Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has berated what appears to be false information circulated earlier by the then Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo on Friday.
Kanu had remarked during one his evening broadcast condemned religious leaders regarding continued silence over the killing of Nigerians by armed bandits.
He said “Every pastor in Nigeria is evil”, Warning anyone still following them to Church is heading directly to hell. He noted that messages shared on the pulpit are “messengers of Darkness, of Liars and deceivers”
Reacting to this, Asari Dokubo shared a video message Acknowledged to be Biafran but cannot work with the IPOB leader because his Biafra would not guarantee freedom of religion.
Asari alleged that IPOB members have embarked on destroying notable items that represent the Church, including Monument of Mary and Angel Gabriel.
He claimed Kanu led his followers to pull down churches, threatened to kill Christians, Muslims including him, Asari because they (IPOB) believed to be Jewish fanatics.
Making further clarification on his twitter handle, @MaziNnamdiKanu said Biafra will be a secular state and not Theocratic state as insinuated in Asari’s statement.
He maintained that the nation of Biafra will encourage freedom of Religion through constitutional guidelines, unlike Nigeria’s structure that enables or condone ‘religious criminality.
Kanu had earlier commended @USCIRF on their response to religious freedom in Nigeria, however, they appealed to intervene on freeing Christians and Jewish trapped in Nigeria regards the sustained Islamic persecution.
