Nnamdi Kanu’s kinsmen intend to send a delegation to the Federal Government to discuss his detention.
Chief Ikechukwu Ndubueze, the President General of the community, told reporters in Umuahia, the state capital, that while the Afara Ukwu people are sad about the development, they would choose dialogue.
The arrest of Nnamdi Kanu will not make the community feel good or okay; he is, after all, our son. At Afara Ukwu, heads of various government agencies in the state live peacefully together. From Nnamdi Kanu’s house to the official residence of the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Zone 9 is about three poles.
There are about three poles separating Nnamdi Kanu’s house from that of the Police Commissioner of Abia Command. In Abia, the quarters of the Controller of Immigration are about five poles away; the one of Prisons is about five poles away, and the Abia Government House is about ten poles away.
“Even the Federal High Court Judge, whose quarters are about four poles away from Nnamdi Kanu’s house, can attest to how peaceful the community is.” he said.
According to Ndubueze, the community will meet this weekend to discuss the modalities of the dialogue, adding that if that fails, the community will seek alternative legal means to free their son.
“As of right now, I am uncertain what will be the result of the meeting, but I do know that the community would like to find a peaceful solution to everything that is happening. The community will go for peaceful means, since they have always been peaceful, and they will not change now.”
