Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB seem not be letting down their oars in the war of words going between them and MEND.
Nnamdi Kanu said he will never renounce Biafra; neither in secret nor open.
Recall that MEND had said Kanu struck a deal with the government in secret to renounce Biafra and thereafter be released from prison.
Kanu flatly denied that assumption stating that he had never engaged in any form of negotiations with the Federal Government.
Kanu claimed that MEND has been converted to a willing ally of the government aimed at frustrating IPOB.
According to Kanu, “What has renouncing of Biafra got to do with discussions between Federal Government and MEND?
“Why is MEND interested in Biafra and Nnamdi Kanu’s release on the one hand and on the other hand assert that ‘Biafra Republic’ aims to annex the Niger Delta region as part of its territory?”
“Is MEND that poorly educated that they are unaware that the last Head of State of Biafra before the war ended in January is from the same Niger-Delta?”
“We hereby remind MEND that we are into Biafra restoration in order to free the enslaved people of Biafra.
“By extension, this will get to other parts of Nigeria that are under the hegemony of Hausa-Fulani domination.
“We are not into money-making venture.
“We are not ‘career freedom fighters’. We are constrained by time to get Biafra liberated from the British criminality called Nigeria.
“We advise all discerning people and lovers of freedom to discountenance any press release from MEND because they have officially taken the task of media and publicity arm a security agent.
“Nnamdi Kanu shall never ever renounce Biafra whether in secret or in the open.
“He and the entire IPOB stand strongly with the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).
“Together, we shall restore the nation of Biafra while MEND continues to operate as the official media and publicity arm of government.
