Leadership of Indigenous People of Biafra [(POB) has denied reports suggesting that their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will be released from detention on the condition that he renounces his agitation for the actualization of Biafra Republic.
The group has also disassociated itself from any negotiations between MEND and the Federal Government, saying that their leader is not ready to negotiate his release conditionally or not from those holding him captive for no reason.
Spokesmen of the group, Mr. Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya in a statement said that they have never consented to any agreement nor did the group at anytime meet with MEND of the Federal Government on the fate of their leader.
â€œIt is understandable that MEND and the Federal Government 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 survivalâ€.
â€œMEND and the Federal Government can conveniently carry out their operation without dragging the name of IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu into that shenanigan, as we are not interested in their devilish actsâ€.
â€œIPOB and their leader Mazi Kanu are in full support of any group of dedicated and hardcore freedom fighters such as the Niger Delta Avengers [NDA], as we share the same aspiration which is the liberation of our peopleâ€.
â€œWe 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 that committed treason on December 31, 1983â€.
â€œWhat MEND and federal government must know is that Biafra is a spirit because Nnamdi Kanu, by the grace of God, brought spirituality into the agitation for Biafra independenceâ€.
â€œThe fact that many people claiming to be fighting for the interest of the people has sold out in the past or that the so called elites engaged in the mortgaging of their soul to the devil does not mean the emergence of clean, conscientious and patriotic Biafrans is no longer possibleâ€.
