The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, stated this on Thursday, January 14 while speaking at the ‘2nd Never Again Conference: 51 Years After Nigerian-Biafran Civil War’ organised by an Igbo think-tank, Nzuko Umunna.
‘One Nigeria’ is a terminology used by Nigerians and non-Nigerians alike to project Nigeria as a united entity. Nigeria is largely divided along ethnic and religious lines. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu believes that Nigeria is better off partitioned into the different constituent ethnic entities than being together as conceptualised by colonial Great Britain.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) which seeks to restore the State of Biafra which existed before the colonial era and existed as a sovereign nation from 1967 – 1970.
