The self-appointed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has fingered 62 prominent Nigerians for the current challenges bedeviling the nation.
The controversial IPOB leader made this disclosure in a post on his Facebook page.
Nnamdi Kanu revealed that the people in his list must be held responsible for the current state of the nation; even as he held that their roles in ensuring the ouster of former President Goodluck Jonathan; as well as the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari at the polls in 2015 made them culpable. He added that anyone whose villages, cities, or town is currently under siege by Fulani herdsmen should hold these people responsible.
Nnamdi Kanu accused the 62 Nigerians of misleading others in installing Buhari.
“These people went to school [they claim they are educated]. Many of them are professors. Some claimed to have direct access to God. Some are gifted with ‘prophesies.’ They read history. They understood international relations. And they understood how societies work or so we thought.
“They were more than 20 years old in 1983 when Buhari shot himself to power. They saw Buhari destroy the economy in 1983…If Buhari was not speaking and defending his Fulani heritage he would be fighting to defend his religious heritage.
“Never for once did he defend Nigeria or gave interview on how to rebuild the economy, education, power, health, etc. They saw everything this man did. They knew him too well to miss the little details of his violent life. But they were united in hatred.
“Hatred for Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. One among the few Nigeria leaders that actually wanted Nigeria to work.’’
