TY Danjuma: Why Fulanis Will Continue To Rule Nigeria - Nnamdi Kanu

-I am not afraid of anybody -Nnamdi Kanu declares.

-My arrest will guarantee 100 percent boycott of Anambra elections.

The leader of the In­digenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has revealed that if he is re-arrested for allegedly flouting his bail conditions, it will only have a positive effect on the cause he is fighting for.

According to the IPOB leader, his re-arrest would only facilitate the quicker actualization of the Biafra dream; stressing that he was not afraid of being rearrested.

Kanu, who spoke to AUTHORITY Newspaper in Umuahia,said: “If you arrest me, Biafra will come even quicker than we anticipate. I am not afraid of being arrested. I have been there before and if need be I will also be there again.

“I will be very happy if they re-arrest me. If we are hoping for 90 percent compliance with the boycott of Anambra State Governor­ship election, my arrest will make the compliance 100 percent.”

He further de­clared that nobody could stop him from visiting Lagos State if he wanted.

Kanu said this in reaction to threats by some individu­als and groups that his safety is not guaranteed in Lagos even as rumours are building up that the IPOB leader is planning to storm the commercial city.

The Biafra activist said his right of freedom of movement could not be limited by anyone or sacrificed on the altar of mere threat, citing that threats only motivates him to do the unthinkable.

“I go to anywhere I want to go. I don’t listen to threats. They motivate me rather than dampen my spirit. That thing people say I cannot do is what I love to do. When the time comes I will go to Lagos if I have to go to Lagos.”

Asked if his much- talk­ed- about visit to Lagos was by any invitation or only meant to prove his audacity, he replied: “I am not under obligation to tell you”, but quickly added that “I have friends with connections in Lagos”.

“Kani Fayode is my friend and he is in Lagos. If I try to visit him in Yoruba land, then I must see him in Lagos,” Kanu said.
