Popular Nollywood comic actor, Francis Odega has thrown his weight behind current agitation for the Republic of Biafra led by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and director of radio Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Odega, who rose to fame after a scene from movie series, Back From South Africa hit the internet, lauded the efforts of the IPOB leader, adding that ‘Nnamdi Kanu is not doing bad for himself’.
The actor who gave his support to the ‘Biafra struggle’ in an interview with an entertainment news platform, said the quit notice given to Igbos living in the northern part of Nigeria by the Arewa Youths coalition was enough reason for Igbos to create their own nation.
In his words, “I don’t think Nnamdi Kanu is doing bad for himself. Because when one look at it, how can some Northern youths say they don’t want us from their states, that means we are not welcomed. If one say leave the North, quit the North that means one don’t want us and the only thing for us to do is to have our own.
“If someone ask me not to come to his house again, what do I do? I look for my own house. I don’t have a reason to pretend about this, if Biafra want to come let it come,” the actor opined.
