The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, says he will be embarking on a tour of the United States of America (USA) and Canada.
The secessionist leader made this known on Thursday, May 16, during what he tagged a “live global address.”
During the broadcast, Kanu who is currently in the United Kingdom (UK), said he would be visiting the countries to preach the gospel of “Biafra restoration.
“In the next couple of days, I will be in the United States of America and I will also be touring Canada where this same gospel will be preached before a privileged audience of the children of Biafra, that Biafra may come in our time,” Kanu said during a broadcast monitored by by this reporter.
Nnamdi Kanu’s planned tour is coming days to the scheduled “Biafra Remembrance Day.”
It would be recalled that IPOB declared May 30 as sit-at-home day throughout the Southeast referred to as “Biafraland” by pro-Biafra activists and Nigeria in remembrance of its fallen heroes and heroines.
Meanwhile, Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
