Biafra: Ahead Of Parents’ Burial, Nnamdi Kanu Sets Date To Address 'Biafrans'

Nigerians from the South East part of the country, have berated the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, over his latest tweet instructing ‘Biafrans‘ to stay at home on February 16, a day for Nigeria’s Presidential election.

Naija News recalls that the IPOB had in January issued a statement through its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, saying the group will boycott the forthcoming elections.

Ever since then Kanu has used several platforms including Radio Biafra and micro-blogging site, Twitter, to reecho the stance of his group on the forthcoming elections.

The IPOB leader tweeted a few minutes ago, noting that that “freedom fighting is about philosophical purity and ideological consistency not pandering to political short-termism”.

Kanu furthered that “those that wish to renew their slave status in Nigeria are free to vote”, adding that ‘Biafrans should sit at home in Biafraland (South East) on the day of the election.

The secessionist leader tweeted: “We in #IPOB recognise that freedom fighting is about philosophical purity and ideological consistency not pandering to political short-termism.

“Those that wish to renew their slave status in #Nigeria are free to vote. On February 16, 2019, #SitAtHome in Biafraland,” the tweet added.

Apparently displeased with the tweet, Twitter users presumed to be Igbos, took to the comment section under the post to berate the IPOB leader.
