IGBO LEADERS BETRAYS IPOB, NEGOTIATES NNAMDI KANU’S RELEASE WITH BUHARI – WHAT THEY AGREED TO DO WILL SHOCK YOU

Igbo leaders have begged President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu and other persons it described as prisoners of conscience. Kanu and other pro-Biafra agitators were arrested and have been in detention at Kuje prison since 2015.

Daily Post reports that the Igbo leaders reiterated their commitment to one at the World Igbo Summit Group in collaboration with the Igbo Renaissance Centre of the Gregory University, Uturu with Sen. Ike Nwachukwu as the chairman. The group released a 10-point communiqué calling for the release of Kanu and other detainees “since they do not constitute a threat to national security.”

It said the Igbo nation was ready to work for a united Nigeria where “Ndigbo would live and operate as equal citizens, without any discrimination, bias or intimidation.” Chief Sam Ohuabunwa who is the co-chairman noted that “Ndigbo have made the biggest sacrifice and contributions to the building of a modern Nigeria.”

He called on states and the federal government to enact legislation that will outlaw nomadic cattle grazing in the country. It specifically voted “against all forms of open grazing in Igboland” as the activities of suspected herdsmen pose great danger to peace and security in the area.

Meanwhile, the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) lashed out at Igbo elders for associating with its planed All Igbo Summit in Uturu Abia State. Vanguard reports that in a statement signed by Mr. Emma Powerful who is the media aide of the pro-Biafra group, it said it was not in support of the summit and insulted the elders who it said are only concerned about what they can get from Abuja.

IPOB insisted that Nnamdi Kanu was its only recognised leader and that the quest for Biafra was its only focus. The group said: “The group of so-called Igbo leaders, who are going about brandishing the noble name of our great IPOB, in their emails to people for their fraudulent and Aso rock-sponsored All Igbo Summit, are hereby warned to desist forthwith from including IPO’s name in their emails.”
