Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari over the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu’s situation.
The Group in a statement by the National President, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike said:
“It is a source of worry that the Buhari-led presidency is foot-dragging in obeying the Appeal Court’s order on Nnamdi Kanu.”
“Recall that Igbo leaders, including the international community had at several times asked the President to apply a political solution to Kanu’s case but he said the court would decide on that.”
“Now that the court has ruled in Kanu’s favour, the supposed Chief law officer of the federation, Abubakar Malami is busy deceiving the government.”
“We ask Mr. President to show leadership; he should respect the rule of law; for the federal government of Nigeria to disobey valid orders of court is sending the wrong signal to the citizens and the international community.”
“The President should without hesitation order the DSS to comply with that order and free Kanu in order to ensure total peace and security in the South-East and the South-South.”
“I have listened carefully to the various appeals from the elders to the traditional leaders regarding a wide range of options, and as I have said previously this matter remains in the full purview of the courts where it will be properly adjudicated.”
For those who don’t know, Nnamdi Kanu was acquitted by the Court of Appeal recently.
However, Attorney-General of the Federation (AGN), Abubakar Malami has stated that Kanu will not be released anytime soon.
