Biafra: How Nnamdi Kanu destroyed IPOB - University Don

Date: 2017-09-26

Director, Centre for Peace and Strategic Studies (CPSS), University of Ilorin, Dr. Mahfouz Adedimeji, has observed that the 'animalizing' of those who are against the actualization of Biafra by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has led to the alienation of the group.

Speaking in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, the Unity Don maintained that the IPOB's agitation for the sovereign state of Biafra as a misplacement of priorities.

The University don while calling on agitators to embrace dialogue, likened IPOB agitation to cutting off one's head to cure a headache.

Adedimeji warned IPOB that there would be greater problems after secession, which they won’t be able to handle.

According to Adedimeji, "There is an overarching message of the Peace Day that we need to internalize.

"The message is the need to work together as one people regardless of our ethnic, religious, political or ideological differences.

"We are united by a single humanity and we are united by being Nigerians.

"The Almighty Allah who brought us together could not have committed an error, he is all-perfect.

"Therefore, the agitation for secession and the hullabaloo that it is generating are borne out of misplacement of priorities.

"Apart from secession not being a precursor to the Eldorado that some people are fantasizing about, (if so, the war ravaged South Sudan would have been the happiest country in the world) the wrong methodology of animalizing everyone who does not share the main protagonist's views will achieve alienation as pro Biafra agitators are now realizing."
