Uchechi Kanu, wife of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has stated that her husband is ready to trade her and his children for Biafra. In an interview with Thisday, she said her hubby is obsessed with Biafra to the point of 'insanity'.
“He is a man that is obsessed with Biafra to the point of insanity and many times he has said publicly that he would gladly sacrifice me, the children and the wider family, if that is what it would take for Biafra to be free,” she said.
“That is the type of man Nigeria is facing, and that is the kind of man my husband is.”
Kanu’s wife said she would not advise her husband to jettison his struggle for Biafra. She explained that to him, “freedom from oppression is the holy grail”.
“Anybody advising him to jettison the struggle, he will despise. That is his personality,” she said.
“All he thinks about is Biafra and he would always say that he can only be regarded as a complete man when he’s able to rise up in the morning as a free man with Biafran flag flying on top of our house. That is what he always told me.”
