The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that he was attacked on his way to preach about the restoration of Biafra in Ogoni, Rivers State.
The IPOB leader disclosed that the Nigeria army was behind the attack, he promised that he will soon release video of the incident.
Nnamdi Kanu who spoke in a broadcast monitored by Daily Time TV, on Sunday, said that the same mistake Hausa people made in the 17th century is the same mistake the South is making now.
“Divide and rule, the Fulani conquered the Hausa, and are using Hausa to conquer other people,” he said.
Nnamdi Kanu also said that Nnamdi Azikiwe, a Nigerian statesman who was Governor General of Nigeria from 1960 to 1963 and the first President of Nigeria from 1963 to 1966, sabotaged Eastern part of Nigeria during the war.
According to Nnamdi Kanu, Azikiwe took money from Shell BP and said that Chief Odumegwu Ojukwu, the military leader and politician, who was head of the secessionist state of Biafra during the Nigerian civil war, “is a rebel”.
The IPOB leader said:
“It was Nnamdi Azikiwe that brought sabotaging in the Eastern part of Nigeria.
“Our suffering today is because of him.
“He took money from Shell and called Ojukwu a rebel.
“Listen to his speech and how he portrayed our people that were slaughtered during the war.
“This man is another founder of Nigeria.”
