Court don adjourn Nnamdi Kanu trial go October: Full gist here
“We’re the owners of the territorial area of Biafra with the Ibibios and Oron. In 1967,Eastern Ijaws were part of the Eastern Region and the Eastern consultative assembly was convoked in Enugu and Francis Opigo, an Ijaw man, suggested the name Biafra be adopted and it was adopted. Biafra has nothimg to do with Igbo. Nobody can dismiss the geographical fact that the area known as Biafra is Ijaw. And on May 30, Republic of Biafra was declared which included the Eastern territory within our territory, so Biafra has nothing with Igbo.”
Dokubo talk say he sure of wetin he talk well well and anybody wey no gree fit come argue with am. He talk say even the late Ijaw revolutionary , Isaac Jasper Adaka Boro, been talk am for him book, the 12-day Revolution say Biafra been dey before Republic of Biafra. He follow talk why him and Nnamdi Kanu no dey vibe wella.
Read wetin he talk here:
“Instead of calling for all-inclusive Biafra, Kanu wants an Igbo Biafra so he will say Chukwuokike Abiama is the God of Igboland, the god of Biafra. who is Chukwuokike Abiama? I do not know him. It is not an Ijaw word. He comes around and says Biafra is a Jewish state. I’m not a Jew. I will never be a Jew. My ancestors are superior to Jews. The Jews tell a story that they were chosen. No, my ancestors were chosen. It is only a tyrannical god that will choose one person above others. We did not lobby God to create us. Anyone who believes that God has hosen people is satanic and that God is a forerunner to Hitler.
I am an Ijaw man, a Kalabari Ijaw man. Kanu said Islam will not be in his Biafra and I said No, which one is your Biafra? The Biafra that I know is Ijaw. I have no business with Kanu’s Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, as long as it does not concern Biafra. When you call Biafra, I’m included in Biafra and I will stand up as a Biafran that does include me. I am a Muslim not a Jew”
He follow talk say he know whether IPOB na Igbo and even if he get Igbo blood for him vein as him great ancestor, Nagbogbo Ari been from Igbo, Ogbom for Abam before he come Kalabari for di 1820s, he no be Igbo man today.
