The name ‘Nnamdi Kanu’ became an oft-mentioned name in every household in Nigeria in 2014 during which he stepped up the campaign for the Republic of Biafra, a defunct state reinstated in Nigeria after the civil war. Mr. Kanu, whose full name is Nnamdi Okwu Kanu, quickly became a public figure around the world after being arrested by the Nigerian government for alleged treason on October 14, 2015 and detained for over a year, despite various court orders which ordered his release. He was later released on bail after much pressure and a series of protests where government forces killed dozens of his supporters- members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) “Ohamadike,” as he is popularly called in the eastern region of Nigeria, became much more influential / powerful than the federal and state governments in the region after he was released on bail on April 28, 2017. Hated By Few But Respected By All Although few disagree with him that the only solution to the problems in Nigeria is to disintegrate the country, many people (including those who dislike his ideology) respect him for his courage in speaking against the bad actions of the Nigerian government. For many easterners, he is “another savior” because he speaks out and fights for their liberation from Nigeria which they often call “a zoo”. Mr. Kanuʼs supporters in Aba, Eastern Nigeria While some people in South Africa see him as another Nelson Mandela, Africans in Ghana, Cameroon, Gabon and others admire him for his courage and intelligence. His Stand On Biafra Kanu, who went into exile in 2017 after government forces attacked his home in Umuahia, Abia state, believes that only the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra will heal wounds of the genocide that had more than 3.5 million Igbo-Biafrans massacred. “We will restore Biafra no matter the cost,” he often says.
