The leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has vehemently responded to Annkio Briggs who confirmed that Ijaws had lineage with Igbos but insisted that No one should help tell her story.
HISTORY NEVER LIE
“It is true and a fact that many riverine people across the breadth and length of Kalabari kingdom have Igbo lineage, I cannot tell another person’s story for them without their permission and l will never allow another person to tell my story either”. AnnKio-Briggs Thursday 28 May 2020, Vanguard newspapers
Thank you ma’am for publicly acknowledging, especially at this auspicious moment that Ijaw, Opobo, Bonny and the rest of the badly labeled South South/Niger-Delta people HAVE Igbo lineage.
By lineage it means we are ALL related by blood. This was the point I set out to establish when I started this debate. I am grateful for this clarification. Sometimes having a healthy debate is good for us. This is how our new Biafra will be.
