Leadership of pro-Biafra group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has come down had on the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta, MEND, describing it as a stooge and a propaganda machine, for President Buhari and the DSS.
Reacting to the recent stance of MEND leadership on the actualisation of Biafra and the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the Director of Radio Biafra, IPOB, distances itself from MEND, especially on the allegation that Kanu is willing to renounce Biafra.
A statement jointly signed by IPOB spokesmen, Barr. Emma Mmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya respectively, frowned at overtures being made by MEND to secure conditional release for IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu when nobody asked them to negotiate on behalf of IPOB or Kanu.
“The Indigenous People of Biafra can confirm that the moribund terrorist organisation known as Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta, MEND, has been captured by Retired Major General Muhammadu Buhari and converted to the official media and publicity arm of Nigeria’s Department of State Services. Because of this latest conversion, the rogue organisation is now popularly called Movement for the Enslavement of Niger Delta, M.E.N.D.
“We also have intelligence information that as part of the deal accompanying the conversion, M.E.N.D. or should we say the ever suicidal and mentally imbalanced Charles Okah was promised early release from prison where he is currently being held for his role as the infamous Gbomo Jomo of the tragic terrorist bombing of 1 October 2011 at Eagle Square Abuja.
“This schizophrenic Charles Okah or Gbomo Jomo who, as a matter of public record, has attempted to kill himself twice, in his new role as the M.E.N.D leader that only exists on the Internet, was given a paltry One Million Naira by the DSS to provide information on the whereabouts of Niger Delta Avengers. It is necessary to state for record purposes that any person or persons so far arrested by the Nigerian Army or DSS in connection with the activities of militancy in the Niger Delta area is based on information provided by this unstable Charles Okah and should hold M.E.N.D responsible.
“Following this promise of early release from prison, M.E.N.D. was required to issue a series of fake press statements intended to drive a wedge between IPOB and the Niger Delta Avengers, N.D.A. both of whom have since closed ranks in total pursuit of the restoration of the nation of Biafra.
“The initial attempt by M.E.N.D. to execute their own part of the deal on fake press releases failed woefully even with the backing of Nigeria’s journalists typified by the APC financed Sharia Reporters. Hence they changed tactics with the recent press release in which they lied that the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has agreed in secret to renounce Biafra in order to be released. Even if we foolishly accept their assertion, does that not indict Buhari and the Judiciary and prove IPOB right that Nigerian Judiciary is compromised and the case against Nnamdi Kanu lacks merit?,” the organisation alleges.
