Self-exiled Kanu made this vow on his known Twitter handle on Saturday, May 30, 2020 - Biafra Remembrance Day.
If you say that #Biafrans should move on & commit to #OneNigeria, then show us what our parents GAINED after they moved on in 1970.
They gained NOTHING & lost EVERYTHING from a #FailedState that has turned to a #Zoo. My generation will END this in #BiafraExit. pic.twitter.com/mnctWHpOep

The banned IPOB and other pro-Biafra groups observe the Biafra Heroes Day 2020 on a 'low-key' due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The Nigerian Civil War, also known as the Biafran War and the Nigerian-Biafran War (6 July 1967 – 15 January 1970), was a war fought between the government of Nigeria and the secessionist state of Biafra.
It is approximated that close to three million people lost their lives as a result of the Nigerian civil war, with most of them dying from diseases and hunger.
Kanu is the latest in a line of ethnic Igbo activists taking up the cause of pushing for an independent state, saying the Igbos have been marginalised by successive Nigerian governments.
