There has been speculation that a second Biafra war is brewing following recent reports that the Director of Radio Biafra- Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, made moves to acquire weapons to wage a war against Nigeria.
According to Today.ng, an online media platform, Mazi Kanu solicited for arms and ammunition to make war against Nigeria at the 2015 World Igbo Congress In Los Angeles.
In addressing the Igbo congress, Kanu alleged that the Hausa-Fulani people have succeeded in planting Rochas Okorocha in Imo state, telling his people not to allow them take other parts of the south-south.
In a video, Kanu was seen giving a speech in support for the movement and his disregard for Nigeria.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, October 17, the Radio Biafra director was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS). This was disclosed in a statement published on the activists’ official website.
There are claims by Kanu’s lawyers, that the DSS refused the director’s release, despite having fulfilled his bail conditions.
Egechukwu Obetta, the Biafran activist’s lawyer, however, urged supporters of the course to remain calm and conduct themselves as law abiding citizens.
In the passing week, there have been various protests orchestrated by pro-Biafra activists across some south-eastern states.
One major cause of the protests is the alleged oppression and harassment of Biafra supporters by the Nigerian government.
In the light of this, the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), issued a stern warning to have governors from the Southeastern Nigeria.
The group warned that if the governors do not desist from collaborating with security agencies to harass members of the group, then they cannot be blamed for any reactions that follow.
