There would be chaos if Nnamdi Kanu is killed – Ohaneze Ndigbo tells FG
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide, an Igbo sociocultural association, has made an appeal to the Federal government of Nigeria to handle the arrested leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, with care and consideration as his death at a time like this could lead to the destabilization and chaos in the nation.
Kanu who was arrested on Sunday, June 27, will be arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court Abuja today June 29.
Ohaneze Ndigbo in a statement released by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said Kanu’s refusal to listen to the advice of Igbo leaders’ led him to his present predicament. The group advised the Nigerian government to handle the IPOB leader’s case carefully in order to prevent violent revolts from his followers.
The statement reads
“Nnamdi Kanu’s refusal to adhere to the advice of Igbo leaders, elders, and political leaders is the outcome of what had befallen him, he made a lot of enemies especially those that would have saved him and Federal Government will never lose grip on him again.
We don’t think that any Igbo leader will stick out his/her neck for him, his re-arrest will eventually bring peace and stability to the region and averted another civil war that was raging on.
Federal Government should handle the situation carefully because his large followers of IPOB wouldn’t resort to violent revolts, his trial should be strictly based on the laws of the land, they shouldn’t kill him because it will destabilise the entire country.”
