Nigeria will burn if I'm re-arrested- Nnamdi Kanu threatens FG
In a recent interview with The Sun, Kanu who was reacting to moves bMoree government to re-arrest him for breaching his bail condition said he has not committed any offence or crime.
He said the bail conditions were unconstitutional as it violated his rights to speak, be heard and to associate with people.
According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari was the one who broke the laws by disobeying court orders to release him unconditionally.
He said Buhari and his cousin, Lawal Daura are the ones who should be detained for flagrant disobedience to court orders.“Before now, Nnamdi Kanu is Igbo, he is a Biafran and can be arrested and nothing will happen but that would not be anymore, it would no longer happen.“Quote me verbatim. If I’m re-arrested, this country will burn, I assure you. From where that oil moneythey depend on, they can no longer have access to it. I assure them that. This is not empty threat. We’re IPOB, we don’t abandon our own.“I will sacrifice anything including myfamily to ensure that Biafra is restored. Any obstacle on my way willbe obliterated. I’m not asking for Sokoto; I’m not asking for Kaduna, or Borno, I said this very land where my progenitors raised us; the land of our ancestors; of over 5, 000 years old, this land must be free, absolutely free, I assure you of that. The way wewere before the whiteman came; had the white man not come, I would have no relationship with Sokoto, non whatsoever.”The whiteman is not God, only God can create a nation, Lord Luguard is not God, only God can create a nation.I can tell you the day Nigeria was created even till the exact second andhour, but you can’t tell me when Biafra was created. It came as a result of organic interaction of cultures and value systems and traditions fussed into one to make Biafra a possibility, that is how nations emerge.”By the collision of commonalities andvalue systems, not one idiot somewherepontificating and dictating to us who should be in a country or not. Other African people can accept it, Nnamdi Kanu cannot accept that. The whiteman is not God and cannot create a country for me. Have Nigerians sat round the table to say we have agreed that our name is Nigeria? We want to live together; perhaps, there will be a strong argument against what I’m proposing. Right now, what we are seeking to do is go back to where we were before 1914. From there, we can then begin tonegotiate and discuss,” he said.
