Kan-u hear me? Kanu sends a warning to Okorocha in Owerri

Kanu “storms” Owerri, Okorocha “picks race”

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the separatist Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) addressed a massive rally in Owerri, the Imo State capital yesterday.

Kanu and IPOB want southeastern Nigeria, which includes Imo State, to be allowed to secede from the rest of the country via a referendum and to become the independent state of Biafra.  This obviously puts him at odds with the likes of Governor Rochas Okorocha, who have fed fat on the spoils of office and don’t appreciate anything that derails the gravy train.

Okorocha is an object of hatred for pro-Biafrans, who call him “Okoroawusa”, alleging his father is an Hausa man.  A source in Owerri told Naijiant.com that the governor left the capital (“picked race”) as soon as he got word that the rally was going to take place yesterday.

Another source close to Kanu informed us that the IPOB leader said that his arrival in Owerri was a “warning” to Okorocha and the next time he “storms” the city, he will be chasing Okorocha out of Government House, the governor’s official residence.
