Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says it is impossible for anybody to Islamize Igboland when he (Kanu) is still alive.
According to him, there is an agenda to Islamize Nigeria but said that as long as he is alive, no part of Igboland will be Islamized.
He spoke on Thursday when he visited Nri community in Anambra State where he addressed some of his members.
“The Islamisation plot is real but they won’t succeed in my life time. No, never; not when I am alive. It is impossible. Impossible “he said
He also said the struggle for Biafra which he is championing is the fight for the survival of Christians in Nigeria against the entrenched threats of radical Islamic fundamentalists and their political collaborators within and outside Nigeria.
“The struggle for Biafra which I proudly lead is not a secessionist aspiration of NdiIgbo only as some erroneously think. Biafra is not just a living agitation but a fight for the survival of Christians in Nigeria against the entrenched threats of radical Islamic fundamentalists and their political collaborators within and outside Nigeria”. Kanu said
Kanu’s warning came on the heel of allegation by David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of Living Faith Church, that “Islamists are bent on islamising Nigeria.”
The Nigerian Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) also recently accused Northerners of plotting to turn Nigerian into a “caliphate.”
NCEF disclosed that some Buhari government’s policies are “directly or indirectly promoting the “theocratic agenda North has for Nigeria.”
