The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, on Tuesday, noted that he is for peace, not war in the group’s pursuit of a sovereign State of Biafra.
In a post on his Twitter account, the IPOB leader noted that the actualization of Biafra would happen without violence or bloodshed.
Kanu further stated that the creation of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, is to ensure self-defense and not to cause violence.
He added that his mission of actualizing Biafra would be achieved ‘sooner than later.’
‘Let these be clear: I come in peace, not war. #IPOB is committed to non-violence, but will never be cowardly. #ESN is about self-defense, not offense. My abiding mission is to restore #Biafra peacefully but if you want war, you will surely get it, sooner than later. THANK YOU.’
He also accused President Muhammadu Buhari of supporting what he described as ‘irredentist Fulani elements.‘
‘What is happening in Nigeria today is pure necolonization by irredentist Fulani elements, aided and abetted by @NGRPresident and @HQNigerianArmy. They will succeed if the South and the indigenous people of the North don’t unite to stop them. Separation is the only way to stop them,’ he added.
