Face the Nigerian Military or forget Biafra – International Law Professor to Nnamdi Kanu

by on July 8, 2017

A Professor of International law and jurisprudence, Akin Oyebode, has warned Igbo leaders to call Nnamdi Kanu to order over his agitation for Biafra.

He argued that independence must be fought for and won, dared Nnamdi Kanu to confront the Nigerian military first, “then there’s question of recognition”, further warning that Nnamdi Kanu was provoking the federal government and taking his luck too far.

“Nnamdi Kanu is an opportunist. People have said who put you to power? Who are you to speak for Ndigbo? I read something online where Anambra people said ‘count us out of your Biafra whatever, boycott of November 2017 Anambra governorship election’.

“What’s referendum, that Igbo should not vote? We are going to vote. You got away with sit at home protest but this time we are part of Nigeria or you want us to lose out or for soldiers to take over our state?.

“Why I said Nnamdi Kanu is being opportunistic is that the concept of self determination is a valid concept in colonial situations when you have the metropolitan power and the people subjugated by the colonial power.

“Self determination is to poll inhabitants of the colonized territory whether they want independence or they don’t. After independence, it is no longer a matter of self determination. It becomes one of right to development. Nigerians exercised their right of self determination on the 1st of October, 1960.

“So that has been met and in fact a distinguished professor of international law, my late friend Prof Orji Umezuruike, defended a PhD in Oxford on self determination. People should read. So after independence, the only way you bring change about is not by way of referendum.

“You have to change the facts on the ground militarily. You defeat the federal government militarily. So you have a new state like that of Bangladesh in 1971, like that of Eritrea in 1979, like that of South Sudan four years ago.

“So militarily, you have to confront the federal government and defeat them and then declare your independence. Then there’s question of recognition. So that’s the only way you change the boundaries in Africa.”

    Professor Akin oyebode,the truth been professed by Nnamdi kanu has crushed every single foundation on which the zoo is built on. Because the zoo is built on lies. Your Hausa fulanis muslims and yorubas dominated zoological army of Nigeria can not fight against the truth!
    You are making a bush man noise.
    As a so called professor, u should have given sound reasons why the zoo nigga-area aka nigeria should continue and not making otapia-pia noise!
    Your professorship is highly questionable!
