Biafra Nnamdi Kanu

The details of the much anticipated “vital meeting” involving the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and officials of the United Nations (UN) have emerged.

Eye9ja reports that Kanu said after the meeting that issues concerning his people, the IPOB struggle have been tabled before various arms and agencies of the United Nations (UN).

The Biafran and IPOB leader said this in a statement issued by the Media and Publicity Secretary of the IPOB, Emma Powerful, on Thursday, September 19.

At the meeting with UN officials, the IPOB leader said Biafra’s case would no longer be ignored.

The statement of the IPOB leader made this statement a day after he had the “vital meeting” with some officials of the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.

Recalls that Kanu had led a delegation of ‘Biafrans’ to a series of meetings with various United Nations agencies and officials at Geneva where he presented Biafra’s plight to the UN officials.

The IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, in a statement on Thursday, said Kanu’s emergence from the meeting was met with chants of eulogy by a congregation of Biafrans.

The statement reads in part: “Every issue concerning our people is now before the various arms and agencies of the United Nations. Our case will no longer be ignored.

“The case of RUGA settlement was also raised and the august body was left in doubt that Biafrans will never allow Fulani terror settlements in Biafraland.

“Incessant killing of Biafrans in their own land by terrorist Fulani herdsmen, extortion and killing of Biafran motorcyclists and commercial drivers by Nigerian army and police over refusal to give #50 bribery.”
