Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has claimed that Nigerian citizens have the power to sack any government.
He compared people to employers who may fire their workers (the government) if they are found to be unfit.
The IPOB chief said it’s time to “payback” in a tweet on his official Twitter page on Thursday.
Recall that the IPOB members have several times been accused of launching an attack on Nigerian security agencies in the South East.
Muhammed Adamu, the state’s former Inspector-General of Police, directed police officers to pursue members of IPOB in connection with the recent assault on the Imo State Police Headquarters and the correctional center in Owerri, the state capital, on Tuesday.
Gunmen had attacked the facilities on Monday, setting over 1,800 inmates free.
In his tweet, Nnamdi Kanu alleged that the government had killed its citizens enough, hence, a need for revenge.
The tweet reads: “No government can defeat her citizens. The citizens are their employers. You can never be stronger than your employer. He/She has the right to sack you.
“#Nigeria Govt with British Neo-Colonialists have killed us enough. Time for citizens to pay them back in their coin. #UGM”.
