Nnamdi Kanu, Nigerian Biafra political activist and leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday directed his followers to 'stone Nnia Nwodo, President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo to death', AllNews reports.
Nwodo had asked Igbo youths and other pro-Biafra agitators to employ diplomacy in their quest for self- determination.
He said that Ndigbo were not known for violence, and advised the youths to continue to maintain decorum and peace no matter the level of provocation.
The Ohanaeze leader gave the advice when he kicked off the distribution of COVID-19 palliatives procured by the president of the youths arm of the group, Arthur Obioha, for the young Igbo not long ago.
Reacting to the current insecurity being witnessed in Nigeria, self-exiled Kanu berated Ohanaeze for 'not listening to his warnings'.
"Years ago, I told the governors, Ohanaeze, anybody that is willing to listen to the revelation I had, that the Fulanis are coming," Kanu said during his routine Facebook Live broadcast.
"So if you want to know the reason why I speak to you the way I do, it is because of your foolishness. You were warned.
"Do you know what is paining me tonight? And why Nnia Nwodo should be stoned.
"Anywhere you see him outside, stone him to death."
Kanu further called on God to "destroy Ohanaeze".
The plan for Biafra is not new. In 1967 Igbo leaders declared a Biafran state, but after a brutal civil war, which led to the deaths of up to a million people, the secessionist rebellion was defeated.
But the idea of separatism has bubbled away since then and Kanu is the latest in a line of Biafran activists taking up the cause.
