Speaking in an interview with journalists on Wednesday after a meeting of some south eastern leaders in Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State, Nnamdi Kanu said that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) will never engage in any act of violence.

Kanu, who is leading IPOB on agitations for secession and consequently, the sovereign state of Biafra, said Nigerians should not to be afraid of the internal operations of the group.

“There is no need for people to be afraid of the internal operations of the IPOB. We will never ever resort to armed violence or armed conflict of any sort,” he said.

“I will not do anything that will bring dishonour or shame to our people and if I do it, IPOB will never be violent, we will never be armed,” he added.

In a statement after the meeting, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe was quoted to have urged the agitators to avoid all forms of violence.

He added that the caucus would always support and work for a united Nigeria.

The senator called for total restructuring of the country and devolution of powers.

He said, “I thank Kanu for assuring (the caucus) to conduct his members in a peaceful manner and within the ambits of the law. This engagement is a continuous process that will lead us to find a lasting solution to whatever grievances that necessitated the agitations in Nigeria.

“The caucus will accordingly meet as soon as we resume from recess to continue the engagement for the good of our people and our dear country. All of us desire equality, equity, fairness in a peaceful and united Nigeria.”
