Nnamdi Kanu: 'No Biafra Referendum, No Election In South-East Nigeria'
"On the 30th of May, we will shut this very place down and prepare for Biafra.
The choice is theirs, if they will give us a date for the referendum. And if they fail to do that there will be no election in the south east forever and ever."
These words were greeted by loud cheers and jubilation. The crowd seemed aroused to a new consciousness. They could taste the idea of secession.
Nnamdi Kanu is Jew. That is no longer news. What is new is his renewed resolve and courage which he may have garnered during his prolonged stay in isolation within the premises of the Nigerian Prisons.
He speaks of May 30 with some certainty that the thin threads holding the Nigerian state may be loosened by a simple compliance with a call to 'sit at home'.
Clad in all white, Kanu is seen in the mist of more than ten people which might be in violation of bail conditions which he promised to uphold.
