The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the leader of the Oduduwa Nation Movement, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho are Nigerians first before becoming any other country’s citizens, and they are not murderers, they should be released without further delay.
They are reformers, they are positive motivators and not murderers and deserves an accolade from the government.
These two individuals have enabled the disabled minds of Nigerians especially those in southern Nigeria to a point of self-actualisation.
Igbos and the Yorubas are aware right now that their marginalized region can be better off without the Nigeria union.
If the Buhari led Federal Government can pardon and reward Killer Bandits, Boko Haram Commandos, whose expertise is maiming and killing unarmed innocent Nigerians, then, Kanu and Sunday deserve Accolades.
The Hausa Ethnic Group must produce galvanizers like Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Ighoho in the North to wake up their docility.
Indeed, someone from the Northern Region needs to motivate the Almajiris and the youths in the region to liberate themselves from the wicked politicians that have caged them in the prison of self.
Nigerians have been clamouring for the proper restructuring of the country to avoid the Nigerian ship from sinking further, but that call is yet to be heeded.
In the words of Professor Chinua Achebe, “Things Fall Apart”, Everything is falling apart and the centre can no longer hold.
You will recall that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo described the arrest of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho in the Benin Republic as proof that the Nigerian Government has the capacity to end terrorism and banditry in the country if it wants to.
One of the factions of the group disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday through Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.
According to him, the “endless pampering of Boko Haram insurgents, bandits, and killer herdsmen is the route that will surely bring catastrophe to the North and will be a great threat to the corporate existence of the country.”
He noted that the arrests of “Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu signify that those who promote the consciousness of Nigerians are detained while the terrorists, bandits, and killer herdsmen are furnished with cover-ups by Northern leadership to destabilise the South for their heinous political purposes.”
He alleged that the government appeared to have got secessionist agitators –Nnamdi Kanu and Igboho –out of the way to pave the way for a sinister agenda to give murderous Fulani herdsmen and terrorist freedom to take over forests in Southern Nigeria.
“We, therefore, call for the unconditional release of the ‘Prisoners of Conscience’, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho, as there is no evidence on the ground of possible arrests of Northern terrorists and bandits who have abducted school children, maimed Southern Nigerian farmers, and murdered security agents.
“Nnamdi Kanu and Igboho are not murderers, they should be released without further delay,” the group said.
Some Igbo youths who will not want their identities disclosed said, “we are ready to defend our territorial and ancestral heritage and no Fulani Herdsmen or anyone else can take what is rightly ours”.
“We will resist such attempts with the last drop of our blood”,
Other reports we gathered revealed that IPOB members are also ready to show their solidarity at the court today in Abuja during the trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The question on many lips is can the federal government contain the crises brewing as a result of these arrests and detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Abuja? Is it proper to reward Killer herdsmen, bandits and notorious Boko Haram Commandos and punish innocent citizens whose crime is speaking against injustice by the government?
