Nigeria’s Python Dance: Nnamdi Kanu Cancelled Dialogue With South East Governors
Nnamdi Kalu, who is the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has backed out of planned talks between the secessionist group and the South-East Governors Forum on yesterday, Wednesday. Nnamdi Kalu had earlier met with the governors at the Enugu State Government House on August 30, and they both agreed to hold further talks to seek an amicable resolution of issues raised by the pro-Biafra group.
Another meeting was scheduled to hold between Kanu and the governors on tomorrow, Friday, September 15, but, in a statement which the IPOB leader personally signed, which was made available to journalists, the IPOB leader said he would no longer continue with the talks.
Kalu blamed the cancellation on an alleged plot by soldiers to assassinate him while on his way to the meeting with the governors. He also said that he was currently treating injured part of his body and, of his followers, who had fallen victim to attacks by the military in the course of the ongoing ‘Operation Python Dance 2’, launched by the Nigerian Army in the South-East.
