The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, has lambasted Nnamdi Kanu.
MEND had claimed they were negotiating with the FG to cease all hostilities in the Niger delta region.
In that claim, MEND gave conditions upon which they’d embrace peace.
Among their many demands was the condional release of Nnamdi Kanu.
According to MEND, the conditions was for Kanu to renounce IPOB, disband his group and embrace peace.
Kanu’s lawyers replied.
In their response, Kanu’s lawyers accepted the offer saying their client asked them to do so.
An infuriated IPOB fired Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers stating that Nnamdi Kanu never granted such wishes.
Kanu and IPOB also lambasted MEND stating that they have no relationship whatsoever with MEND and that they align with Avengers’ ideology.
MEND has responded to IPOB and Kanu’s open rebuke.
According to Jomo Gbomo, “The attention of the MEND has been drawn to the recent spate of hypocritical and provocative statements issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
“They have purportedly dissociated IPOB/Kanu from some of the concessions, which have so far been secured by MEND in the ongoing talks aimed at resolving the current Niger Delta crisis between the Federal Government and MEND.
“MEND hereby uses this opportunity to inform the entire world that following the group’s ongoing negotiations with the Federal Government, Nnamdi Kanu has made it clear that he is willing to renounce “Biafra” in secret; in exchange for his freedom.
“MEND and the Federal Government have, however, flatly rejected the IPOB/Kanu hypocrisy to remain defiant in public; while accepting to secretly renounce secession.
“MEND urges the already frustrated and desperate Mr. Kanu and IPOB to swallow their pride and make a public denunciation of ‘Biafra.’
“The so-called ‘Biafra Republic’ is merely a business venture.
“It is scam whose sole beneficiaries are Kanu, directors of IPOB, their families and cronies,” the statement read.
