You won’t believe this.
The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) known as Nnamdi Kanu, has reportedly called for a dialogue with President Buhari in a bid to end the agitation for the creation of Biafra. Although Nnamdi Kanu is missing, the news according to PM news has it that Kanu through his lawyers, Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Amoebi Nzelu, has called for negotiation with the Federal Government to end the agitation for self-governance and live to One-Nigeria.

Kanu’s lawyers, Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Amoebi Nzelu reacting to the Federal Government’s decision to release some members of the group it arrested in February, said they were not opposed in talks with the government. Speaking to newsmen in Abia state, Ejiofor said read belwo.

“Nnamdi Kanu is not averse to a political solution in resolving his present politically orchestrated ordeal. He welcomes genuine political solution to this case. Nnamdi Kanu has people of proven integrity and impeccable character that will negotiate on his behalf, based on his demands when communication on this effect is established.”

However, on the claims that the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, was negotiating on behalf of Kanu and IPOB, the lawyer said, “In the past few day, the media was awash with news on negotiation going on between the Federal government and members of MEND, where our client’s name (Nnamdi Kanu) conspicuously featured. It is on that note that we wish to inform the general public that Nnamdi Kanu has no connection, contact, ties or any kind of relationship with members of the MEND. As such MEND has no implied, direct or express authority of Nnamdi Kanu to represent him or IPOB in any purported negotiation going on between MEND and the Government. The general public is accordingly advised to ignore, discountenance and disregard the falsehood been peddled by MEND.”

Jiang, sold the one-year-old to a couple after owing more than 60,000 Yuan (£6,798), according to reports in China.

Jiang told his wife that he was taking their daughter to stay with his mother. He flew the child more than 1,150 miles away from their home in Guiyang, Guizhou province, last November.

Wang, his wife grew concerned after his failure to return three months later but repeatedly postponed their return.

In February, 2019, she checked her husband’s phone and found shocking conversations between her husband and her daughter’s buyers.

Wang went to her husband’s mother in Zunyi city, about 87 miles away, who informed her that her son and granddaughter left her weeks ago.

She immediately contacted police and they tracked Jiang down to a hotel in Guiyang last month.

When he was caught, Jiang admitted to owing a huge gambling debt and decided to take the drastic measure after seeing online adverts for child adoption.
