The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has asked the federal government to provide its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, as part of preconditions for reconciliation between it and the Nigerian government.
The group met Wednesday with a delegation of Igbo leaders in Enugu in continuation of their deliberation on peaceful reconciliation between them and the federal government as well as governments of the South-east zone.
Kanu is wanted by the Nigerian government for alleged treason. He has not been seen in public since September 2017 when the army raided his residence in Abia state.
The army denies knowing his whereabouts.
They further restated the demand for punishment of those who killed members of the group during the military exercise last year.
Kanu has been at the vanguard of the call for an independent Biafra Republic from the Nigerian state through referendum.
Kanu, who is facing charges of treasonable felony at the Federal High Court in Abuja, had called for a boycott of elections in Anambra last November if government failed to set a date for referendum. The call for boycott failed.
