The self-exiled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) says he will return again in Nigeria and is “coming back with hell.”
“When I came in 2015 I told you i was coming and I came. Now am telling you again I’m coming and will bring hell with me” Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said in a live broadcast on Radio Biafra which was fully monitored by Akelicious on Sunday
The live broadcast comes three days after social media went agog over a photo showing Mr Kanu standing beside a well equipped armored tank.
Kanu on Sunday also called for people to come out and support Biafra “We have men on ground already ,anybody that wants to support us should contact us, we have the men”.
It is not clear if Nnamdi Kanu is drumming for another second Nigeria/Biafra civil war. Nnamdi Kanu in his last three broadcast have consistently said that Biafra is just few months to be actualized. ” I want to assure you that Biafra is just a few months away” Kanu said on Wednesday in his usual broadcast.
Akelicious understands that Nnamdi Kanu breakaway from the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), and formed IPOB in 2009 and had since enjoys limited support from some Igbos.
Mr Kanu who was based in London, UK, was arrested alongside three others on October 14, 2015 in Lagos. Justice Binta Nyako on April 25, 2017, granted him bail on health grounds and adjourned the matter to November. The army and IPOB clashed before the adjourned date.
The judge has since frowned at Mr Kanu’s disappearance and blamed his sureties for Mr Kanu jumping bail.
While the federal government proscribed IPOB and labelled it a terrorist organisation in the wake of the clash, the U.S. government, however, said it does not see IPOB as such.
