Biafra: Kanu’s detention‘ll create national problem —Cleric
By Nwabueze Okonkwo
ONITSHA—The General Overseer of Bethel House of God Mission, Awkunanaw, Enugu, Enugu State, Bishop Amaechi Agbo has advised the Federal Government to release the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu without further delay, to avoid throwing the nation into an unmanageable crisis.
He said Kanu’s continued detention will continue to create more problem for the Nigerian nation since according to him, detention of Kanu will not stop Biafra from becoming a reality, rather it would generate a crisis that will quicken the coming of Biafra.
Bishop Agbo who spoke at a special service organised for Nigerian leaders, noted that Biafra will surely come to pass, but not as soon as it is being speculated, rather at the appropriate time when the crisis will possibly force Biafra to separate from Nigeria.
“As for Biafra, it will come to pass but not now. Crisis will force Nigeria to separate from Biafra and nobody can stop it at the appropriate time,” he said.
On the general state of the Nigerian nation, Bishop Agbo identified 2016 as a year Nigerians would witness positive-like changing transformation in the country.
According to him: “The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has actually introduced truth, honesty and accountability to the management of the affairs of the nation,” adding that with the application of such healthy values in public service, the success of the nation’s security, economy, health, education and administrative policies, economic recovery would be guaranteed.
