Abuja - Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has said he would rather die in prison than allow the Igbo Socio cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo claim the glory for his freedom, reports Vanguard.
Kanu, who is on trial for treason and related charges, has been in detention since his arrest in October 2015.
The IPOB leader in a statement signed on his behalf by IPOB’s United Kingdom spokesmen, Dr Clifford Iroanya and Emma Mmezu, warned those who are claiming to be representing him and its group, including the members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and its youth wing to stop such move.

Kanu said nobody should speak or represent him and the group, unless such a person or persons are designated officers of IPOB worldwide.
