Election Boycott: I’m Not Ordinary Human Being, Nnamdi Kanu Fires Back At Asari Dokubo


The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu on Tuesday said former militant leader, Asari Dokubo should be ashamed of himself for canvassing for votes ahead of the upcoming elections.

Asari had lambasted Kanu for asking Biafrans and Igbo to boycott the forthcoming elections.

Responding, Kanu said he is not an “ordinary human being” and a poor man like the former militant leader.

Speaking through IPOB’s Deputy Leader, Uche Okafor-Mefor, Kanu stated that he was a freedom figter and not out for resource control like Dokubo.

In the statement availed DAILY POST, Mefor said: “We cannot mix resource control with freedom of the people of Biafra. Allow me to state unequivocally that Nnamdi Kanu is not for resource control.

“He is absolutely for freedom of Biafra and her people and as such evidently too powerful and sophisticated for certain small, jolted minds that lack discipline and unbridled, decent sense of collectedness.

“Our commitment is absolute, our resolve insurmountable, it must sink into the Consciousness of these political contractors who claim to be freedom fighters that our Decision to boycott this already rigged presidential election is irreversible and settled unless our demands for equity , fairness and justice are met”.

“You said you are no longer a Nigerian, what then are you doing canvassing for voting in Nigeria. Do you think Nnamdi Kanu is like you that collected Amnesty money from Yar’Adua and the regime of Obasanjo/Atiku that slaughted thousands of our brethren in Odi and other areas.

“Are you not ashamed of yourself for canvassing for the election of the man who was VP when Odi was put to the sword. You fought for resource control and failed so you want Nnamdi Kanu to repeat your mistakes? No! It will never ever happen. Nnamdi Kanu is a freedom fighter not a resource control advocate like you. There lies the difference between two of you.

“You allowed politicians to purchase your conscience, Nnamdi Kanu is not an ordinary human being and very soon you will realise this. Nnamdi Kanu is not as hungry as you are because a poor man should not embark on freedom fighting. Go back to your business interests in Cotonou and leave freedom fighting to freedom fighters. Keep ranting for your one Nigeria. I pray you don’t suffer the fate of our illustrious heroes like Isaac Adaka Boro and Ken Saro-Wiwa.”.

    Any Igbo or Biafran campaigning about PVC or elections at this critical time, is doing so for the money he or she will make from dirty nigeria politics and not for the good of his or her people. REMEMBER; No Election In Biafra Land Come 16 Feb 2019. Sit At Home And Be Counted In Our Referendum.

  2. The way this statement was delivered and Nnamdi Kanu’d attached to it is very wrong of Uche Mefor. It sent out wrong message and made it look like Nnamdi Kanu made the statement or authorized him to make the statement on his behalf.

    What will it profit you to boycott election and still stay under same administration for another 4years.
    Think people think!
