Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, will hold another live broadcast later tomorrow, Wednesday, January 15. to mark the “Biafra War 50th Anniversary.”

Naija News reports that the live broadcast will hold on Radio Biafra by 7 pm, Nigerian time, a tweet by the IPOB leader revealed.

In the tweet, the IPOB leader who doubles as the director of Radio Biafra lampooned the British government for allegedly masterminding the killing and starvation of millions of Biafrans to death during the Biafran war.

This online news platform understands that the IPOB leader who is on exile maintained that the British government forced Biafrans to abandon the war, adding that the actions of the British government did not, however, end the Nigerian civil war at the time.

Kanu also revealed in his tweet that he would be holding a live broadcast on Wednesday, January 15 in order to mark the “Biafra War 50th Anniversary.”

Kanu tweeted: “50 years ago Britain masterminded the killing & starvation of millions of Biafrans to death; we were forced to abandon the war. But did the war end?

“Join us as we mark the Biafra War 50th Anniversary. Date: Wed. 15/01/2020. Time: 7: 00 PM Biafraland Time. On Radio Biafra,” the IPOB leader wrote on Twitter on Monday night.

Meanwhile, Nnamdi Kanu is leading a group (IPOB) seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Federal Government of Nigeria led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
