Contrary to reports of a said apology tendered to President Buhari by Nnamdi Kanu, Vincent Obetta, Kanu’s lawyer has squashed all reports suggesting that Nnamdi Kanu had apologized to Mr President. [READ HERE] IPOB & MASSOB two fractions of the Biafra agitation has sent out word confidently saying that reports of an apology to President Buhari is a mere make believe.
MASSOB leader Uchenna Madu released a statement to that effect;
“The agitation for the actualization of Biafra has gained international prominence and sympathy even before Nnamdi Kanu‘s arrest and detention, and his current detention has further strengthened the agitation, so this latest move and campaign of calumny by enemies and oppressors of Biafrans is a sign that they are jittery, frustrated and are afraid of the fast rising and global acceptance of Biafrans struggle for actualization of state of Biafra.
“MASSOB and IPOB shall never be discouraged, frustrated, disorganized, dislocated or relent on the non-violent Biafran actualization because of this false statement credited to Nnamdi Kanu.
Mazi Kanu as a true Biafran can never compromise the integrity, confidence and trust of Biafra freedom fighters no matter the condition, subjection or oppression by DSS and Nigerian government.
“This Nigerian Government latest move to discredit IPOB and MASSOB has propelled us to redouble our efforts and strategies on Biafra agitation, we shall intensify our non-violence approach as MASSOB and IPOB march ahead for Biafra actualization.”
On the other end IPOB backed up the probability of a falsified apology;
“It is an insult to the entire Biafran Republic for anyone to expect any apology from Kanu over his activities towards facilitating Biafra‘s autonomy. The purported report that Kanu had apologised to Buhari over Biafra is not only a tissue of lies but a lame attempt by the enemies of Biafra to cause disaffection among the agitators.
“This latest trick is nothing but part of the grand design by the Federal Government to blackmail our leader and weaken the confidence of IPOB members in him.
“We are not surprised at this concocted trash because government is already intimidated by Kanu‘s rising popularity and following among the good people of Biafra. Kanu will rather prefer to die in detention than apologise to anybody over his efforts to actualize self-determination for the oppressed people of Biafra.”
