The coordinator of the centrum initiative for development and fundamental rights advocacy, John Danfulani, has said the people of Southern Kaduna would not hesitate to join Biafra Republic if Nigeria breaks up.
The Punch reports that Danfulani made the statement on Monday, July 24, in Umuahia, Abia state, when he paid a solidarity visit to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
The rights advocate who complained about the fate of minority ethnic nationalities in Southern Kaduna, said the people of Southern Kaduna share a lot of values in common with Biafrans.
He condemned what he called government’s indifference to their ordeals following incessant unprovoked attacks by herdsmen.
He said: “If Nigeria breaks up, we won’t go with the North. Certainly, we will go with Biafra because we share a lot in common.
“We can form a confederation based on agreement. It is better for us because we are safer in Biafra.
“In the North, they don’t like us because we don’t pray like them. So, it is better we follow those who share the same faith and values with us.”
Meanwhile, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has said that the only way the November governorship election in Anambra state would hold is if Nigeria would be restructured between now and October 1, 2017.
According to Daily Post, Kanu stated this on Monday, July 24, at an event where he received awards from three Igbo groups.
Voice of Ndigbo gathered that when asked about the reaction generated so far by his call for election boycott, he said the world would be shocked with the fate that would befall the election unless the federal government restructures the country before October 2017.
