According to the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu reached a secret agreement with it to renounce the agitation.

MEND also accused Kanu and his group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), of hypocrisy after they reneged on the agreement.

The Niger Delta group made the comment via a statement released by spokesman, Jomo Gbomo.

The statement reads:

"The attention of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has been drawn to the recent spate of hypocritical and provocative statements issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu."

"MEND hereby uses this opportunity to inform the entire world that following the group’s ongoing negotiations with the Federal Government, Nnamdi Kanu has made it clear that he is willing to renounce “Biafra” in secret; in exchange for his freedom.

"MEND and the Federal Government have, however, flatly rejected the IPOB/Kanu hypocrisy to remain defiant in public; while accepting to secretly renounce secession. MEND, therefore, urges the already frustrated and desperate Mr. Kanu and IPOB to swallow their pride and make a public denunciation of ‘Biafra.

"MEND also warned followers of Kanu and IPOB that the “so-called ‘Biafra Republic’ is merely a business venture and scam whose sole beneficiaries are Kanu, directors of IPOB and their families and cronies.”

IPOB had distanced itself from the supposed negotiation and said that Kanu would rather die than denounce Biafra.
