The Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL, has reacted to threat by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra that he will return to Nigeria “with hell.”
Kanu, who disappeared in September 2017 when military men invaded his residence in Afaraukwu Abia State, had a few weeks ago resurfaced in Jerusalem where he was seen praying.
In his first public address from Jerusalem, the IPOB leader vowed to return to Nigeria “with hell.”
But BNYL admonished the IPOB leader to be “prepared in all ramifications” for the consequences of his actions.
In a statement signed by its leader, Princewill Chimezie Richard and sent to DAILY POST, the group also insisted it “cannot exchange Biafra for restructuring.”
The group said “those who are saying restructuring would end the struggle for Biafra are only assuming.”
Richard also warned people of the South East “posing as the mouthpiece of the region to desist noting that the struggle for Biafra is beyond restructuring and Vice Presidential slot.”
The statement added that, “They have nothing to campaign about than trying to win votes using the ongoing struggle as an opportunity, we know they will only end up being disgraced.
“We will rubbish those who would come back after 2019 to shout Biafra, we are carefully watching and observing how they are using using Biafra for politics making it look as if it is politically motivated”.
Reacting to Kanu’s recent reemergence and threats to return with hell in Nigeria, BNYL said, “we are happy he was not killed during military raids in South East, we were part of those that risked the lives of our members to Abia State during that unfortunate incidence, and we fully know he was not apprehended by the Military contrary to the believe of many.
“As for his recent interview and threats to return with hell, we will only urge him to be prepared in all ramifications, because his first return was with Radio, and nothing aside that”.
BNYL said it had nothing against Kanu aside that his followers embarked on false propaganda.
