A large number of pro-Biafra supporters converged in Igweocha in Port Harcourt to receive the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu on Friday, July 21.
Addressing the crowd which was reported to be over 3 million, Nnamdi Kanu said there is nothing like one Nigeria, insisting that Biafra is the reward of the people. The IPOB leader described Biafra as the destiny of the people. He urged his supporters to demand for Biafra now for the benefit of their children and their grand children who have been marginalized by those in Abuja.
The IPOB leader had told a crowd of Biafra activists that he would resist the plan to Islamise any part of Igbo land, adding that such an “evil agenda” will not succeed in his life time. Kanu reiterated his opposition to the November 18 Anambra governorship poll, insisting that no election will be allowed in Biafra land beginning with the Anambra election. He urged the crowd to remain indoors and be non-violent on the day of the coming election.
