Following the recent happenings in the South Eastern part of Nigeria, also attacks and denials by some south south leaders, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra have just in included the South south as part of Biafra.
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has given answers to the statement made by the Northern Elders Forum(NEF) that, the Nigerian government should allow the South- east to secede in order to avoid another civil war.
Nnamdi Kanu, stated on Tuesday describing the statement from the NEF as sensible but added that Biafra also includes the South- South.
” Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has said in other to prevent another civil war, the Southeast should be allowed to secede if the movement is popular among the people in the region”
” Now, that’ s very sensible but there’ s a correction: #Biafra includes what you call SouthSouth” , he tweeted.
We had earlier reported that the Northern elders forum called on President Muhammadu Buhari to allow the Igbos have their own country adding that it was necessary to avoid another civil war. The group also called on Igbo leaders to avoid a civil war and dialogue with Kanu and other pro- secessionists.
Western Nations, he said have been urged by the Buhari administration to treat IPOB and Kanu as terrorists as is done other terrorist groups but they ignored.
To assert Government’ s position, he said Kanu continues to broadcast online from his base in some western cities and issue orders to his members in Nigeria to kill and destabilize the country.
