The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has vowed that, he would rather die than forfeit his dream of realizing a Biafra Republic

He disclosed that he would not push for a civil war to achieve Biafra independence but would employ the truth which he described as a ‘more potent and deadlier weapon than bullet and mortars’.

He also expressed his distrust and disgust at the dishonesty of most Nigerian political leaders.

His words: “No, I have not changed my mind. An independent Biafra means going back to where we were before the Whiteman came. I am talking about total independence from Nigeria.

“When I say Biafra or death, I mean I will keep pushing either I am alive or dead in the process, I won’t stop.

“Had sovereign national conference been convened by the powers that be, where every ethnic nationality group sit down to ask what type of country do we want; sit down discuss and agree; I can begin to perhaps submit.
