Kanu and two others have been in detention since October last year for alleged treason. Speaking through his counsels Ifeanyi Ejiofor and the Amoebi Nzelu yesterday August 12th, Kanu said he wasn’t opposed to negotiating with the Federal government.
“Nnamdi Kanu is not averse to 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”Ejiofor said
Ejiofor denounced any negotiation between the Federal government, IPOB and MEND.
“In the past few day, the media was awash with news on negotiation going on between the Federal government and members MEND, where our client’s name (Nnamdi Kanu) conspicuously featured.
It is on that note that we wish to inform the general public that Nnamdi Kanu has no connection, contact, ties or any kind of relationship with members of the MEND.
As such MEND has no implied, direct or express authority of Nnamdi Kanu to represent him or IPOB in any purported negotiation going on between MEND and the Federal Government. The general public is accordingly advised to ignore, discountenance and disregard the falsehood been peddled by MEND,” said Mr. Ejiofor.
