Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has listed the states that are to join Biafra should the referendum for the emancipation of Biafra receive the approval of the Federal Government.
Kanu named the states while speaking in an interview with Channels television.
On the states, he said: “Rivers state, Bayelsa, Delta, Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi, Cross Rivers and Akwa Ibom. Basically South East and South South without Edo state. This also includes Igede Idoma”
When asked about using war to achieve Biafra, Kanu said, “No because truth is a far more potent and deadlier weapon than bullets. No war. When I say Biafra or death, I mean I will keep pushing, either I am Alive or I die in the process. I wouldn’t stop.
“Had sovereign National conference been convened by the powers that be, where every ethnic Nationality comes together to say what type of country do we want? Sit down, discuss and agree. I can begin to perhaps submit to the opposition.
“It is way too late. They have killed so many people. They have ruined too many lives. They have wasted too many souls. How do we bring those people back.”
Kanu further reacted to the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike’s claim that Rivers would not be part of Biafra, saying “He cannot say that. It is for the people to decide”.
