"I Was Born To Restore Biafra" - Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) insisted that he was born to restore Biafra and could not afford to fail God together with his people who are yearning for emancipation. 

Reports have it that Kanu noted in Umuahia, Abia state that there were no signs that injustices against people of the south east could ever be addressed through restructuring. The IPOB leader told his followers to disregard reports that he dropped his demand for the actualization of Biafra. 

He said the restoration of Biafra is not negotiable, saying that there is no amount of blackmail or intimidation will make him give up the struggle. 

According to him, those who believe Nigeria could ever be restructured were deceiving themselves. 

The IPOB leader said: ''The people benefiting from the current lopsidedness will stop at nothing in resisting any move towards restructuring because those who think Nigeria is their estate have made restructuring impossible''. He insisted that the people advocating for restructuring would one day know that they have made a big mistake because there is nothing they can do any more.
