Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has replied Niger Delta leader, Chief Edwin Clark, who suggested that he be arrested recently.
Kanu said while he is fighting for total freedom for the Ijaws, some elders and traditional rulers are kicking because of what they get in the form of monetary benefits.
Chief Edwin Clark
Kanu explained why he is fighting for the freedom of the Igbos and the Niger Delta while he reportedly addressed Mujaheed Dokubo-Asari and his people on Tuesday, August 8.
Kanu mocked Clark in a recent video saying: “I don’t play the politics of militancy, I don’t. I also don’t play the politics of amnesty payment, it’s of no use.
“I don’t play the politics of settlement; I play the politics of freedom.
“Edwin Clark never asked me why I am stopping Anambra state election because if he had asked me why, I would tell him that as old as he is, I want to set him free.
“The reason why the so-called elders and the Igwes want the scheduled Anambra election to hold is because of the oil allocation, and because of the monthly payment.
“They don’t care about the masses and their suffering, because if they do, they will go to Osibanjo to negotiate the date for referendum instead of election.
“Edwin Clark is fighting for resource control of 13 percent, may be moved to 15 percent, Nnamdi Kanu is fighting for resource control of Ijaw people (Biafrans) so that they can control their resources 100 percent through our freedom.”
Voice of Ndigbo earlier reported that Nnamdi Kanu disclosed what would happen if he is re-arrested for flouting his bail conditions.
Reports have it that Kanu said his re-arrest would bring about the actualization of the Biafra dream easier.
He reportedly said: “If you arrest me, Biafra will come even quicker than we anticipate. I am not afraid of being arrested. I have been there before and if need be I will also be there again.”
