The Igbo apex socio-cultural organization Ohanaeze Ndigbo has strongly condemned the clandestine activities of certain individuals and groups impeding the release of Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.
The group in a statement, cautioned those involved in the nefarious actions to desist or risk their identities being exposed.
The statement reads”Our Secretary General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, has expressed deep concern over the actions of these groups, which include some leaders of Biafra agitators.
“These individuals, driven by a desire for instant fame and personal gain, are tarnishing the noble cause of Biafra with unnecessary hysteria and violence. Additionally, political elites, including two Southeast Governors, senators, and Igbo leaders, are working behind the scenes to ensure that Mr. Kanu is only transferred to Kuje Prisons instead of being released outright. They cite the upcoming Anambra Guber elections as their justification.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo calls upon President Tinubu to intervene in this matter by dropping all charges against Mr. Nnamdi Kanu and facilitating his release. We firmly believe that justice and fairness should prevail, and that Mr. Kanu should be given the opportunity to contribute positively to the progress and development of our nation.
“We urge the clandestine individuals and groups to cease their obstructive activities immediately. Failure to do so will result in their identities being exposed to the public. Ohanaeze Ndigbo remains committed to protecting the interests of the Igbo people and ensuring a peaceful and just society for all.
