Free Nnamdi Kanu, meet leadership of IPOB – Ohanaeze tells Buhari

The apex Igbo socio-political organization,
Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has told President Muhammadu Buhari to consider a political remedy and set free Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

The Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, has said that the Nigerian leader should release and have a meeting with Kanu.

Isiguzoro said this in reaction to the letter of Kanu requesting a political remedy from Buhari.

Recall that the IPOB leader implored the president to free him from detention without any condition and withdraw all charges against him.

The Informant247 observes that the leader of IPOB is in detention (custody) of the Department of State Services, DSS, after he was re apprehended in June 2022.

The federal Government had ordered the repatriation of Kanu from Kenya in 2021.

Kanu has ever since been facing charges which border on terrorism and treasonable felony at the Federal High Court, Abuja, the country’s capital.

Isiguzoro said meeting of Buhari with Kanu would put an end to the sit-at-home order which has affecting the economy.

“Now that Nnamdi Kanu is the one writing Buhari himself seeking a political solution, I think the Federal Government, as a matter of national interest and security, should cash in on this opportunity and dialogue with Biafran agitators.

“According to the late MKO Abiola, nobody can give his head in his absence, nobody can have any form of dialogue with the Federal Government except Kanu.

“If the Federal Government sees it as a national interest of general importance, they should first grant presidential pardon to all those ready to dialogue with them, including Yoruba agitators and Northern agitators or those who pick up arms against the government.

“Regarding Kanu, Federal Government should grant his request from his lawyers that he should be released, his case should be discontinued, and the Federal Government should allow IPOB to have a one-on-one with Buhari.

“This would allow the Federal Government to have access to two vital ingredients that would help to stop the further sit-at-homes that have paralyzed the economic activities in the old Eastern region, comprising eleven states.

“And secondly, it will further stop the push for the disintegration of this country, Igbos are in all the local governments of this country, and it’s not in the majority interest of Igbos to leave Nigeria at the critical point in time because Igbos are the real Nigerians.

“So, the Igbos, as a matter of urgency, should grant Kanu’s request through the letter he wrote to Buhari, and Kanu is the best person to make this request to the Federal Government.

“Now, he has accepted and is remorseful and is ready to speak with the Federal Government. They should not allow this opportunity to pass by; the best political solution is to release Nnamdi Kanu and release about 400 people incarcerated in prison facilities across the country.

“By so doing, Buhari would save Nigeria from further hurt, referendum, and disintegration of Nigeria.”
