The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on Thursday said there are plans in place to annihilate General Olusegun Obasanjo and his bloodline if any harm should befall him.
According to SaharaReporters, Kanu made this threat at his Ibeku residence while addressing Igbo elders and chieftains. The pro-secessionist made the statement in reply to utterances credited to Obasanjo.
The former president had on Tuesday during a presentation of a book on the late Brigadier Zakariya Maimalari said Nigerians have to do everything in their power to avoid a repeat of the 1966 civil war. He said all must be done to stop the secessionist campaign, a campaign spearheaded by Nnamdi Kanu.
I remember Obasanjo calling us names. They said we must eliminate Kanu and for those words coming out from his mouth, he is going to die.
I told Obasanjo that I have given instructions to IPOB should anything happen to me. Everything that comes from Obasanjo’s lineage will die the same day at the same time. It is a standing instruction to IPOB.
Wherever they are, we will kill them ourselves at the same time, the same day, 12 noon, wherever we find them all over the world. I am not like anything they have seen before.
