According to reports the governor stated this during a three-minute interview he granted BBC Igbo service, which was posted on YouTube on Wednesday, February 21.
He added: “He never consulted me before taking any action. It’s true that Igbos are being marginalised but how can we get to the promised land? Who will lead the Igbos to the promised land? Do we have enough guns if war should break out?”
The governor claimed that of all the tribes in Nigeria, the Igbos, more than any other, want Nigeria to stay united.
Kanu, who is wanted by the Nigerian government for alleged treason, has not been seen in public since September 2017.
