It is either Biafra or death for Kanu- IPOB

In reaction to the recent statement credited to members of the Movement for Emancipation of Niger Delta, MEND, that a negotiation could be reached with the Federal Government to release the detained Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, if he renounced Biafra, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) stated that Kanu would rather die, than abandon the struggle.
In a press statement signed by its spokespersons, Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, the group asserted that IPOB is not in the business of betrayal.
The statement entitled: “Biafra or death”, added that if there should be any form of negotiation at all, it must be centred on asset sharing between Nigeria and Biafra and on the payment of reparations for money stolen from Biafrans by Nigeria through the 1970 twenty pounds deal and other subsequent acts of thievery by Nigeria against Biafrans.
The statement read: “We want to make it categorically clear that MEND and their Ahithophel Team are strictly on their own and do not in any way, shape or form represent IPOB or the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. When we say “Biafra or Death”, we meant every syllable of that phrase”.
“Again, we reiterate that Nnamdi Kanu is not Ralph Uwazuruike and IPOB is not MASSOB. Therefore, anybody thinking that our leader will renounce Biafra is certifiably mad. For both IPOB and their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, it is either we get Biafra or we die on the process of getting it. There is no middle ground.”
