WAR!!! As Olisa Agbakoba Replies Ex- President Obasanjo: Says“Nnamdi Kanu’s Demand For Referendum is Not a Call For War...


Agbakoba, who rejected the declaration by acting President Yemi Osinbajo that Nigeria’s sovereignty was not negotiable, said IPOB’s quest for self-determination was lawful and found justification in Article 1 (2) of the United Nations Charter and Article 20 (1) of the African Charter of Human and Peoples Rights, to which Nigeria was a signatory.
