Some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) residing in Malaysia have donated a live cow allegedly named “Buhari” to their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The cow which was named before it was gifted to the IPOB leader ahead of the Biafra Day celebration is expected to be slaughtered on May 30th.
According to an online news medium, The BreakingTimes, Mazi Kanu “who has received hundreds of important visitors including high-placed politicians since he was released on bail by an Abuja High Court in April, accepted the gift warmly.”
Online photos have emerged showing two of IPOB members who donated the cow standing with Nnamdi Kanu and another photo showing them standing beside the said cow.
In defiance of one of his bail conditions, which prohibits him from being in a gathering of more than ten persons, Kanu over the weekend addressed a Shabbat Rally in his father’s compound.
In his address to the congregation, Kanu stressed that within the next few months Biafra will be achieved, adding that the enemies of Biafra are in trouble.
“On the 30th of May, we shut this place down and after that, we call for a referendum. There will be no election in Biafra forever and ever,” he said.
Maintaining that IPOB does not want a restructuring or the honouring of the Aburi Accord, but Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu said “it’s either Biafra or death. I was born to restore Biafra.” He then concluded his address with a prayer as the congregation lifted up their hands.
Also, while receiving a delegation of Ohaneze Youth Council (OYC) who paid him a solidarity visit on Sunday at his Afaraukwu Umuahia North Council home, Nnamdi Kanu commended the leadership and members of OYC for their steadfastness and faith in the struggle to achieve the Republic of Biafra, urging them to keep the spirit on.
Kanu praised the delegation led by the President, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, for their support for the Biafra cause even in the face of persecution by the past leaders of the parent body, Ohaneze Ndigbo.
Kanu reminded them that the fight for the liberation of Ndigbo was not a personal project but a fight for the good of the entire Igbo people. He also urged them to persevere, assuring that they would continue to work together to save Ndigbo and set them free.
