I am a Biafran- former Presidential candidate, Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu says

Former Presidential candidate, Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, says he is a Biafran just as the Hausas are known as Arewas and Yorubas are known as Oduduwas. Iwuanyanwu said this over the weekend while reacting to the release of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu last week.

According to Iwuanyanwu, there was no reason for the Federal Government to have detained Kanu in the first place.


 “I have always said that was no reason detaining Nnamdi Kanu. In the law of this country which I know unless you have arms. Nnamdi Kanu didn’t commit any treason. Treason is when you take up arms against the government, he didn’t take up any arms, there was no reason whatsoever for detaining him, because everybody have the right to say I want Biafra, everybody have the right to say I want Biafra. For God’s sake, I’ve made it clear to people that Biafra is for the Igbo. Hausas are Arewas, Yorubas are Oduduwas and we are Biafrans. There is a problem we have because Biafra fought a war and people are ashamed to say they are Biafrans but I am not afraid to say I am a Biafran. Biafra is part of Nigeria, Arewa is part of Nigeria, Oduduwa is part of Nigeria; all of us are there. If a person from Oduduwa takes up arms to secede from Nigeria, its treason but if one is just saying by words of mouth, it just an ordinary expression of public opinion. There is no law that makes such a person get convicted by just saying we want to secede, it’s a right of expression. But if somebody from Oduduwa is amassing arms to topple the government to secede, its treason.
If somebody from Arewa is amassing arms to topple the government, its treason, if somebody from Biafra, because all of us are from Biafra I am from Biafra, to topple government, its treason. But if I come and say I want Biafra, it’s no offence. To the best of my knowledge Kanu didn’t have any violent means. All he said was that he wanted Biafra. He shouldn’t have been detained in the first place, I said it long ago. I said the government is making him a hero but people misquoted me and said I said government should jail him. No, I said that getting an innocent person, putting him in prison, they are making him a hero. So what Nnamdi Kanu is now is a hero because of all these. So he has not committed any offence and shouldn’t have been in detention in the first place. But there are also some parts of Igbo, who since after the war, they don’t want to talk about Biafra. You cannot wish away Biafra, Biafra is there just like you can’t wish away Oduduwa or Arewa.”he said

Ewu or ewuyanwu whatever your name is, did you listen to his radio interview where he was calling on all igbo so to come back home else he will be forced to attack the northerners so that by the time they start killing the igbo so in the north they will be forced to return home? You are only taking sides noel cos he's out, where were you all along? He's trying to famz so that if he succeeds you can get some position. If you have failed in building Nigeria in your own little way there's no doubt you will also failed to build bianca.

This man is a big fool. Go on YouTube and watch for yourself where Nnamdi Kanu was calling for arms to fight Nigeria. Nnamdi Kanu is a terrorist, you idiots need to accept that fact.

They have succeeded in making him a kingmaker, as it stand now, he alone can decide the out come of a governorship election in anambra state that is if the elections will be free and fair by lending a voice to a particular aspirant.

It is nonsense talk, he said we are all Nigerians, has Arewa and Oduduwa people ever pose threats, fought for independent, try to have embassy or passport of their own, so the difference is there.

Biafra is a philosophy which must prosper as long as the ruling group fail to do justice and imbibe equity and good conscience in government. No apologies at all!
