Nnamdi Kanu: Ohanaeze hails governors’ intervention

The youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the main Igbo socio-cultural group, has praised the South-East Governors for intervening in Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case.

The IPOB head has been detained by the Department of State Services, or DSS, a circumstance that has heightened regional tensions.

Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, praised the governors for starting the process toward Kanu’s release from jail in a statement made available to reporters on Monday.

The development, according to Okwu, is a response to the group’s prior claim that Kanu’s freedom could only be guaranteed through a political solution.

“We have said it repeatedly that issues like this can never be resolved by throwing tantrums around or causing a situation of anarchy.

“This is not the first time Ndigbo are passing this route and it was only through a political solution that the matter was resolved. We know that this one will not be an exception.

“The National Assembly caucus has also before now started the same process and now that governors have joined them, we are upbeat that the process would be fastened and Kanu released as quickly as possible.

“We thank the governors in a very special way, as well as the religious and traditional leaders in Igboland for the role they are playing. In a similar manner, we also appreciate the members of the Ohanaeze Youths in the UK and Asia, and other diaspora communities for toeing the path of peace.

“At this point, the governors and the NASS members should meet Buhari and make the singular demand for the unconditional release of Kanu and other prisoners of conscience across the detention facilities in Igbo land,” he noted.

He, however, appealed for de-escalation of tension in the zone to allow the political leaders to focus on the work.

“The youths should cease all forms of hostilities going forward; we should allow our leaders the air of freedom to carry out this assignment. We have absolute faith in the ongoing political process. All those who demand to know the details of the process should hold their peace,” he added.
