Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has finally reacted to the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.
The recent attacks were triggered after an alleged drug dealer allegedly killed a cab driver in the nation’s capital Pretoria.
Speculations that the alleged killer was a Nigerian had sparked off protests which ended up in the looting and burning of businesses owned by foreigners.
Three Nigerians were said to have lost their lives in the process while scores were reportedly injured.
Kanu had in a tweet on Tuesday, condemned the attacks even as he
restated his desire to see the successful exit of Biafra from Nigeria as
an independent state.
He also accused President Muhammadu Buhari of not saying anything about the attacks.
“I condemn in totality the xenophobic attacks in South Africa. Even as I seek #BiafraExit from Nigeria, I rise in defence of ALL victims of this shameful carnage, and I demand an immediate stop to it. As usual, The Jubril Cabal is silent, the victims belong to the hated 5%,” he said.
