‘Does Britain think that Ndigbo are stupid and gullible to trade our freedom and that of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu with this  British Greek gift?’

By Valentine Amanze

The Mazi Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has rejected business partnership between Ndigbo and the British government initiated by the British High Commissioner, Dr. Richard Montgomery, during a meeting with the Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide in Enugu.

Describing the partnership proposal as a Greek Gift, IPOB wondered why the British government was not interested in the illegal detention of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is also a British citizen, by the Directorate of State Servicess (DSS) in Nigeria.

“It is obvious that the British government considers Ndigbo and all of Biafra to be stupid, ignorant, and gullible to have forgotten our history so quickly.

“We particularly cannot imagine their hypocrisy in the continuous illegal detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his extraordinary rendition from Kenya to Nigeria that is being swept under the rug while the British government pretends that “all is well”’, it stated.

In a statement issued by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, IPOB wondered how Nigeria had suddenly become so powerful to be feared by its colonial master, the British government.

 “Does Britain think that Ndigbo are stupid and gullible to trade our freedom and that of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu with this  British Greek gift? Therefore, IPOB and the entire Biafra Nation reject any partnership with the British government or her affiliates until Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is released and Biafra is restored as an Independent Sovereign Nation,” IPOB stated.

It further stated that if the British government was sincere in its quest for partnership with Ndigbo, the following demands should be met:

  1. They should ensure the unconditional and prompt release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by using their edge in diplomatic relationship with Nigeria.

2. Biafrans need British diplomatic support for the  restoration of the  Independent and Sovereign State of Biafra through a United Nations supervised referendum.

Recall that the British High Commissioner, Dr. Richard Montgomery, visited Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, recently, promising to partner with Ndigbo in business and development.
