Biafra: Referendum made Atiku a Nigerian – Kanu’s Counsel


Lawyer to detained leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nmamdi Kanu, Aloy Ejimakor has taken a swipe at those opposed to conducting of referendum for the state of Biafra, saying it was referendum that made Abubarkar Atiku a Nigerian.

In a statement, Ejimakor, elaborating more on the gains of referendum, said it was through plebiscite that Midwest Region came into being in 1964.

In not finding anything wrong with plebiscite, he said many nations including Eritrea, Kosovo, South Sudan and others, were created through referendum.

“It is referendum that made Abubakar Atiku a Nigerian and which may as yet make him President. It’s through referendum that Midwest Region came into being in 1964.

“This is all within Nigeria, not counting the many nations that were created through referendum, such as Eritrea, Kosovo, South Sudan, etc.”

The IPOB leader’s counsel said the problem is not the separatist agitation, IPOB or Nnamdi Kanu, but what he described as the “misguided militarist response to it which, instead of containing it, is actually validating the agitation and convulsing Southeast and Nigeria to boot”.
