Maazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Nigerian separatist group – Indigeneous People of Biafra, asks Christians serving in the Nigerian army to resign.
Mr. Kanu’s reason is that the Nigerian military logo has an Arabic inscription that reads “Victory for Allah alone”.
“…But we have Christians in the Nigerian Army.
“Tonight I’m telling the Christians in the Nigerian Army to resign and go back to their regions and get ready to defend their land and people,” Mr. Kanu wrote during a live broadcast monitored by skygospelnews.tv on Sunday.
The motto – ‘Nasruminallah’ which means victory comes from Allah alone, was the motto written on the banner under which the Nigerian indigenous forces fought against the invading colonial forces. The motto was once that of Shehu Usman Dan Fodio, chief of the Sokoto Caliphate.
