Pro-Biafra Groups Deny Negotiations

Movement for Actualization for Sovereign State of Biafra and Indigenous People of Biafra have denied resolutions of the south est governors forum.

MASSOB has released the statement saying that it did not address the key reason for the protest – the continued custody of Nnamdi Kanu, the director of Radio Biafra.

Igbo leaders meeting ended in Enugu two days ago with the decision to set up a delegation of elders to meet President Muhammadu Buhari on the marginalisation of Igbo in Nigeria.

Rochas Okorocha, Imo state governor, who spoke to the newsmen on behalf of the participants after their meeting said a commission would be established to negotiate with the pro-Biafra supporters with a view to concluding the ongoing crisis.

However, Uchenna Madu, the national director of information of MASSOB, said the only way to end the protests is the unconditional release of their leader.

The statement reads in part: “MASSOB is not satisfied with all the meeting of Igbo leaders on Sunday because of no seriousness on the plight of Nnamdi Kanu.

“How can revered Igbo leaders waste a whole day in a marathon meeting without discussing our simple demand of Nnamdi Kanu’s release?

“Are they afraid of Northern oligarchy, western alliance with north or President Buhari? The governors, Ohaneze and other Igbo leaders have proved that they’re not representing the interest & demands of Ndigbo.

“They have shown their soft mind, inferiority complex and loyalty to our oppressors, we shall prove to Nigeria that the Igbo governors, national assembly members, other Igbo leaders are not truly in charge of affairs in Igboland.

“DSS is buying time for long incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu to impress Buhari and Northern political cabals that they can frustrate Biafra revolution.

“Long incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu by DSS will only motivate, inspire and increase the moral of Biafran agitators. How long shall they continue to detain an innocent man who already commands the massive respect of Ndigbo even in detention?

“MASSOB and IPOB members are not demonstrating or protesting against infrastructural decay in Igboland or non inclusion of Igbos in major political appointments but the release of our brother, Nnamdi Kanu, who represents the genuine desire of the people eastern region.

“Other demands and clamour of Ndigbo as a result of the current political tension are good but major one now is the release of Nnamdi Kanu.”
