Nkuko Ndigbo, a pan-Igbo socio-cultural group, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to dismiss all charges against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The organization criticized the government’s handling of the separatist leader’s trial, arguing that the issue required a political solution to defuse the heightened tensions in the southeast and throughout the country.
The appeal was made in a statement sent to media on Friday in Unuahia, Abia State’s capital, by the Publicity Secretary, Edomobi Promise.
It comes in the wake of Nnamdi Kanu’s arraignment before Justice Binta Murrala.
However, while reacting to the outcome of the proceedings, Nzuko Ndigbo further noted that the continued detention of Kanu is itself, a crime by the Federal Government
“The release and dropping of all charges against the Federal Government is causing more security challenges in the country”, the body stated.
Nzuko Ndigbo also decried the killings in the southeast and called on the culprits to halt the waste of human lives they did not create.
The organization also disclosed that it will soon organise a roundtable on insecurity in Igboland.
In another development, Mazi Chuks Ibegbu, the immediate past spokesman of the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has cautioned against rigging the November 6 Anambra gubernatorial election.
The Igbo chieftain, who spoke with journalists, on Thursday, warned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), political parties, security agents, and voters to play to the rules.
Ibegbu warned of the consequences of any attempt to rig the election, and therefore, insisted its Igbo turn to produce next Nigeria President in 2023.
