Biafra: Bishop Kukah Reveals How Politicians Caused Agitation For Nigeria’s Break Up
Kukah insisted that the agitation for Biafra was a direct result of corruption in Nigeria.
The clergyman stated this in an interview with journalists over the weekend in Abuja.
The clergyman also pointed out that the corruption in Nigeria was responsible for the formation of militant groups, Boko Haram and the likes.
Kukah said: “Before Biafra, there were Odua’ Peoples’ Congress and the Niger Delta Militants, all before Boko Haram and the Islamists.
“So, Biafra is a consequence of the corruption of the Nigerian state. These youth groups are expressions of the frustrations that face their generation.
“They are not the problems and they are not the ones on the dock: The accused is the Nigerian state!”
Groups like the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, have been in the forefront for the break-up of Nigeria.
These groups had anchored their agitation on the perceived marginalization of the Southeast in the areas of infrastructural and general developments.
