Nnamdi Kanu Might Be Released Soon – Ohanaeze
Ohanaeze Ndigbo has stated that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, might be released soon.
The group said that discussions with the federal government was ongoing and they were looking for a political solution to the situation.
GoldenNewsNg reports that Ohanaeze in conjunction with most Rev. Anthony Obinna, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe and Most Rev. Chibuzo Raphael Opoko revealed this in a statement.
The statement read in part: “This body, therefore, eagerly awaits the concrete steps that would be taken in this regard.
“The joint body is relieved that the State gubernatorial election was conducted without any major incidents or breach of the peace. It also commends the people of Anambra State, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the security forces, the National Peace Committee, and all the other actors who contributed to the successful conduct of the election.
“The joint body is highly disturbed by the persistent complaints by the IPOB legal team about the difficulties it encounters in dealing with the Department of State Services (DSS) and, especially, the sad events which occurred during Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s appearance in court last Wednesday, November 10. This body urges the court to affirm the fundamental rights of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, his lawyers, and other stakeholders. Failure to do so would lend weight to the suspicion in some quarters of a planned secret trial, as well as neutralise all the efforts being made to establish peace in the South East.
“The joint body acknowledges the roles played by various other Igbo organisations and groups in fostering peace in the South East zone and calls on all to sustain the current effort until true peace, based on justice and equity, is achieved in our land.”
