Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has submitted that no one deserves to die in seeking the restructuring of Nigeria.
Kanu in a tweet on Monday, declared that Biafra agitators, Oduduwa republic agitators as well as #EndSARS protesters should be given a platform by the government to present their grievances.
He added that the government can’t and shouldn’t use force to meet the demands of the people but rather pacify them and allow a referendum to take place so as to determine the makeup of the country.
He wrote: “No one deserves to die for seeking #Biafra’s restoration, or even #Oduduwa republic. Not to talk of #EndSARS. None is a crime. The quest for freedom can only be pacified by consent, not State terror. That consent is determined by vote, otherwise known as #referendum.”

Meanwhile, Kanu had earlier called for President Muhammadu Buhari to follow the example of President Manuel Merino and resign as the President of Nigeria.
This online medium reports Merino had resigned as the President of Peru following the death of two protesters who were protesting against the government in Lima, the capital city.
The IPOB leader in his reaction to the development condemned the Nigerian government over its approach to the recent #EndSARS protest across the nation.
He wrote, “Peru President Merino resigns following street protests but in Nigeria, following #EndSARS protests, Nigeria president is either persecuting and freezing bank accounts of Nigerian youths or slaughtering them at #Obigbo and Nigerians are seemingly tolerating it.”
