In a statement sent to POLITICS NIGERIA on Sunday, signed by its Secretary-general, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the group also called on the Nigerian government to give captures IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, medical attention.

It will be recalled that Kanu’s lawyer,  ifeanyi Ejiofor raised alarm over his client’s health alleging that he was ‘tortured’ and currently suffering from a heart ailment.

The statement by Ohanaeze read; “Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has alerted President Muhammadu Buhari of the consequences of denying the detained Ipob leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, access to health facilities and services through the doctor of his choice as one is presumed innocent until proven guilty of any Court.

“There are complaints about him(Nnamdi Kanu) of being denied access to medical care and attention, and such might attract empathy from the International community and might spur chaos as his adherents are threatening to storm Abuja when the trials of Nnamdi kanu resume on July 26th, 2021, which might portend danger at nation’s capital.”

“We commended FG through DSS for granting him access to his lawyer, such gestures should be extended to family members, especially his younger brothers and sisters should be allowed to visit him, and his fundamental human rights should be respected before his trials resume to assure the public nothing happens to him while in incarceration.”

“Ndigbo had remained calm and peaceful over the re-arrest of Nnamdi Kanu,” we extol Igbo youths that obeyed our earlier instructions to shun any form of protests and procession but urge those that were misled and regretted going into armed struggle to surrender immediately and be free”.

“We are ready to help any Igbo youth in the wrong niche of agitation to surrender willfully and be apologetic to beg Southeast Governors, it will motivate Ohanaeze Ndigbo to implore FG and southeast Governors to grant ” repentant agitators” amnesty and state clemency, this is the finest hour for those remorseful ipob members to surrender.”

  2. Is a pity that northern governors and senators come out to defend their own but easterners are afraid to talk. But Nigerians should understand is that general buhari said that Nigeria unity is no negotiable but he has already destroy it by dividing it housa and housa fulanis, east Vs North, Christian Vs Muslims, farmers Vs header’s but believe me Nigeria can never come together as one .
