GIVE ME BIAFRA OR KILL ME IS WHERE I STAND – IPOB LEADER NNAMDI KANU
The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has vowed that he would rather die than give up the Biafra agitation.
Nnamdi who made the vow in a poem he composed in his cell room and made available to media on Saturday through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
His words: “I am Nnamdi Kanu the lion that chose death over the abuse of his people. I instead die than renounce Biafra, give me Biafra or kill me is where I stand. I have been arrested for nothing, I am a prisoner of conscience”.
Apparently referring to intimidations by security operatives to coerce him into jettisoning the Biafra project, Kanu vowed never to succumb to their pressures, saying that “renouncing Biafra is a death sentence”.
“They are here to break me, to make me renounce Biafra but they don’t know me, they don’t know Biafra is my religion and they don’t know renouncing Biafra is a death sentence, is like committing suicide.
“In their widest dream shall I commit suicide and I assure them that days of reckoning will come, for God shall avenge the death of His children.
“I have been arrested before but this time is more severe, the harder the price is the closer the Kingdom of God, even Yawehesua prayed that only if this cup will pass over him.”
Kanu said some juicy offers had been made to him to give up the struggle but vowed never to fall for such temptations.
The IPOB leader said he had sworn an oath never to betray Biafra, adding that he is physically and psychologically prepared for the struggles.
