U.S Vs Iran : Nnamdi Kanu Warns Christians, Southerners May become Targets In Nigeria
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biaifra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that Christians and Southerners would bear the consequences of the death of Qassem Suleimani, an Iranian military commander killed by the United States.
Kanu’s statement follows a protest by some Islamic sect in Northern Nigeria after the head of Iran’s elite Qude Force was killed Friday in a US air strike in Baghdad.
The protesters were pictured carrying a flag depicting the image of Suleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhamandis and an inscription ‘Death to America: death to Israel.’
Kanu stated in a tweet on his official handle @ Mazi nnamdi Kanu, that the reprisal attack will tell on Christians and those from the Eastern and Southern regions of the country.
According to Kanu, ” Because Judeo-Christians, especially Biafrans in Arewa core north of the British created contraption ‘Nigeria’ will bear the brunt of this US strike in Iraq as always. Britain must stop shielding terrorists in Nigeria.”
Similarly, Thousands of people have on Saturday joined a funeral procession in Baghdad for Soleimani, al-Muhandis, and other victims who lost their lives in the same US air strike.
Aljazeera reports that procession started in Kadhimiya and was heading towards the Green Zone government and diplomatic compound, where a state funeral would take place.
What they failed to add to their banner is “Death to Biafra” because Judeo-Christians, especially Biafrans in Arewa core north of the British created contraption ‘Nigeria’ will bear the brunt of this US strike in Iraq as always. Britain must stop shielding terrorists in Nigeria. pic.twitter.com/7Wv55uwgAI— Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (@MaziNnamdiKanu) January 3, 2020
