Leaders of the Indigenous People of Biafra dissociates the group from Kanu’s counsel’s statement.
The defence team’s sack is as a result of statements they made in regards to the IPBO and the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND).
“Following the press conference earlier today by our legal team, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Worldwide has been reliably and incontrovertibly informed that some of the utterances of their defence lawyers were made without consultation. These utterances border on negotiations and some were against the Niger Delta Avengers,” the statement reads.
“The press conference was NEVER about negotiations because should negotiations start, IPOB will notify the world about it. Right now, we are not negotiating and will not negotiate until existing court orders ordering the release of Nnamdi Kanu are obeyed.”
Kanu’s defence team earlier said the IPOB leader is willing to negotiate with the Federal Government to end Indigenous People of Biafra’s push for emancipation. And also denied the group had links with the MEND.
