The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has described the anti-Igbo song currently circulating in the northern Nigeria as “evil, satanic and pre-genocidal,” and urged Ndigbo living in that part of the country to immediately relocate to their home land following the release of the song.
Kanu, who spoke in Umuahia during an exclusive interview, warned Ndigbo still living in the North not to ignore the grave implications of the messages conveyed in the song, observing that the song was only a prelude to the October 1 quit notice by Arewa youths and a further confirmation of the alleged plots to unleash another genocide on the Igbo people living in the North.
While urging Ndigbo still residing in the North to quickly relocate home before the expiration of the deadline to avoid being caught up in the web, said “I am aware of anti-Igbo song circulating now in the North.
My reaction has been to warn our people in the North that the pogrom being hatched by our enemies will come. There is an impending doom for our people living in the North.
“So, their best bet is to leave the North and come home so that we can have our Biafra and build an economy capable of assimilating and absorbing all their potentials and creative abilities.
“That they will kill us is not news but the funniest thing is that the Department of State Security (DSS), manned by Fulani people, will not investigate or summon those responsible. What they specialize in doing is going about creating diversion and seeking ways to intimidate the likes of Chukwuma Soludo, Pat Utomi, etc because of Biafra.
“This is not just hate speech but genocidal threat. They are inciting people to murder others which IPOB has never done and will never do. This is the type of people insisting we will be in the same country with them. It is terrible.”
