Why my husband will not drop agitation for restoration of Biafra – Nnamdi Kanu's Wife speaks
Uchechi, who made the remark in a video online, described Nigeria as a contraption with its foundation laid by the British.
The wife of the IPOB leader maintained that government was using the resources of the South East to develop other regions at the detriment of Igbo people.
She said, “The British laid the foundation of the contraption called Nigeria, made up of the Biafra people, Oduduwa and Arewa people and these people were all of different culture, religion and believe towards things of life.
“We are all different in everyway and are not actually meant to be together.
“In fact, all the resources in Nigeria is coming from the Biafra land but then they are using the proceeds to develop the Nothern and Southern part. They, government, is using all the resources from Biafra land to give others a better life, whereas, the Biafrans are suffering.
“We don’t have better schools, roads and not even jobs. They just continuously press us down politically and otherwise and is why they don’t want us to leave.

“People have come to realise that this is really what it should be, if he stops along the way then it means he has been defeated or he don’t know what he wanted in the first place.
“If you ask for a bread because you are hungry and then you are thrown into jail and released still without the bread, you are still hungry aren’t you? So you still ask for your bread, except you weren’t hungry in the first place.
“He would continue, yes he will.”
This is coming at a time Kanu perfected his bail and was released from Kuje prison.
