Uchechi Okwu-Kanu, the wife of the controversial director of Radio Biafra, has revealed why her husband supports the idea of the independence of Biafra states.
Uchechi Okwu-Kanu said:
“It is the British who laid the foundation of Nigeria. And these people are of different culture, different religion, different belief, different understanding of life.
“So we all are different in several ways every way. We are not actually meant to be together. You must have heard about the Biafran war. My mom was born a few years before we defended ourselves. We defended ourselves for over a long period of time,” she added.
“We don’t have better schools, we don’t have better roads, we don’t have anything, not even jobs,” she added.
“So that is why what they are doing is to live. So I would say referendum is not a bad idea, is not about an option, but the people need to understand why we want Biafra.”And that’s what Nnamdi Kanu is doing, sanitising his people, creating awareness. And you can see that a lot of people have woken up from slumber. Most people who are sleeping have come to realise that this is really what it should be. I mean if he releases and he stops it means he’s been defeated or he doesn’t know what he wanted in the first place.”
