What I Encountered On My Way To Israel In 2017~Kanu

The leader of The Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB), MAZI NNAMDI KANU has narrated his ordeal when he was travelling to THE STATE OF ISRAEL in 2017 following the invasion of his hometown at AFARA UKWU IBEKU, ABIA STATE. Kanu explained that he spent nearly one year on his journey to ISRAEL due to the corrupt nature of some AFRICAN country, who could probably arrest him and bring him back to NIGERIA.

“From Benin I travelled by road to Senegal, a distance of nearly 2,000 kilometres.
Once in Senegal, I was able to make arrangements to travel to Israel. None of these journeys was easy. I was still in pain and the threat from Nigerian agents abroad never went away. When we stopped to rest on the road, I couldn’t go out. My world was shrunk to a room with a window, and sometimes not even that. I might as well have been in prison.
Benin, Togo, Ghana, Ivory Coast, all the countries I had to pass through rely economically on Nigeria, their governments corrupt enough to arrest me and send me back. I had to stay silent, unknown. I couldn’t even tell my wife or family where I was, just in case they became targets. I later realized that they didn’t know if I was dead or alive. Israel was a heaven for me, but it took over a year to get there, and only then did I feel confident enough to let my fellow IPOB family members and immediate family know I was safe.
