The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has declared that nobody could stop him from visiting Lagos State if he wanted. Kanu who spoke exclusively to The AUTHORITY in Umuahia, was reacting to threats by some individuals and groups that his safety is not guaranteed in Lagos even as rumours are rife that Kanu is planning to storm the commercial city.
The Biafra activist said his inalienable right of freedom of movement could not be limited by anyone or scarified on the altar of mere threat, adding that threats only embolden him.
“I go to anywhere I want to go. I don’t listen to threats. They motivate me rather than dampen my spirit. That thing people say I cannot do is what I love to do. When the time comes I will go to Lagos if I have to go to Lagos.”
Asked if his much- talked- about visit to Lagos was by any invitation or only meant to prove his temerity, he simply said “I am not under obligation to tell you”, but quickly added that “I have friends with connections in Lagos”.
“Kani Fayode is my friend and he is in Lagos. If I try to visit him in Yoruba land, then I must see him in Lagos”, Kanu said.
On the possibility of his being re- arrested for alleged flouting of his bail conditions, Kanu said he was not afraid of being rearrested, adding that such development would only facilitate the actualisation of Biafra.
“If you arrest me, Biafra will come even quicker than we anticipate. I am not afraid of being arrested. I have been there before and if need be I will also be there again.
“I will be very happy if they re-arrest me. If we are hoping for 90% compliance with the boycott of Anambra State Governorship election, my arrest will make the compliance 100 %.
