Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has issued a warning to President Muhammadu Buhari-led Government of Nigeria over his refusal to order a referendum.
Kanu warned that Nigerians would consider order options to ensure secession, if Buhari refused to conduct a referendum.
In a series of tweets, the IPOB leader maintained that sovereignty is taken and not given.
According to Kanu: “Sovereignty is not given, it is taken – Atatürk of Turkey.
“Now, I say unto @NGRPresident, that if you don’t concede to a Referendum for the peaceful dissolution of Nigeria, there will come a time when the indigenous peoples of #Nigeria will consider other options. #WeMove
“Separation comes with quantum benefits. Soviet Union, Ethiopia, Czechoslovakia, etc suffered when they were held in unity by force.”
