Biafra: Why I asked for guns from US-based Nigerians – Nnamdi Kanu

Biafra: Why I asked for guns from US-based Nigerians – Nnamdi Kanu

Embattled Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that the reason he demanded bullets and guns from a group of US-based Nigerians in the past was not to hurt anyone but for self-defense against the incessant attacks on Igbos by the Fulani herdsmen.
According to him, self-defense was recognized by all known laws at the United Nations (UN).
He stated this during an interview with Adrian Kriesch of German TV station – Deustche Welle.
Kanu said: “I am sure you have heard of the Fulani herdsmen killing people all over the place. How do you intend to defend yourself against Fulani herdsmen without guns and bullets?
“They have been killing our people, raping our women, destroying crops in the farms and no one does anything about it. Is that how human beings are supposed to live?
“Self-defense is recognized even by all the known laws at the UN.
“We are fighting for independence, not fighting physically with guns and bullets. We are fighting in terms of our agitations; we are fighting in terms of our belief; we are fighting in terms of our consistency to ensure that we free, because we are not free.
“As a free people, we can afford to make life better for our people. Right now, we cannot do that because of how Nigeria is structured and because of the flawed foundation Nigeria rests.”
