Naija News reports that the IPOB leader named the three people during his third broadcast of the month on Radio Biafra on Wednesday, October 9.
This online news platform understands that Kanu listed the “ancients Ndigbo” as well as the “pilgrims” among those that make-up Biafra.
During the broadcast monitored by this reporter, Kanu maintained that the Igbo land, which he calls “Biafra land,” has never been homogenous in history, noting that “people already existed in Biafra land before the pilgrims came and the pilgrims came from two sides.”
Kanu revealed that people came all the way from Egypt, Sudan, Niger, and some “parts of Yoruba land into the land of Biafra.”
He also listed Ethiopia, Congo, Cameroon among the countries where migrants came from into Biafra land.
The IPOB leader said: “The people that make-up Biafra are essentially three sets of people, understand this very clearly so you don’t misunderstand it.
“The same way the Israelites left Egypt and went into the land of Canaan and found people there.
“Understand this, there is a lot of confusion, Igbo land as you see it, Biafra land as you see it, has never been homogenous in history, people already existed in Biafra land before the pilgrims came and the pilgrims came from two sides when migration came via Egypt from Sudan, via Niger, via parts of Yoruba land into the land of Biafra.
“The second part came from Ethiopia and kept coming from Ethiopia, from Congo, from northern Cameroon into the land of Biafra. If you go to all these places that I have mentioned, you will find them answering our name, Nduka and the rest of it. Go and do your research yourself.
“Allow me to repeat, everybody that you are seeing in Biafra land today came from three sources, there are those called the ancients Ndigbo, they were on the land already before the pilgrims came from the Holy land of Israel.”
