I will Rather Die in Prison than to succumb to the zoo's offer, Kalu Tells Nig. Govt

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has maintained that their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu can never consent to the alleged agreement reached between the Federal government and MEND over his purported release.

Last week, there was rumour making rounds that the Federal government and Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND), were negotiating for the release of the Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, from detention on the condition that he renounces Biafra.

In a press release signed by the spokespersons of IPOB, Barrister Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya,  IPOB  said, “For the avoidance of doubt, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu never consented to any agreement nor did he at anytime meet with MEND. Nothing can be further from the truth!!!

" It is understandable that MEND and their cohorts 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 Team can conveniently carry out their “Operation Absalom(Not Moses)” without dragging the name of IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu into that shenanigans.

“On the other hand, IPOB and their leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu are in full support of any group of dedicated 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 that committed treason on December 31, 1983”.

IPOB said the fact that many people claiming to be fighting for the interest of the people have sold out in the past or engaged in the mortgaging of their soul does not mean that the emergence of Biafra is no longer possible. A lot of people thought the agitation for Biafra was dead before the emergence of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB.

It further noted that things can never be the same after this, adding, ‘We assert that IPOB is not in the business of betrayal and we would die rather than renounce Biafra.
