Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of separatist group, the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), has reminded his followers that the agitation for Biafra is to defend their people, not to kill them.
The IPOB leader spoke during court appearance on Tuesday, in response to growing violence in the country’s Southeast zone.
The IPOB leader who spoke shortly after being denied bail by a federal high court in Abuja, noted that he wants “Biafra land” to be peaceful.
He said he was not disappointed with the denial of his bail.
Kanu said, “It is what we expect to happen and I want our people to be very calm. I want Biafra land to be calm and very peaceful,” Kanu said.
“We are fighting to defend our people not to kill them. We are fighting to defend them and that is why I’m here. And we will continue to do so until we get victory.”
