A cross section of Igbo traders at the Alaba International Market have vowed to close the market to receive Nnamdi Kanu whenever he visits Lagos. They said they are gearing up to receive the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The traders who made this known while speaking with Sunday Telegraph said they were excited about the News. They promised to close the market to receive him. Some of them who wondered what he has done wrong apart from asking for his homeland maintained that Igbos are treated like second class citizens in Nigeria.
“I read it on Facebook on Saturday, we are waiting for him. We will close the market to receive him; he is the leader of our time. He will take Biafra to the Promised Land; we are happy that he is visiting. We heard that he has visited Port Harcourt, Ebonyi, Owerri and other places.”
“We are also expecting him here. All hail Biafra!”
Another respondent said he would he would welcome the IPOB leader insisting that he has not killed anyone.
“But what has Kanu done wrong? Did he commit any crime? Is he a member of Boko Haram or Fulani herdsmen? Did he carry any arm? All he is asking for is our own country where nobody will treat us as second class citizens. If the only reason why they want to kill him is for asking for our freedom, we will follow him.”
