Following the call of the federal government to revoke the bail given to the Leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, for allegedly violating bail conditions including the directive not to address a crowd, he has reacted by informing anyone who tries to arrest him will die.
Kanu said this while speaking at Boys Techinical College (BTC) in Aba, Abia State on Sunday, August 27.
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu was granted bail On April 25 by the Federal high court in Abuja after spending 18 months in dentention.
While speaking at Boys Technical College (BTC) in Aba, Abia state, Kanu said that the agitation for Biafra is a “message from heaven.”, describing “Aba as the Spirtual Land Of Biafra”, used the opportunity to insist that the Anambra gubernatorial election will be boycotted except a referendum which the group has been clamoring, is conducted.
The IPOB leader who is aware that the federal government has commenced process to have him rearrested said that anyone who tries to arrest him will not leave Biafra land alive, the Cable reports.
According to him:
“Where we are, is Biafra Land. Aba is the spiritual capital of Biafra land. We started in Aba in 2015 at CKC (Christ the King Catholic Cathedral),” Kanu said.
“That day, heaven authenticated our move that IPOB will restore Biafra and that’s what we’ve come to do. We died in Aba; at National High School.
“They shot and killed us in other places in Biafra land when they were protesting for my release. As our people rest in the grave, we’ll never rest until Biafra is restored. I don’t care what they say in Abuja. I don’t give a damn what they say in Lagos.
“I’m a Biafran and we are going to crumble the zoo. Some idiots who are not educated said that they’ll arrest me, and I ask them to come. I’m in Biafra land. If any of them leaves Biafra land alive know that this is not IPOB. Tell them that’s what I said.
“Tell Buhari that I’m in Aba and any person who comes to arrest Nnamdi Kanu in Biafra land will die here. I’ll never go on exile I assure you.
“Some people talk about restructuring, are we doing the restructuring of Nigeria now? Are we doing fiscal federalism? Are we doing devolution? What we want is Biafra!
“Forget all the nonsense they write about us. We are not slowing down and no man born of a woman can stop us.
“They thought we are joking and God gave us a simple message that no one can stop us. The movement to restore Biafra is unstoppable.
“The message of heaven is what I bring to you. Don’t be afraid. The plans of our enemies are not going to be actualized. The enemies are planning, but we are formidable.
“We are going to boycott Anambra state election. After Anambra 2017, in 2019, there’ll be no elections in Biafra land. Signed and sealed. My message is that there’ll not be an election in Biafra land ever again until they give us a date for a referendum.”
