The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has said that the 2023 presidential ambition of Asiwaju BolaTinubu made the 2020 EndSARS protests fail to produce a revolution.
Kanu made this remark during a special live broadcast recently.
Acccording to Kanu, the Yoruba media downplayed the EndSARS because they believe that it was an albatross to Tinubu’s ambition.
He alleged that the Hausa/Fulani’s goal is to cause disunity among the southerners.
He said, “The Yoruba are trying to protect their interests because they know, by 2023, there is every likelihood that they may rig Tinubu into office.
“I remember EndSARS very well. When you come out for a revolution, you must go to the end. When next you are planning to protest, go and study the history of revolution – Russian, French and the George Washington revolution in America. If you think a revolution is to come out on the streets, dance to musicians, no, it is not.
“When the revolution failed was when the Yoruba media allowed themselves to be used. They thought if Nigeria collapsed, Tinubu would not be president in 2023. They kept bringing in tribal, religion and other issues. Had we remained on the streets, forgetting about the palliatives, by now, the zoo would have collapsed.
“They (the Fulani) know that it becomes impossible to penetrate us. So for them to succeed, they have to bring a very clever plot. Unfortunately, the Yoruba media is in support and I have warned them repeatedly. I have warned my Yoruba friends that this double game you are playing will consume you.
“And today, they are in Yoruba land, killing and taking over their forests. If not for the bravery of the Eastern Security Network, I do not think that the Amotekun would have the courage to confront the Fulani herdsmen in their forests.”
