Reacting to the BBC publication, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Calling him a Nigerian is the greatest insult of life, adding that no sensible person would wish to be associated with a country that tried to kill him.
He also accused BBC of not being objective in their coverage noting that only through proper investigation, like Al Jazeera English does, can BBC understand the real instigator of violence in Nigeria.
“How I wish BBC News Africa can be more objective in their coverage. I, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a Biafran, not a Nigerian. The demeaning characterization that I am a #Nigerian is the greatest insult of my life. No sensible person would wish to be associated with a country that tried to kill him.
“Truth is not hated speech. All we tried to do was raise legitimate concern and awareness against the senseless slaughter of innocent citizens across #Nigeria.
“What is stopping the mighty BBC News from filming an investigative documentary on the state of lawlessness across Nigeria to determine who the instigators of this violence are as Al Jazeera English usually does?
“BBC News is well aware of the fact that Nigerian government sent a battalion of soldiers to my house to kill me on September 14, 2017. I miraculously survived that assassination attempt unfortunately my father and mother did not.
“History will always vindicate the just.
