Nnamdi Kanu's Father speaks on son's release; Is Mazi Kanu going to drop Biafra Struggle?

Nnamdi Kanu - Biafra news 6th May 2017
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu reunite with his father and mother after release -
Egwukwu 11 of Afaraukwu Ibeku, HRM (Eze) Israel Okwu Kanu, the father of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has vowed that his son, despite being released from detention will never stop the movement for Biafra restoration.

Eze Kanu stated this in an interview with Daily Sun at his palace in Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia State capital.

He said, Nnamdi's release gave him a sigh of relief, but that won't stop him from pursuing the cause of Biafra, following what people are saying that he will back down just like Uwazuruike did.

My son Nnamdi told me there were certain things people were saying about him that were not true, but that he would not say them now, but that later he will tell me, Eze Kanu added.

"My son is above 18 years, it is left for him to decide what to do and I always support whatever decision he takes.

"But to tell you one thing, since Nnamdi was born, he has never for once disobeyed me, but for this issue of Biafra, I am solidly behind him till I die. 


"I am urging him to go ahead with what he is doing, so far he has the support of his people and God will be with him, because he has told me on several occasions that even if he dies in the Biafran cause he will be happy.

"Many people are supporting him, not only here in Igbo land, but outside this country. For instance, when I went to Germany and saw the crowd that came in support of Nnamdi’s cause, I became afraid. 

"I started wondering why the agitation was so hot in a place like Germany, but when you come to this part of the world, it will appear as if nothing was happening. 

"German reporters and photojournalists queued up to take photographs of his wife and I and were interviewing us and the police had to be invited before we were given breathing space.


While thanking those who made it possible to ensure his son's release, he said; I pray God to bless those who in one way or the other contributed to the release of my son, Nnamdi. Having said that, I must also say that I am not happy the way governors from South East kept quiet over my son’s case since. Could it be they were afraid, afraid of what and who? 

This type of attitude is condemnable, I am not happy about that. I had hoped that they would have been together and made move for his release, but they stayed aloof. It was rather the Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose and the former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode who showed interest, God will bless them.

I will not in anyway forget the former governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, who when other Igbo leaders were afraid to talk about Nnmadi’s problem, visited my son in prison and also came to my palace here in Umuahia to see me, God will also bless him.
