In an an interview with The reporter, Kanu claimed that no political or religious leader has been able pull the type of crowd that he does wherever he goes.
He said: “There is no visiting dignitary, Head of State, political or religious leader that has been able to command the type of crowd that come out anywhere I visit or any town I go to. It has never been replicated or set as a precedence ever before. If I were to visit Lagos, it will be the same, If were to go to Kano, it will be the same thing. People will come out to see me because I preach the truth.”
On the November Anambra governorship election, Kanu said: “I gave a speech in Aba, Abia State on Sunday and I made it absolutely clear that the boycott stays. We must boycott election in Anambra State. It is our civic responsibility to do so and that’s what we are going to do total and absolute boycott, to let the whole world understand the strength of IPOB on the ground, in Anambra State.”
He declared that Nigeria will burn if the federal government attempts to re-arrest him. Kanu who was reacting to moves by the government to re-arrest him for breaching his bail condition said he has not committed any offence or crime.
