Nobody can stop me from visiting Lagos – Nnamdi Kanu brags

Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the In­digenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has
de­clared that nobody could stop him from visiting Lagos State if he
wanted. Kanu who spoke exclusive­ly to The AUTHORITY in Umuahia, was
reacting to threats by some individu­als and groups that his safety is
not guaranteed in Lagos even as rumours are rife that Kanu is planning
to storm the commercial city.

The Biafra activist said his
inalienable right of freedom of movement could not be limited by anyone
or scarified on the altar of mere threat, add­ing that threats only
em­bolden him.

“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.”

Asked if his much-
talk­ed- about visit to Lagos was by any invitation or only meant to
prove his temerity, he simply said “I am not under obligation to tell
you”, but quickly added that “I have friends with connections in Lagos”.

“Kani Fayode is my friend and he is in Lagos. If I try to visit him in Yoruba land, then I must see him in Lagos”, Kanu said.

On
the possibility of his being re- arrested for al­leged flouting of his
bail conditions, Kanu said he was not afraid of being re­arrested,
adding that such development would only facilitate the actualisation of
Biafra.

“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 %.
