The apex Igbo sociopolitical organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has alleged that two Southeast governors, senators, and Igbo leaders are working against the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Ohanaeze alleged that those identified want 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 nefarious activities that impeded Kanu’s release on December 15, 2023.
The factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said 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.
A statement by Isiguzoro reads partly: “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.”
