Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, has broken the silence on the subject of swearing allegiance in joining IPOB.
In his broadcast on August 10, 2019, on Radio Biafra, the IPOB leader said that swearing allegiance is ensuring that one does not sabotage the struggle for Biafra.
According to Nnamdi Kanu, those who are afraid of swearing allegiance to IPOB in the struggle for Biafra are those who have the mission of sabotaging the struggle for Biafra.
He said: “Regarding taking of oath, YOU MUST TAKE IT. If you can take oath to serve the zoo called Nigeria, why won’t you take oath to be in Biafra. Because without sabotage, we are the largest mass movement in the whole world because we are disciplined. Because we are under oath, solemn oath not to betray Biafra. Then what are you afraid of?
“When you are in America, you swear allegiance to America. I am sure before you get German citizenship you swear allegiance to Germany, don’t you? So why won’t you swear allegiance to Biafra? That is what it is.
“You Must because first and foremost if you practice Judaism, Christianity, Ome Na Ala, Odi Na Ala, anything you call it, first and foremost you are a Biafran and your allegiance lie to Biafra not to any religion. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY WE CAN BUILD THAT VERY LAND OF OURS.”
Speaking about religion, the IPOB leader said: “ If you want to worship doll baby, please go ahead and do so. Onye na chi ya. As for me and my household, we will worship Chiukwu Okike Abiama, Elohim. Whatever you like you can worship; that is your business.
“Religion is a personal business between you and your God.”
