According to Kanu, the separatist organization “saved” Nigerians ‘at the hands of people from the foothills of the #FutaJallon.’
“One day, #Nigerians will come to appreciate the fact that it was #IPOB that saved all of them at the hands of these people from the foothills of the #FutaJallon.”
Without apologies #ESN, has forever come to stay, and we do not owe #Fulanis any explanation on it.”
#FreeBiafra,” Kanu wrote on his known Twitter handle.
Outlawed IPOB is attempting to revive the now defunct Republic of Biafra, a declaration of independence which led to a 30-month civil war between 1967 and 1970.
More than one million people, mostly Igbo, were killed in the fighting or by starvation and disease.
