba, Abia state before a large crowd of supporters. Kanu said he is in Aba which is in Biafra land and that anyone who comes there to arrest him would not come out alive. Below is the frightening message from the IPOB leader to those who may plan to arrest him:
“Where we are, is Biafra Land. Aba is the spiritual capital of Biafra land. We started in Aba in 2015 at CKC (Christ the King Catholic Cathedral). That day, heaven authenticated our move that IPOB will restore Biafra and that’s what we’ve come to do. We died in Aba; at National High School. They shot and killed us in other places in Biafra land when they were protesting for my release. As our people rest in the grave, we’ll never rest until Biafra is restored. I don’t care what they say in Abuja. I don’t give a damn what they say in Lagos. I’m a Biafran and we are going to crumble the zoo. Some idiots who are not educated said that they’ll arrest me, and I ask them to come. I’m in Biafra land. If any of them leaves Biafra land alive know that this is not IPOB. Tell them that’s what I said. Tell Buhari that I’m in Aba and any person who comes to arrest Nnamdi Kanu in Biafra land will die here. I’ll never go on exile I assure you. Some people talk about restructuring, are we doing a restructuring of Nigeria now? Are we doing fiscal federalism? Are we doing devolution? What we want is Biafra! We are not slowing down and no man born of a woman can stop us. They thought we are joking and God gave us a simple message that no one can stop us. The movement to restore Biafra is unstoppable. The message of heaven is what I bring to you. Don’t be afraid. The plans of our enemies are not going to be actualized. The enemies are planning, but we are formidable.
“We are going to boycott Anambra state election. After Anambra 2017, in 2019, there’ll be no elections in Biafra land. Signed and sealed. My message is that there’ll not be election in Biafra land ever again until they give us date for referendum,” Kanu said.
Recall that last week Friday, the Federal government began efforts for the IPOB leader to be re-arrested by filing an application at the Federal High Court Abuja for the revocation of his bail.
