Radio Biafra is a radio station that is becoming very popular in South Eastern Nigeria.
The station manned by a self acclaimed freedom fighter Nnamdi Kanu otherwise known as the Director has brought excitement to many pro Biafra Igbo’s.
Nnamdi Kanu is the founder of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, a Biafra secessionist movement clamouring for the independence of Biafra. The group has its headquarters in the Basque region of Spain and has members scattered around the world.
The self styled Nnamdi Kanu who criticised former President Goodluck Jonathan for being incompetent and a coward. He also describes president Muhammadu Buhari as Terrorist-President and a pedophile.
‘Did Buhari not take the President by force?’
He says Biafrans must stand up and fight for their freedom from the zoo, a name he uses to describe Nigeria. He tells his listeners that the Igbos and Niger-Deltans are being marginalized by a Nigeria dominated by Hausa/Fulani and Yoruba.
He speaks about the Biafran civil war that lasted between 1967-1970.
Are we not the victims of genocide, are we not the ones?
The thing that Awolowo and Gowon did is it not genocide? … So Gowon is not a war criminal?
Whose shops are they burning in Lagos? … Of curse we are going to go to war.
Recently, Nnamdi Kanu took a swipe at Yoruba Pentecostal pastors; Pastor E.A Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel and Pastor W.F Kumuyi of Deeper Life Bible Church.
He directed his followers to attack Pastor W.F Kumuyi if he sets foot in Aba.
Nnamdi Kanu may seem to be broadcasting hate and anarchy but his followers are growing with the reenactment of the Biafran war seeming inevitable.
