Controversial Nigerian classic rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem has aired his opinion on the current Biafra struggle and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
In a recent interview with LIB, the rapper is quoted as saying:
‘I think Nnamdi Kanu is fighting a very good cause but in a very bad way. He’s still on bail, so what he should have basically done is to peacefully put together a referendum by calling on people who believe in what he’s doing and also seek support from a couple of countries and take it up non violently’.
He also said:
‘You can’t be out on bail and be agitating for something because that could basically lead us to war and we don’t need war in this country right now. If we are not careful, what happened in 1967 may repeat itself because we have a governmnet that does not know how to go about bringing people together.
Eedris also hinted that Nnamdi Kanu’s long term plan may be to contest for a Senatorial seat come 2019,
‘Like I said, the way he’s going about it is wrong, people are getting killed everyday and that’s not good and we are still not sure if the referendum is asking for is for real because he could still go for Senate in 2019’ he said.
