Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Reveals IPOB's Next Move

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, says he will be embarking on a tour of the United States of America (USA) and Canada.

Naija News reports that the secessionist leader made this known on Thursday, May 16, during what he tagged a “live global address.”

During the broadcast, Kanu who is currently in the United Kingdom (UK), said he would be visiting the countries to preach the gospel of  “Biafra restoration.

“In the next couple of days, I will be in the United States of America and I will also be touring Canada where this same gospel will be preached before a privileged audience of the children of Biafra, that Biafra may come in our time,” Kanu said during a broadcast monitored by this reporter.

This online news platform understands that Kanu’s planned tour is coming days to the scheduled “Biafra Remembrance Day.”

Naija News had reported earlier that IPOB declared May 30 as sit-at-home day throughout the Southeast referred to as “Biafraland” by pro-Biafra activists and Nigeria in remembrance of its fallen heroes and heroines.

This online news platform recalls that 3 years ago a  number of deaths were recorded during the “Biafra Remembrance Day” which took place on May 30, 2016, following a clash between security agents and IPOB members.

The attack in its wake left at least 150 peaceful pro-Biafra protesters in the south-east of the country dead.

They were killed by the Nigerian security forces, led by the military in Onitsha, Anambra State.

During that attack, several pro-Biafra activists and supporters sustained injuries, and scores arrested in less than 48 hours to the event to mark Biafra Remembrance Day.

Meanwhile, Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
