The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, said that despite continued intimidation against members of pro-Biafra groups by the federal government, he will remain undeterred in the restoration of the Republic of Biafra in Igboland.
Kanu, who expressed his dismay at the current state of affairs in the country, said Nigerian systems have collapsed under the administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Nigeria newspaper report that the IPOB leader declared this when he received members of the Bayelsa state group, who were in his Umuahia residence to condemn him for the disappearance of his late parents (Nnamdi) and supreme traditional ruler of the ancient kingdom of Afaraukwu Ibeku, Eze Israel Kanu and Ugoeze.

Mazi Kanu, represented by Prince Mene Kanu on Friday, urged IPOB members in Bayelsa to stand firm and never be deterred by the antics of the government led by Buhari.
Recall that the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) had announced the death of their leader’s father, Israel Kanu.
A statement by Emma Powerful, Secretary of Media and Advertising of the group, simply stated that the monarch has joined his wife, Lolo Sally Kanu, to be with his creator.
In a statement announcing the death of Eze Israel Kanu, IPOB also blamed the military and the assault on his family. Powerful added that the death of Israel Kanu was accelerated by the death of his wife.
But, the IPOB leader during the condolence visit said: “I have confidence in the members of IPOB in the state of Bayelsa. If you go, tell everyone that Biafra has come to stay. We will not sell They can intimidate us, but they will not stop the restoration of Biafra.
“You can see what we are experiencing in this country now. People who said no to Biafra say yes today. Biafra will come. I thank you for coming to identify with us in this moment of pain and sorrow. ”
