Biafra soldiers

The Leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Okwu Kanu on Tuesday, unveiled a group of men and women in military uniforms as ‘soldiers of Biafra’.

Kanu, who was seen spotting a white traditional outfit and a Jewish prayer shawl participated in a ‘military’ parade outside his home in Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia state.

Mr Kanu had earlier stated that he was ready to go to war with the rest of Nigeria in order to actualize Biafra. His statements are coming shortly after the federal government rejected his calls for a referendum. [myad]
