Nnamdi Kanu also pleaded with IPOB members in Argentina to assist with the Argentine Breeds of Cattle to cross breed those that will be reared in Biafra Land.
Also Nnamdi Kanu condemned the blockade of food stuff from the North to the Southern part of the country.
Kanu described the blockade as an act of war.
In a tweet, the IPOB leader wondered why President Muhammadu Buhari would allow such.
According to Kanu: “Nigerians know that the Fulani does not farm. Yet, it’s the Fulani that is blocking movement of farm products from North to South.
