Meet Nnamdi Kanu, Africa’s most admired man - Azizi Bwana

Nnamdi Kanu, rights activist and leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB)

 Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, a British Nigerian Biafra political activist, is currently Africa’s most admired man.

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 prot noests where government forces killed dozens of his supporters- members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).

Vice

“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”.

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.

The 53-year-old’s role in activism which is often in the interest of his eastern people, other common masses in Nigeria and Africa, has also won him supporters from other continents.
