The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has claimed that Nigeria started as a business enterprise.
The pro-Biafra activist made this known in a post on his Twitter handle on Sunday.
He wondered how the Royal Niger Company ended up becoming the Republic of Nigeria.
Nnamdi Kanu wrote: “Can anybody name any civilised nation that started life as a business enterprise.
“How come a company formed in 1897 named ‘United African company’ & later changed to ‘Royal Niger Company’ ended up becoming a Republic of Nigeria? “Do you see why Nigerianists are all mental cases.”
