Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), NnamdI Kanu, has accused South East governors and Ohanaeze Ndigbo of stopping the Federal Government’s dialogue with the group.
The IPOB leader said the federal government gave him conditional bail to cage him and the group, which he rejected.
Kanu made the accusations in a second broadcast, yesterday, after he resurfaced last week in Jerusalem, Israel.
In the speech, he said: “It is either Biafra or we die trying to get Biafra. It was Ohanaeze Ndigbo and South East governors who stopped the federal government’s dialogue with IPOB. For that, the ban on Ohanaeze Ndigbo stands till tomorrow. Anywhere or anytime Ohanaeze Ndigbo gather for anything in Biafra land, it should be disrupted.
“Being an IPOB member is a unique privilege. I don’t know if the United Kingdom is among my attackers; before I start, let me go to London first and find out. I’m not IPOB. I do the will of IPOB. The people are IPOB and IPOB is the people.
Kanu said he is the problem of the government in power and the solution to the problem is referendum to exit Nigeria.

“We are not going to vote because we’re too intelligent for that nonsense. I’m not interested in the politics of Biafrans, all I want for my people is freedom. We have been voting since 1953, what has came out of it, absolutely nothing.
“Southern Kaduna is under siege and you are campaigning for election. We have indigenous Igbo speaking people in Kogi, but, Ohanaeze does not care about their wellbeing. Arewa Consultative Forum, pressured Ohanaeze Ndigbo and South East governors to take me down.
“They invited and asked me to drop my quest for Biafra and I refused. I told them all we want is Biafra, and there is no going back. The South East governors and politicians, then, obliged Aso Rock to kill me. South East governors and Ohanaeze Ndigbo proscribed IPOB.
“There was Nimbo and other massacres in the South East, but, Igbo politicians kept mute.
“Shame to those who want to vote when the country is disobeying court orders. If any Igbo politician has ever given money to fund IPOB, let me not live till tomorrow. Where is your slogan of restructuring or no election, they have abandoned it,” Kanu stated.
