Former Presidential candidate, Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, says he is a Biafran just as the Hausas are known as Arewas and Yorubas are known as Oduduwas. Iwuanyanwu said this over the weekend while reacting to the release of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu last week.
According to Iwuanyanwu, there was no reason for the Federal Government to have detained Kanu in the first place.
“I have always said that was no reason detaining Nnamdi Kanu. In the law of this country which I know unless you have arms. Nnamdi Kanu didn’t commit any treason. Treason is when you take up arms against the government, he didn’t take up any arms, there was no reason whatsoever for detaining him, because everybody have the right to say I want Biafra, everybody have the right to say I want Biafra. For God’s sake, I’ve made it clear to people that Biafra is for the Igbo. Hausas are Arewas, Yorubas are Oduduwas and we are Biafrans. There is a problem we have because Biafra fought a war and people are ashamed to say they are Biafrans but I am not afraid to say I am a Biafran. Biafra is part of Nigeria, Arewa is part of Nigeria, Oduduwa is part of Nigeria; all of us are there. If a person from Oduduwa takes up arms to secede from Nigeria, its treason but if one is just saying by words of mouth, it just an ordinary expression of public opinion. There is no law that makes such a person get convicted by just saying we want to secede, it’s a right of expression. But if somebody from Oduduwa is amassing arms to topple the government to secede, its treason.
