IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has accused Britain of being responsible for the ‘death’ of Biafra republic.

Eye9ja reports that Nnamdi Kanu made this known in a claim on his micro-blogging account Twitter Page.

In his claim on Saturday, the leader of the proscribed group said the “Republic of Biafra – which existed between 1967 and 1970 – was ‘unlawfully made defunct’ by Britain.”

Eye9ja, however, learned that period between 1967 and 1970 was Nigeria’s civil war period when federal forces engaged the Biafran forces who wanted to break away from the country.

It is believed Britain secretly provided support for the federal forces in terms of weapons and military intelligence during the civil war.

Kanu, however, vowed to ensure the restoration of an independent and recognized the Republic of Biara.

This comes in just few days after this online news platform had reported that the leader of the outlawed group, Nnamdi Kanu vowed to actualize the struggle for Biafra.
