Nnamdi Kanu Has Revealed Why Boko Haram Has Continued To Terrorize Nigeria.
TrueTells Nigeria reports that the leader of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has revealed that he doesn’t condemn the activities of Boko Haram too much because it was the government of Nigeria that made them violent.
This online news platform understands that Kanu submitted that Boko Haram started as a peaceful group before the government unleashed soldiers and police on them, which in turn made them turn to violent terrorists and insurgents, and that is why he is always careful not to attack or blame them.
Making reference to his own IPOB organization, Kanu alleged that the government has a way of making peaceful organizations turn violent.
He however warned that IPOB won’t be forced into submission but will continue to forge ahead with plans to achieve a sovereign state of Biafra.
The IPOB leader made the submissions during his live broadcast on Tuesday.
Blaming the Nigerian government for the violent activities of Boko Haram including their killings, Kanu said: “Boko Haram was a peaceful movement until Nigeria Police started killing them. That’s why I’m measured in my criticism of Boko Haram. They were peaceful. It was Nigeria Police and Army that kept killing them to the point when they now turned violent.”
He, however, added that IPOB would never compromise its stand but would continue to push and fight for what it believes.
Kanu added that even if southeast leaders and politicians don’t support IPOB, the dream of actualizing Biafra will still become a reality.
“We are going to stand up for our rights to be free. We are not subjects of the Fulani caliphate. Many people can subscribe to that, but not this IPOB that I lead. Not now, not tomorrow, not ever.
“You know they call us toothless bulldogs, that they are online, they can’t do anything. And I agree with you. If these toothless bulldogs can be doing this when they have no teeth, imagine when they grow teeth, what will happen?” he declared.
