Former governor of Abia state and the Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu has been given a serious warning by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu over his plan to end the agitation for Biafra.
He warned Orji Kalu that if he dares try to tell him to end Biafra agitation, the treatment that was given to Ike Ekweremadu in Germany, where he was beaten and harassed will be a child's play compared to what he will do to him.
Recall that in a statement issued on Tuesday, Orji Kalu had told President Muhammadu Buhari that he can convince the IPOB leader to come to Nigeria and end Biafra agitation.
The Senate Chief Whip added that Kanu will listen to him and stop the altercation between IPOB members and security personnel in the South-East.
“If the Federal Government permits me, I will go to the United Kingdom and negotiate with Nnamdi Kanu to return to Nigeria. I will convince him to drop the agitation for Biafra because our people don’t need it,” Orji Kalu had said.
However, during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra on Wednesday evening, Nnamdi Kanu warned the Senator against coming to convince him to end the agitation of Biafra.
He said that anybody coming to him with the intention of convincing him to drop the idea of Biafra will receive the treatment Ike Ekweremadu, a former Deputy Senate President, who was beaten up by IPOB members last year in Germany.
“Anybody coming to me with intention of convincing me to drop the idea of Biafra, I can assure you what happened to Ike Ekweremadu will be a child’s play to such an individual. This is the era of saboteurs and we must be very careful.
“I have not mandated anybody to speak on my behalf or myself to meet with Nigeria government nor representative to negotiate to stop Biafra agitation. I will only meet Nigeria government to show me boundaries of Biafra land and sign the necessary documents,” Nnamdi Kanu said.
