The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has said that he will be very happy if he is re-arrested.
According to Vanguard, Kanu said that his re-arrest will quicken the actualisation of Biafra.
He said “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 %.
“But why will I be re-arrested and nobody is going to arrest Tanko Yakassai or Ango Abdulahi because of what they have been saying? Is it because they are Fulani? They own Nigeria? They are immuned to arrest? Is arrest only meant for Biafrans and not for Fulani?
“Who will arrest Lawal Daura of DSS for flouting court order to release Bright Chimezie Isinwa of IPOB? The Fulanis say whatever they like and go free and nobody holds them accountable because they own Nigeria.”
This is following a protest by Arewa Youth Assembly (AYA) on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 in Abuja, calling for Kanu’s arrest.
The IPOB leader also said that nobody can stop him from travelling to any part of Nigeria.
According to the IPOB leader, “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.
