“There Will Be No Elections In The Southeast If We Don’t Get A Referendum On Biafra’s Independence” – Nnamdi Kanu declares


Independent People of Biafra, IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in a new interview with Deutche Welle Africa, says there would be no election in the South East unless the federal government conducts a referendum on Biafra.


Kanu during the week told members of his group that there would be no election in the South East, starting with Anambra state, unless the Federal government agrees to its call for a referendum on Biafra.

Speaking in the interview, Kanu is quoted as saying:


“There will be no election in Biafra land. No more elections. They can put whoever they like in office, they can do whatever they like with their political positions but we will not engage in any political process”.Making reference to the various attacks by herdsmen, Kanu said although the Biafran agitation is a peaceful one, they would require arms and ammunition for self defense.“I am sure you have heard about the Fulani herdsmen killing people all over the place. So how do you intend to defend yourself against the Fulani people who have guns and bullets. They have been killing our people, raping our women, destroying crops in the farms. No one has done anything about it. Is that how human beings are supposed to live? Self defense is recognized even by the laws in the UN. We have the right. If someone were to barge into this interview and is wielding a machete or an AK 47, are you suggesting we should let them get away with it”.
