The leader of the In­digenous People of Biafra (IPOP), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday restated his commitment to continue with the agita­tion for a sovereign state of Biafra, stating it is the only way Ndigbo can be liberated from the grue­some socio-political im­perialism confronting them at the moment.
Kanu dropped this hints when he paid a thank-you visit to the Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA) in Enugu, for their solidarity and roles they played in securing his bail.
His words, “I thank all of you that worked very hard, especially the Igbo Youth Movement; I must be specific, and the Eastern Consultative As­sembly and all the mar­ket men, market women, those that closed their shops to see us and all those who made efforts to ensure that I was not con­sumed.”
Speaking on Biafra, Kanu said that the work is not done yet and we need to finish it. “I have chosen the option that we must be free as a people; that we must be liberated as a race and that we must have every freedom, due to us, God-given and I would not want to go to heaven to experience it; I want to experience it here.
“I desire Biafra, I want Biafra, I want nothing else other than Biafra, I will not settle for anything else other than Biafra. That was what I was born to do and that is what I will do until the day Biafra will come that we may live as free men on this very earth as the Most High God, Chukwu Okike Abiama ordained it.
The IPOB leader de­scribed the bail condi­tions granted him as very obnoxious and promised to seek redress in the fu­ture. He also promised to push for the release of other pro-Biafra activists still under detention.
“We are making ef­forts to see that other de­tainees come out because they committed no crime. All we are seeking for is freedom; a return to the values we had before the advent of the Whiteman. A situation where people move their cows into our farms and slaughter our people will no longer be acceptable.”
He was received by some executives of the ECA, including Mrs Maria Okwor, Evang El­liot Ugochukwu-Ukoh, among others.
