Nnamdi Kanu has revealed that federal government offered him five south eastern states to make up the proposed Biafra state. The leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) made this comment when leaders of Igbo Civil Society Coalition led by Prof. Obasi Igwe paid him a solidarity visit at his Umuahia home.
Kanu who spoke on Wednesday, July 19 said while he was in detention, he was offered Imo, Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu state to form Biafra but he rejected it.
He instead 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”.
Kanu also lashed out Igbo leaders for being against Biafra saying they have no interest in Igbo masses.
The IPOB leader also claimed he was offered oil bloc and mansion in Dubai to drop his agitation but said he declined saying he wanted only Biafra.
