Ohanaeze Ndigbo, a socio-cultural organization, has urged the Federal Government to produce imprisoned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu in court on Thursday, October 21.
According to the organization, a discussion was the best way to resolve the South East’s problem and young unrest.
Its National Publicity Secretary, Alex Ogbonnia, said Kanu’s presence in court was essential to demonstrate to the international world that a dubious legal procedure is not being considered while he is on trial.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo appeals to President Muhammadu Buhari to guarantee that our son, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, appears in court on Thursday, October 21, 2021.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo remains steadfast in proclaiming that the agitation and restiveness of the young in the South East of Nigeria are merely a response to, or a result of, the Federal Government’s engineered estrangement over the years.
“History demonstrates that it is very difficult to achieve peace in the face of injustice. We do not need to go further to understand that IPOB is just an expression of the Igbo collective emotions and plights throughout our torturous journey and an unquantifiable sacrifice for one Nigeria.”
