Mr powerful reacting to the list said: “We understand that Federal Government of Nigeria mapped out huge amount of money and political positions for them to carry out the heinous crime against Kanu. We promise them that any attack on Nnamdi Kanu or assassination attempt will radicalize the struggle for Biafra independence to the point which no one can curtail the radicalism for Biafra independence anymore.
“IPOB members cannot stop half way because the struggle for Biafra quest for freedom is at the point of no return, therefore Government of Nigeria should fix a date for referendum where people will decide through their votes, whether to leave Nigeria or stay in Nigeria,”
