Socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has called on the Federal Government to produce the detained leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in court on Thursday, October 21.
According to the group, dialogue was the best solution to ending the crisis and youth restiveness in the South East .
Its National Publicity Secretary, Alex Ogbonnia, in a statement, said Kanu’s appearance in court was necessary to prove to the global community that a shady judicial process is not contemplated while he is on trial.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that our son, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is produced in court on Thursday, October 21, 2021.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo stands on a firm wicket to proclaim that the agitation and youth restiveness in the South East of Nigeria is simply a reaction or an effect or the consequences of an orchestrated alienation by the Federal Government over the years.
“History shows that it is extremely difficult to have peace amidst injustice. Emphatically, we need not look elsewhere to know that IPOB is simply an exponent of the Igbo collective sentiments and predicaments in our tortuous journey and an unquantifiable sacrifice for one Nigeria.”
