Nnamdi Kanu has revealed that federal government offered him five south eastern states to make up the proposed Biafra state.
On Wednesday, July 19, Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) told the leaders of Igbo Civil Society Coalition led by Prof. Obasi Igwe when they paid him a solidarity visit at his Umuahia home, that while he was in detention, he was offered Imo, Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu state to form Biafra by the federal government, but he rejected it. Rather he insisted that he wanted a Biafra with Rivers and Benue States.
He said: “They gave me Biafra in Prison with only the five Igbo states; I said no, I want Benue and Rivers” “Biafra is coming, there is nothing to stop it”.
Nnamdi Kanu also said when he was in the prison, federal government offered him oil bloc and mansion in Dubai to drop his agitation but he declined saying he wanted only Biafra.
IPOB leader also lashed out Igbo leaders for being against Biafra saying they have no interest in Igbo masses.
According to the Nation reports, Some Niger Delta militant groups declared their support for the leader of the IPOB over his decision to boycott the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra state and they are unhappy over the May 30, 2016, when soldiers allegedly massacred harmless and innocent IPOB members.
