The  leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu , last Monday vowed never to give up his agitation for Biafra Republic.
The rebellious group leader made the declaration  when  he paid a thank-you visit to the Eastern Consultative Assembly, ECA, in Enugu.
Kanu was received by top members of the ECA, including Chief (Mrs) Maria Okwor, Evang. Elliot Ugochukwu-Ukoh, among others.
The IPOB  leader, who expressed  his gratitude for support showed to him by the two groups, said he chose the option of fighting to liberate the people of Biafra and that there was no going back.
According to him,  “I have chosen the option that we must be free as a people; that we must be liberated as a race and that we must have every freedom, due to us, God-given and I would not want to go to heaven to experience it;I want to experience it here.
“I thank all of you that worked very hard, especially the Igbo Youth Movement; I must be specific, and the Eastern Consultative Assembly and all the market men, market women, those that closed their shops to see us and all those who made efforts to ensure that I was not consumed.
“I thank all of you; those who contributed to my being here today, because without your pressure, I don’t think I will be here. However, the work is not done yet, we need to finish it.
Kanu added:” I desire Biafra, I want Biafra, I want nothing else other than Biafra, I will not settle for anything else other than Biafra. That was what I born to do and that is what I will do till the day Biafra will come that we may live as free men on this very earth as the Most High God, Chukwu Okike Abiama ordained it”.
Commenting on his bail conditions by the court, he described it as obnoxious and unconstitutional, vowing to challenge it in the days ahead.
“On those we left behind, we are making effort to see that they come out because they committed no crime. All we are seeking for is freedom; a return to the values we had before the advent of white men.
“A situation where people move their cows into our farms and slaughter our people will no longer be acceptable.”
When approached for interview by the newsmen, Kanu declined, citing the bail conditions given to him by the court.
