Two S’East govs, senators working against Nnamdi Kanu’s release

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Accuses South East Politicians of Sabotaging Nnamdi Kanu's Freedom

The apex Igbo sociopolitical organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo says some influential and powerful politicians from the South East are sabotaging moves to get Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, released.

The group claimed that senators, Igbo leaders, and two governors in the Southeast were conspiring to thwart Kanu’s freedom.

The demand for the release of Nnamdi Kanu has been a focal point in the sociopolitical landscape, with various groups advocating for the rights of the IPOB leader. Kanu, who has been in detention, faces charges that have spurred a range of opinions and emotions across the nation. However, the recent revelation by Ohanaeze Ndigbo adds a new dimension to the narrative, suggesting internal divisions within the region regarding the fate of one of its prominent figures.

Understanding the motivations behind the alleged sabotage is crucial to unraveling this complex situation. While Ohanaeze did not explicitly state the reasons behind the actions of these politicians,

The group alleged that two Southeast governors, senators, and Igbo leaders were among those behind this heinous move.

Ohanaeze alleged that those identified wanted Kanu transferred to Kuje Prisons instead of being released due to the upcoming Anambra governorship elections.

The apex Igbo sociopolitical organisation threatened to expose the identities of these individuals and groups if they continued their hideous and diabolical activities that hindered Kanu’s release on December 15, 2023.

In light of these allegations, there is a growing call for transparency and accountability among South East politicians. The people, who look to their leaders for representation, demand clarity on the actions taken by their elected officials. Additionally, there is a need for open dialogue within the political landscape to address any underlying issues contributing to this alleged sabotage.

The groups allegations were contained in a statement by its factional secretary-general, Okechukwu Isiguzoro.

According to Isiguzoro, among these groups are some leaders of Biafra agitators who have resorted to criminalising the Biafra struggle through hysteria and violence, seeking quick fame and fortunes.

The statement reads in part: “Additionally, political elites, including two Southeast governors, senators, and Igbo leaders, are working behind the scenes to ensure that Nnamdi Kanu is only transferred to Kuje Prison instead of being released outright, citing the upcoming Anambra gubernatorial elections.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo passionately calls on President Tinubu to release Nnamdi Kanu by dropping all charges against him and allowing him to immediately return to the United Kingdom after his release.”
