Newly formed Biafra group, the Reformed Indigenous People of Biafra (RE-IPOB) has said that Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is no longer allowed to speak for the movement.

The group also named a new leader and expressed a desire to negotiate with the Federal Government.

This was disclosed via a statement released by RE-IPOB spokesman, Ikemba Biafra.

The statement reads in part:

“We warn that RE-IPOB is not negotiating out of fear. Our position is not out of cowardice, we want peace. But the federal government should return our goodwill and readiness for talks with honesty and sincerity.”

“Nnamdi Kanu should henceforth desist from issuing any statement on behalf of Biafra in his own interest.”
