Uchechi Kanu, Wife of the recently released leader of the indigenous people of Biafra(IPOB) group, Nnamdi Kanu, has stated that her husband will continue his agitations for the actualization of Biafra.
In a video posted online, Uchechi described Nigeria as a contraption with its foundation laid by the British.
“The British laid the foundation of the contraption called Nigeria, made up of the Biafra people, Oduduwa and Arewa people and these people were all of a different culture, religion and believe towards things of life.
“We are all different in every way and are not actually meant to be together.In fact, all the resources in Nigeria are coming from the Biafra land but then they are using the proceeds to develop the Nothern and Southern part. They, the government, is using all the resources from Biafra land to give others a better life, whereas, the Biafrans are suffering.We don’t have better schools, roads, and not even jobs. They just continuously press us down politically and otherwise and is why they don’t want us to leave.”
She added that holding a referendum would not be a bad idea. She said;
“I will say a referendum is not a bad idea but the people need to understand why we want Biafra and when that is done almost everybody is voting out. That is what Nnamdi Kanu is doing, sensitizing his people, creating awareness.
“People have come to realize that this is really what it should be, if he stops along the way then it means he has been defeated or he doesn’t know what he wanted in the first place.If you ask for a bread because you are hungry and then you are thrown into jail and released still without the bread, you are still hungry, aren’t you? So you still ask for your bread, except you weren’t hungry in the first place.
She finalized by saying; “He would continue, yes he will.”
