Biafra: I’m Ready To Abdicate Throne For Biafra – Eze Kanu, Nnamdi Kanu’s Father

As the River Nile runs from Victoria in Uganda to Egypt, so activism runs in the family of the traditional ruler of Afaraukwu in Umuahia, the Abia State capital. From the monarch himself, His Royal Majesty, Eze Sir I. O. Kanu, Eze Ikputu of Afara Ukwu Ibeku in Umuahia, to the least of his children, it’s all the same blue blood of activism permanently glued in their veins. In the early 1990s, Nnamdi Kanu’s younger brother, Emmanuel, spearheaded the agitation for the reduction of school fees. Now Nnamdi, is leading a group to demand the freedom of Biafra.

In this interview, their father, HRH Eze Kanu, who said it was activism that made him represent his area three times as Councillor, said he was ready to abdicate his throne over the course for which his son is being detained.

Excerpts:

How do you feel concerning your son appearing in court last week?
I’m very happy that he was brought to court on Monday (last week). From what I heard, as I was not able to go because of my health, I was impressed at least my family members were able to see him.

You may have had high hopes your son would be released last week, but he was not. How do you react to this failed expectation?
Well, it’s true that his release has taken time, but every Biafran in Abuja, I learnt, was protesting that he be released. Even those of them that were not on their Biafran uniform later changed to it, flying their flags and also chanting that he should be released. It made me sad that he was not released because I expected them to release him on that very day, but it didn’t come through, instead they adjourned the case.

Do you think it is just for him to continue to be in custody?
No, I don’t see any reason they should not obey the order, which granted him bail; they should not continue to detain him. He is not supposed to be in cell any more.

What’s your appeal to the Federal Government?
I’m appealing to the Federal Government and (President Muhammadu) Buhari) in particular to release my son because he is not fighting with arms; he is just talking with his mouth. Also, half of Nigerians believe that he has not done any wrong and he should be released. Buhari should tamper justice with mercy and release him because he has not come to destroy, rather he wants to set things right. If Biafra is granted, there is nothing Nigerians will look for in Biafra that they will not get; the same is applicable to Biafrans. Using the case of Lot of Abraham as an example, we want peace. We are not the same as the northerners; so I don’t see any reason any one who knows the right thing will not do it. If we go to other countries, we will see how they gained their independence.

Will you advice your son to stop the Biafran pursuit for his freedom?
No, I will not. Biafra is not only applicable to my family; it is for everyone.

Would you abdicate your throne as condition for Biafra to be realised?
Yes, even in the next 24 hours I will agree if that is the condition necessary for Biafrans to be free. My kingship is not as important as Biafran freedom.

Why is Biafra so important to you?
Biafra is important to me because there is nothing greater than one’s freedom. Yes, we are just like slaves the way we are. For example, the newly appointed ministers, can’t you see we are rejected. All the positions we are supposed to get they shared among themselves; so I want Biafra.

What word do you have for your son, Nnamdi?

I am asking him to be patient; what we do not get today might be got tomorrow. Nothing is going to happen to him, by Gods grace. Let him be careful with the food and water he takes there because they can kill him through any means possible. Even if he dies today, many others will rise for the actualisation of Biafra till the end, but we don’t pray for such to happen.

  6. His Majesty may u live long. You have said it all. Nigeria as a whole need to understand that we are fighting for our freedom A Biafra Nation which will benefit every one. I personally don't see any thing wrong in one seeking his or her freedom peacefully. My prayer is that God through his infinite mercies should make way for his servants especially our Able Director Dr. Nnamdi Kanu..... Amen

  8. You are really father and you talk like HRH we are seeing before earlier 1959 in Igbo land, not those called them self (IGWE) in Igbo land but they ended their life with evils, poisonous, etc. no one know that they existed in the autonomous community, because they depend in bribes, taking advantage of others souls because of money involved, hide truth because of our money Buhari and co is taking from Biafran land. Likewise no certificate we have as one Nigeria except Niger delta oil. And enough is enough. Look onto Biafran land today no single thing we use to be happy as one Nigeria. A country police can not arrest an accused except you give them money first, a country immigration office is issuing international passport without verification, if your Nigerian or Ghanaian that is why many country use Nigerian passport because they are black. A country army is intimidating people as they like, a country navy is coming out from sea and fight innocent citizens on the ground, a country Air Force is having checking point as police, a country barristers did not know there single stand, a country civil defence is arresting people as police. Etc. all happening in a country called Nigeria. And all this against Biafrans because that is only people have the money to settle due to them don't have problem, they don't need delay in their life, watch customs today what they are doing with Biafran traders in all the state and federal roads, a country custom is snatching car from the owner and start using it as his own properties, as well as Nigeria police. But I can shame to Nigeria Law Organisation , all their school in rubbish because this is one what one barrister will use and make huge amount from government is this such have in Asia or any part of Europe . Because all barristers in Nigeria is drunk, and sleeping because they are all riff raff.
