MEND berated over claims Kanu renounced IPOB

15 August 2016, 21:32

Lagos - The European branch of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has dismissed claims by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) the latter’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had renounced IPOB in exchange for his freedom.

IPOB Europe executive, Chika Edoziem, dismissed such claims, denouncing MEND as “a group of merchants whose stock in trade is to sell the birth right of the Biafran people in the mainland and the riverine areas for a pot of porridge.”

He expressed surprise at claims IPOB would “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.”

“IPOB is a movement propelled by a clear ideology and the quest for the restoration of the sovereignty of Biafran Nation,” said Edoziem.

He said it was “obvious” from the recent claim by MEND it had no clue of what IPOB under the leadership of “Kanu is all about.

“We are not a secret society. Transparency is our watchword we do not enter into secret agreements or negotiations with acclaimed criminals and enemies of the Biafran people.”

Kanu has been detained since late 2015 for "criminal conspiracy, intimidation and membership of an illegal organization.”

Government security agencies have defied court orders to release him.
