The leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been reportedly honoured with the best title in Igbo land, south-eastern Nigeria.
Kanu become decorated with the title of the ‘greatest Biafran Warrior’ by the Odumeze of Ohafia, Abia state, and different elders, consistent with Somto Okonkwo, who posted the pictures on social media.
Kanu, according to Okonkwo, is now the Otu Onye Nakpu Ogwe 1 of Biafra Land.
However, the controversy that appears to have emerged from the award of the identify is the place of the late Biafran warlord, Odumegwu Ojukwu. Ojukwu, who become an officer of the Nigerian army before the conflict, is often described as a warrior and even had a name to that effect.
Aniebo Nwamu, a Nigerian analyst, recently stated: “one of the prominent titles conferred on Ojukwu on his return from exile in 1982 was Dike Di Ora Mma (The warrior loved by all).”
He described the name as “an apt description of the visionary from the east who become born inside the north and grew up in the west.”
Until months in the past, Nnamdi Kanu were in detention at the order of the federal government over alleged treasonable offences.
The government is also reportedly asking the court to withdraw the bail condition it granted Kanu with the argument that he had abused some of the conditions he became given.
It had in advance stated that Nnamdi Kanu, on Wednesday, September 6, received some IPOB supporters who have been released from alleged army detention.
It was gathered that the unarmed youths were detained on Monday night time, September 4, on the famous Isi Gate place, when they clashed with the army.
