Release Nnamdi Kanu, others – Ohaneeze tells Buhari as he visits Ebonyi State.
The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Thursday, called on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to release the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and all Igbo youths in detention over the agitation for Biafra.
Ohanaeze President General, Ambassador George Obiozor, made the call in his opening address at the ongoing Imeobi of Ohanaeze meeting currently holding at the Ohanaeze National Secretariat in Enugu.
While expressing optimism that the Igbo nation would come out stronger from the current turmoil, Obiozor said that Ndigbo seeks healing, national unity, and progress on a platform of justice, equity, fairness and a sense of belonging in Nigeria which will start from the release of Igbo youths detained in various cells across the country without trial.
Reacting to the current security situation pervading the region, Ohanaeze PG said that each geo-political zone had its own peculiarity.
Commenting on the 2023 general election, Obiozor urged Igbos wherever they reside in Nigeria to make haste to acquire their Permanent Voter Cards.
