Nnamdi Kanu can never betray Biafra- MASSOB tells MEND, FG

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) and the Federal Government, have received a lashing from pro-Biafra group, the Movement for the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, over a recent statement by MEND, that the Federal Government had agreed to release Nnamdi Kanu, if he gave up his agitations for Biafra. Both parties- MEND and the Federal Govt.-are currently engaged in a dialogue to end renewed bombing in the oil-rich Niger Delta, and MASSOB has described as laughable, their condition to free the detained Director of Radio Biafra.
As part of resolutions to end the Niger-Delta crisis, MEND had in a statement over the weekend through its spokesperson, Jomo Gbomo, said that it proposed to the Federal Government, “to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on the condition that he renounces the agitation of Biafra Republic.”
But in a statement released to newsmen in Enugu on Sunday, a leader of MASSOB, Uche Madu, frowned at the resolutions, insisting that the agitation for Biafra Republic was hinged on self determination which has become a spiritual movement that cannot be quenched by any force.
Madu stated: “The condition for Nnamdi Kanu’s release is a bluff by the Federal Government that knows nothing about genuine self determination.
“This condition is not only laughable but inconsequential. MASSOB does not see Mazi Nnamdi kanu  as one who can betray his belief on Biafra, he is not a sellout. His ideologies on Biafra may differ.
“He can never betray hundreds of Biafrans that died recently on the course of Biafra. “Biafra is not a religious faith that can be renounced or abandoned. Nobody can renounce Biafra. It is an identity, culture, tradition and existence of group of nationalities. It’s not personal or individualistic. There are thousands of Biafranistic persons more determined, consistent, dangerous, focused, unshakable than Nnamdi Kanu.
“It is childish for the Federal Government to expect Nnamdi Kanu to renounce Biafra which is the fate of over fifty million people. MASSOB advices President Buhari to save his battered Nigeria face from more diplomatic shame by allowing the court to grant Nnamdi Kanu and others bail.
“We shall continue to press for their release including the ultimate aim of Biafra actualization with non violence.
Nigeria will soon experience another dimension of non violence struggle that will marvel them.”
