The leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB),Nnamdi Kanu, will never renounce the group, his wife,Uchechi Okwu-Kanu has said.
Mrs Kanu made the comment on Wednesday, August 3, 2016, via a statement.
The statement reads in part:
“Anybody thinking that my husband will renounce Biafra is certifiably insane. This type of news as distressing as it is, is laughable because no group can postulate what my husband can or cannot do or say. This is not only an insult to our belief and of our rights as a people, perpetrated by dishonourable minds.
“It is now apparent that the charges against my husband are politically motivated and not a judicial process as President Buhari would have the world believe.
“This singular act of tyranny and injustice against my husband amongst others is reprehensible to every reasonable mind and is one of the critical reasons for the emergence of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) who have in their quest, consistently called for the release of my husband, which President Buhari has underplayed.
“Subsequently, Nnamdi Kanu should be present at any negotiations and I can refer President Buhari to F.W. de Klerk of South Africa on how to negotiate with a freedom fighter.”
IPOB had earlier also released a statement saying that its leader would rather die than renounce the Biafra agitation.
