Nnamdi Kanu Backs Down, Says I’m Happy With Nigerians

by on June 11, 2021

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has in a sudden twist, expressed happiness with other Nigerians over the way they sided with Igbos during recent gaffes by Muhammadu Buhari, President of Nigeria.

Kanu in a broadcast thanked Nigerians for condemning President Muhammadu Buhari Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice when he compared spare parts dealers to murderous Fulani Herdsmen.

He said: “Igbos are the most widely travelled people you know. We can’t be angry because we also go out everywhere. So, when you see this kind of personalisation of the angst, so what it tells us is something.

“With all due respect, that’s what every Igbo feels including myself. That somehow when there is a big problem in Nigeria, if you need to resolve it, use Igbo head to resolve that problem.”

“Let me tell you one thing that I’m very happy about and that is when the Minister of Justice made the unfortunate statement about the spare parts trader, you could see everyone came out to say I’m a spare parts dealer too. And that gladdens everybody. When Mr President also made the unfortunate statement about genocide, you could see all Nigerians came out to say that I am Igbo.

“That is to say, we have transcended the artificial boundaries they used before to demonise a particular group of people. We are happy that Nigerians are all coming together. Nigerians are all seeing what is here is not Igbo problem, what we have is syndicate going around killing people.”
