IPOB remames MEND

16 August 2016, 14:14

Delta - The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has rechristened the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, as the Movement for the Enslavement of the Niger Delta.

The group stressed that the movement is living in denial of the purpose for which it was formed and has no idea of what freedom fighting is all about.

In a statement signed on Monday by Chika Edoziem of its Europe branch, the pro-Biafra group described MEND as a group of merchants whose stock in trade is to sell the birthright of the Biafran people in the mainland and the riverine areas for a pot of porridge.

Asserting that MEND has no inkling of what honor entails, the statement held that the Nnamdi Kanu-led group is propelled by a clear ideology and the quest for the restoration of the sovereignty of Biafra nation, adding that it cannot be compromised nor watered down in any form or shape.

IPOB added that it cannot give up its for the so called freedom for its detained members, including Nnamdi Kanu, as proposed by MEND.

The statement reads, “This movement (MEND) is back to what it does best having obviously exhausted the blood money they made through kidnappings, murder and accepting amnesty from their slave masters for the crimes they committed against Biafran people.

“Wonders shall never end. How can the Movement For The Enslavement Of The Niger Delta ever imagine that the Indigenous People of Biafra led by “Onyendu” Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will throw its honor to the dogs by allowing itself and its honorable objective of securing the freedom of the Biafran people be tainted by group of murderers and self acclaimed criminals?

“The indigenous people of Biafra IPOB under the leadership of “Onyendu” Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a movement propelled by a clear ideology and the quest for the restoration of the sovereignty of Biafran Nation cannot I repeat cannot be compromised, cannot be watered down in any form or shape and cannot be exchanged by your so called “freedom”.

News24 previously reported the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, had on Sunday alleged that the President, Muhammadu Buhari has sinister plans for its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, which ultimately involves the loss of his life.

In a statement issued by the group’s spokesperson, Emma Nmezu and Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya, the group further declared its admiration and connection to the notorious Niger Delta Avengers militant group.
