The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has said the alleged plot to Islamise Nigeria was real, vowing to resist such agenda.
Kanu made the statement on Tuesday, July 18, when he addressed a huge crowd of Biafra activists when he visited Nri, the ancestral home of Ndigbo, Vanguard reports. The IPOB leader who was in the company of his wife however, vowed to resist the plan to Islamise any part of Igbo land, adding that such an “evil agenda” will not succeed in his life time. “The Islamisation plot is real but they won’t succeed in my life time. No, never; not when I am alive. “The struggle for Biafra which I proudly lead is not a secessionist aspiration of NdiIgbo only as some erroneously think. Biafra is not just a living agitation but a fight for the survival of Christians in Nigeria against the entrenched threats of radical Islamic fundamentalists and their political collaborators within and outside Nigeria”, Kanu said. The IPOB leader assured Christians in the north that he would not abandon them after actualizing Biafra. Kanu said he would also defend them against any imposition of religious faith against their will.
