Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, has
reportedly told his followers to kill former President Olusegun Obasanjo if anything
happens to him. According to Sahara Reporters, the IPOB leader’s threat
comes a day after the former President advised Nigerians to work towards
ensuring that Kanu does not succeed in his struggle for the creation of
Obasanjo reportedly said this when he spoke during the launch of the
biography of the late Brigadier Zakariya Maimalari at the International
Conference Center in Abuja. He aslo advised that should the secession campaign by Kanu succeed, Nigeria might just have a repeat of the 1966 coup.
Reacting to Obasanjo’s state, Kanu who was speaking to some elders at his residence in Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia State, said
“I remember Obasanjo calling us names. They said we must eliminate Kanu
and for those words coming out from his mouth, he is going to die. I
told Obasanjo that I have given instructions to IPOB should anything
happen to me. Everything that comes from Obasanjo’s lineage will die the
same day at the same time. It is a standing instruction to IPOB.
Wherever they are, we will kill them ourselves at the same time, the
same day, 12 noon, wherever we find them all over the world. I am not
like anything they have seen before” Kanu boasted.
