The latest breakaway group from the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, the Reformed Indigenous People of Biafra, RE-IPOB, on Thursday, expressed readiness to negotiate with the Federal Government.
This is the third group that broke away from the frontline group, IPOB.
A splinter group identified as the Rebranded Indigenous People of Biafra, TRIPOB, had yesterday, announced its breakaway, saying the struggle for the actualisation of Biafra was not feasible, adding that IPOB under it’s imprisoned leader, Nnamdi Kanu was not flexible.
In a statement by its spokesman, Ikemba Biafra, the third splinter group said it will only dialogue if the government was sincere in ending the protracted agitations for an independent state of Biafra.
According to RE-IPOB, it will not tolerate any insincerity from the government.
The statement reads, “If the federal government is sincere in its dialogue with RE-IPOB, then the Biafran flag can be exchanged with the Nigerian flag in the presence of President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Security Adviser, Director of State Security and the Elders of Biafra.
“If the dialogue is fruitful; then a peace treaty and a ‘no victor no vanquished tree’ will be planted at Gakem where the first shot of the Nigerian Civil war started and at Amichi Nnewi where the formal cessation of hostilities of the war began.”
