According to Kanu, Biafra would distribute free oil to Ghana, Togo, Benin Republic, Ivory Coast, and the Gambia once they become an independent nation.
He claimed that the decision to become a sovereign nation was not because of oil or money.
The IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, made this known in a signed statement.
Kanu further asserts that the reason for Biafra’s secession from Nigeria was an agenda he took upon him and the need to free Africa out of poverty.
The statement reads: “Kanu equally promised to give free oil and gas to Ghana, Togo, Benin Republic, Ivory Coast, the Gambia and other countries in West Africa and Africa at large.
“This is to prove to them that the agitation for Biafra autonomy is not driven by the quest to control oil money. Rather our struggle for self rule is borne out of our desire to set the entire black race free from subjugation.
“Biafra wants to have neighbours that are free and peaceful so they can also benefit from our prosperity and enterprise.”
Kanu had earlier promised to grant political asylum to Christians in the North when Biafra secedes from Nigeria.
