The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, has reacted to a statement recenc recited to the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), about an ongoing negotiation for his contributional release from prison, if he renounces Biafra.
IPOB, in a statement, said: “For the avoidance of doubt, Nnamdi Kanu never consented to any agreement nor did he at any time meet with MEND and their “Achitophel Team (Not Aaron).”
It is understandable that MEND and their Ahithophel Team are scavenging for relevance from their moribund status but they should not use the sacred name of IPOB or its leader as a means of survival. .
MEND and their Ahithophel Team can conveniently carry out their “Operation Absalom (Not Moses)” without dragging the name of IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu into those shenanigans.
On the other hand, IPOB and their leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu are in full support of any group of dedicated and hardcore freedom fighters such as the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).
We have stated unequivocally and without any fear of contradiction that we are fully in support of the NDA as they embark on freeing themselves from the British criminality called Nigeria, a contraption led by a man who committed treason on December 31, 1983.
The restoration of the nation of Biafra is not subject to negotiation. If there should be any form of negotiation at all, it must be centered on asset sharing between Nigeria and Biafra and on the payment of reparations for money stolen from Biafrans by Nigeria through the 1970 twenty pounds deal and other subsequent acts of thievery by Nigeria against Biafrans.
We want to make it categorically clear that MEND and their Achitophel Team are strictly on their own and do not in any way, shape or form represent IPOB or the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. When we say “Biafra or Death”, we meant every syllable of that phrase.”
