Biafra: We're Destroying What Ojukwu, Others Fought For - Nnamdi Kanu Weeps

The leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has described tanker explosions recorded in Onitsha, the commercial nerve of Anambra State, Southeast Nigeria, has a “coordinated terror attack by the Muslim terrorist Alimajiris from Northern Nigeria.”

Naija News had reported earlier that a tanker exploded in Onitsha on Wednesday, October 16. The inferno started when the tanker spilled its product and subsequently ignited the fire outbreak.

This online news platform understands that the explosion in its wake left a woman and her child burnt to death.

Reacting to the fire accident at the Ochanja market, the second biggest market in Onitsha, Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State directed owners of properties affected by the tragic accident, including shop owners, to report at the Conference Room of the Secretary to the State Government on Monday, October 21, 2019,  to see how the Anambra State Government can assist them.

Unfortunately, two days after the explosion at Ochanja market, another tragedy occurred after a tanker laden with fuel, fell at Omaba Phase 2, Onitsha.

Reacting to the two explosions in a tweet on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Kanu described the explosions as a terrorist attack which he said was carried out “against the Judeo-Christian people of Biafra, to cripple the economic and human resource base of Biafra.”

The IPOB leader tweeted: “Another day, another fuel tanker explosion in Biafraland. What we are seeing in Omaba is a coordinated terror attack by the Muslim terrorist Alimajiris from Northern Nigeria against the Judeo-Christian people of Biafra, to cripple the economic & human resource base of Biafra.”
