Finally the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has abandoned his violent struggle for the realisation of Biafra and called for a dialogue with the Federal Government to end the agitation.
The IPOB leader through his lawyers, Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Amoebi Nzelu, called for negotiation with the Federal Government to end the agitation for self-governance.
Kanu, said to have escaped to London by former Abia governor Orji Uzor Kalu was arrested and later granted bail for allegations of treasonable felony, maintaining unlawful society, illegal possession of items and many others.
The allegations against Nnamdi Kanu also include a plot by the IPOB leader and some persons now at large to cause crises that might force President Mohammed Buhari, to concede certain parts of Nigeria to a purported Biafra Nation.
Kanu’s lawyers while reacting to the Federal Government’s decision to release some members of the group it arrested in February, said they were not opposed to talks with the government.
Mr Ejiofor said, “Nnamdi Kanu is not averse to a political solution in resolving his present politically orchestrated ordeal.
“He welcomes genuine political solution to this case. Nnamdi Kanu has people of proven integrity and impeccable character that will negotiate on his behalf, based on his demands when communication on this effect is established.”
