The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has criticised the Nigerian Navy for moving its Institute to Kano State, instead of a State with a sea, Page 36 learnt.
The move by the Navy came following the increase in bandits attacks in the North-West region.
The Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Awwal Zubairu Gambo, had agreed to move the Desert Warfare Institute to Kano.
This was disclosed by Rear Admiral COR Ezekobe, the Chief of Policy and Plans, Nigerian Navy, when he led a Delegation to the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, at his office, in Kano, on Wednesday, to brief him about the development.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter page, Kanu wondered how the Navy, trained to combat enemies from the sea, would now end up in the desert.
According to the IPOB Leader, one of the worst calamities ever to befall any man, is to be born a Nigerian.
His exact words on Twitter: “TRUTH remains that one of the worst calamities ever to befall any man or beast, is to be born a #Nigerian.
“For 60 whole years, no stable electricity, no running water, cows roaming the streets, now NAVY in the desert.
“Indeed, ‘God punish you’ comes in different guises.#HellOnEarth.
“NIGERIA now ranks 3rd amongst nations most impacted by terror, behind only Afghanistan and Iraq.
