Biafra: I am Ready To Dialogue With Buhari-Nnamdi Kanu
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, has said
that his group, IPOB, is willing to negotiate with the Buhari's Federal
Government to end the agitation for self-governance.
Kanu made this known through his lawyers led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Amaobi
He said this while reacting to the government's decision on Thursday to
release some members of the group who were arrested in February.
He said they were not opposed to talks with the government.
“Nnamdi Kanu is not averse to political solution in resolving his present
politically orchestrated ordeal,” Mr. Ejiofor said.
“He welcomes genuine political solution to this case.
“Nnamdi Kanu has people of proven integrity and impeccable character that
will negotiate on his behalf, based on his demands when communication on
this effect is established.”
Recall that Mr. Kanu and two others, Benjamin Madubugwu and David
Nwawuisi, who have been in detention since October, 2015, are facing trial
for alleged treason.
However, on the claims that the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger
delta, MEND, was negotiating on behalf of Kanu and IPOB, the lawyer said:
“In the past few day, the media was awash with news on negotiation going
on between the Federal government and members of MEND, where our client's
name (Nnamdi Kanu) conspicuously featured.
“It is on that note that we wish to inform the general public that Nnamdi
Kanu has no connection, contact, ties or any kind of relationship with
members of the MEND.
“As such MEND has no implied, direct or express authority of Nnamdi Kanu
to represent him or IPOB in any purported negotiation going on between
MEND and the Federal Government.
“The general public is accordingly advised to ignore, discountenance and
disregard the falsehood been peddled by MEND,” said Mr. Ejiofor.
