The leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has advised people calling for his arrest to first go after the likes of Ango Abdullahi, Tanko Yakassai and other Fulanis that have made inciting comments.
He threatened that nobody could restrict his movement to any part of the country adding that he could go anywhere including Lagos if he wished to.
Reacting to a protest on Wednesday by some youths calling for his arrest over breaching his bail conditions, Kanu said;
“But why will I be re-arrested and nobody is going to arrest Tanko Yakassai or Ango Abdulahi because of what they have been saying?
Is it because they are Fulani? They own Nigeria? They are immune to arrest? Is arrest only meant for Biafrans and not for Fulani?
Who will arrest Lawal Daura of DSS for flouting court order to release Bright Chimezie Isinwa of IPOB? The Fulanis say whatever they like and go free and nobody holds them accountable because they own Nigeria.
I go to anywhere I want to go. I don’t listen to threats. They motivate me rather than dampen my spirit. That thing people say I cannot do is what I love to do. When the time comes, I will go to Lagos if I have to go to Lagos.
I completely disagree with them. They are the pioneers of hate speech. Go through the text of speeches made by Ango Abdullahi, Tanko Yakassia or the ones made by one Abubakar. Are those ones not hate speeches? Unfortunately, I blame the deplorable state of education in Nigeria because they don’t know what hate speech is all about.”
