A pan-Igbo socio-cultural organization, Nzuko Ndigbo, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari need not to be pleaded with to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS).
WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that Buhari had disclosed that he will consider the release of Kanu after traditional and religious leaders in the south-east asked him to grant amnesty to the IPOB leader to deescalate tension in the zone.
Buhari made the remark during a meeting with some Southeast leaders under the aegis of Highly Respected Igbo Greats, led by First Republic parliamentarian and Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi at the State House, Abuja.
Amaechi pleaded with the president to release Kanu, rather than opt for military actions.
Recall that the breakaway agitator, Kanu is facing treasonable felony charges preferred against him by the federal government of Nigeria before Justice Binta Murtala Nyako-led Federal High Court in Abuja.
Reacting, in a statement by its Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Edomobi Promise, noted that the President is not doing any favour to Ndigbo by the promise but doing what he is supposed to do.
The group maintained that there was no reason at all for arresting the IPOB leader in a gestapo manner and demanded for the trial of all those that abducted him from Kenya.
The Nzuko Ndigbo advised against people visiting President Buhari on behalf of Ndigbo without discussing with anybody.
According to the Nzuko Ndigbo, “Let Buhari release and apologize to Nnamdi Kanu for unlawful kidnapping by the federal government”.
