Kanunta Kanu, the younger brother of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu, claimed on Monday that Nigerians would soon appreciate the banned group.
According to Kanu, the separatist organization ‘rescued’ Nigerians at the hands of people from the foothills of the #FutaJallon.”
“One day #Nigerians will come to appreciate the fact that it was #IPOB that saved them all at the hands of these people from the foothills of the #FutaJallon.”
No apologies #ESN, has come to stay forever, and we owe #Fulanis no explanation.”
#FreeBiafra,” Kanu wrote on his well-known Twitter handle.
The banned IPOB seeks to revive the now-defunct Republic of Biafra, a declaration of independence that sparked a 30-month civil war between 1967 and 1970.
More than a million people, mostly Igbo, were killed in the fighting or from starvation and disease.
