Biafra: Nigeria will not survive if anything happens to Nnamdi Kanu – Igbo group

An Igbo group known as Igbo Renaissance Agenda, IRA, on Monday warned
that if anything happens to the leader of the Indigenous People of
Biafra, IPOB, Nigeria “would not survive it, even a minute longer.”

The group issued the warning while reacting to a recent call by Arewa
youths asking the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo to arrest the IPOB
leader for what it termed “threat to national security”.
Reacting to the call, IRA, in a statement by its Coordinator, Jude
Ndukwe and Secretary, Amaka Ekwo, described the call as “hypocritical
and callous.”
The group warned that the era of the North “lording it over Nigerians
and cowing the rest of the country into silence was long over.”
IRA noted that rather than been “obsessed” with Kanu, Arewa group
should “face the cankerworm and work assiduously to tackle the menace of
terrorism, abject poverty, illiteracy, disease, laziness (a vice that
makes them threaten to acquire properties of Igbo by seizure) etc that
ravage their region”.
Clainig that the ultimate target of the Arewa youths was to see to
the failure of the Acting President, IRA said, “They are looking for
ways of pushing Osinbajo into making monumental errors that are capable
of imploding the nation so that they would turn around to say he lacks
the capacity to lead thereby using that alibi to create chaos that could
see him ousted and have any of their kinsmen replace him.‎”
The statement reads, “Following the call last week by the Arewa Youth
Assembly to the Acting President to arrest the leader of the Indigenous
People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, for what they termed “threats to
national security” arising from his movements in parts of his country,
we, the Igbo Renaissance Agenda, IRA, wish to state that such calls are
not only hypocritical and callous but also prove that the real enemies
of Nigeria are the several Arewa groups being used to achieve some
sinister agenda by their elders.
“We are alarmed that while the dreaded Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen
terrorists designated as the most dangerous and fourth most dangerous
terrorist groups in the world respectively are having a field day
killing innocent Nigerians almost on a daily basis especially the latest
one in Maiduguri where oil explorers, university lecturers, staff of
NNPC and our security agents were mowed down in cold blood, some still
missing while some others were kidnapped, the concern of Arewa groups is
an Nnamdi Kanu who is non-violent, never kidnapped anyone, nor
requested for ransom from anybody unlike terrorist groups from Arewa’s
enclave.

“While the Arewa controlled military and other security forces keep
releasing dangerous terrorists into the society in the name of
de-radicalisation, they also empower them by giving them huge sums of
money in exchange for kidnap victims thereby compromising the general
safety and well being of law abiding Nigerians.
“The non-prosecution of a good number of these criminals and their
funding by Arewa-led government agencies in the name of ransom payment
have the unimaginable propensity to embolden the them to carry out the
kind of brazen attacks they did in Maiduguri and other places in recent
days. This should be the concern of any reasonable Arewa group.
“Rather than face the cankerworm and work assiduously to tackle the
menace of terrorism, abject poverty, illiteracy, disease, laziness (a
vice that makes them threaten to acquire properties of Igbo by seizure)
etc that ravage their region, they are so obsessed with the legendary
Nnamdi Kanu who has always conducted himself peacefully everywhere he
goes.
“We know the main objectives of the Arewa youths and their elders. We
know that their other target is Osinbajo. They are looking for ways of
pushing Osinbajo into making monumental errors that are capable of
imploding the nation so that they would turn around to say he lacks the
capacity to lead thereby using that alibi to create chaos that could see
him ousted and have any of their kinsmen replace him.
“This is why they stated in their vexatious release that “This level
of lawlessness has left us with no option than to doubt the ability of
our Acting President to successfully preside over the affairs of our
country”. We know where they are going but we shall stop them in their
tracks.
“They are trying to push Osinbajo into the kind of stark indiscretion
deployed by Buhari in mishandling the agitations all over the country
today. The Acting President surely would not fall for such cheap trap.
“Our message to the Arewa youths and their elderly sponsors is
simple: we dare anyone to touch Nnamdi Kanu and see if the nation would
survive it even a minute longer.
“The days of lording it over Nigerians and cowing the rest of the
country into silence are long over. It is a new dawn and the earlier the
misguided Arewa youths and their elders know this, the better for all
of us!”
