The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that the Nigerian government led by President Muhammadu Buhari will choose Boko Haram over restructuring and referendum clamoured for by some Nigerians.
Naija News reports that Kanu, who is also the Director of Radio Biafra, is agitating for the Republic of Biafra. His group, the IPOB which is also seeking to break away from Nigeria had since been proscribed by the Nigerian government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Like Kanu, the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) is also fighting the same course along with other pro-Biafra groups in Nigeria.
However, Kanu took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, where he quoted the Nigerian Presidency to have said: “”We will not succumb to threats over restructuring.”
On this note, Kanu said that it now beyond doubt that between Restructuring, Referendum and BokoHaram, the ” horrible Nigerian Government” will choose Boko Haram, this he said was because those at the helm of affiars in Nigeria are ” all ISLAMIC/Fulani.”
The IPOB leader tweeted: “NEWS: “We will not succumb to threats over restructuring” – @NGRPresident
“It’s now beyond doubt that between Restructuring, Referendum & BokoHaram, this horrible Nigerian Government will choose #BokoHaram, just because they’re all ISLAMIC/Fulani. Like it or not, #Biafra is nigh.”

Meanwhile, Kanu’s statament is coming days after Rev Uma Ukpai, the founder and president of Uma Ukpai Evangelistic Association, a nondenominational gospel ministry based in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, south-south Nigeria, stressed that anyone agitating for Biafra only confirms the level of his or her madness, adding however that everybody is mad but the difference only being in the level of madness.
“There will always be crazy people, even when people are seen to be normal. Whoever is agitating for Biafra shows the level of his madness, but everybody is mad, the difference is the level of your madness,” he said.
