Nollywood actor Francis Odega has openly declared his support for Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Odega who is popular for the slang ‘Gerara here‘ said his support was triggered by the undue disregard the north has given his brothers.
According to Odega, since the northerners have decided to cut them out of their region, he is in support of his people forming an Igbo nation.
Speaking with Celeb Police, Odega added that the October 1 ultimatum by the Northerners was a declaration that the Southeast people are not wanted.
He said: “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 (Igbos) from their states?
“That means we are not welcomed. If one say ‘leave the North, quit the North’ that means such persons 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 wants to come let it come,” he said.
