Igbo Youth were failed by Igbo Elite. And later some elite used them.

When IPOB's agitations for a separate nation started, they were not violent in any way. And yet, like the Shiites, Lekki protesters, they were still killed by the army. Let's not conveniently forget this part.
I do not agree with a lot of the utterances and actions of Nnamdi Kanu. However we must separate the dangeroys, unhinged and egocentric actions of a demagogue from the injustice that was done/and is still being done to a lot of Youth, whether they identify as IPOB or not. #Truth
