Embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that he is willing to negotiate with the Federal Government to secure his release.
Kanu spoke through his lawyers, Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Amobi Nzelu, at a press briefing in Abuja on Friday.
According to PUNCH, he described his detention “politically motivated and orchestrated”.
The IPOB leader also denied working with the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND), and the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).
“Kanu will not renounce his ideology, IPOB is bigger than him. He cannot say yes or no to renouncing it. But he is opened to political resolutions of the problem. Nobody has approached him for negotiation where he is kept.
The issue of IPOB is beyond him, he is open to negotiation, we are not against discussion on this issue. A political solution will be easily achieved than legal solution, but Kanu must be released unconditionally,” Ejiofor said.
