Ohanaeze Ndigbo calls for Nnamdi Kanu’s release, alleges FG is terrorizing Igbo people

- Ohanaeze Ndigbo president John Nwodo claims FG is terrorizing the Igbo people

- He wonders why the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)

Nnamdi Kanu has not been release despite court ruling in his favour

- He says he doesn't understand the security threat that Nnamdi Kanu

poses that he will continue to be incarcerated

John Nnia Nwodo, the president-general of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has

alleged that the federal government is terrorising people of the South

East region.

Nwodo made the claim while reacting to the continuous detention of the

leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.

Speaking with Vanguard, Nwodo wondered why the federal government is

refusing to obey court orders to release Kanu while no member of

Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram is been made to face trial for

their activities.

He said: "This is a country operated by the rule of law. The whole

essence of the rule of law is separation of powers and independence of

the judiciary. When the executive does not respect the rulings of the

judiciary, we are in a state of anarchy. The courts have, two times,

asked for the release of Nnamdi Kanu. I don't know why he is still

being held. I don't understand the security threat that Nnamdi Kanu

poses that he will continue to be incarcerated.

"I know that Boko Haram is an armed organisation, which has invaded

Nigeria with reckless abandon; occupied territories, some of which

have been recovered; mounted flags that are not Nigerian flags; and

displaced local and traditional authorities.Some of them who were

captured have been released. Some of them escaped from detention. Can

you imagine a terrorist escaping from detention? Some of them claimed

to have renounced Boko Haram and one of them came back with a girl he

abducted and they were received in Aso Rock. I do not know of anyone

of them on trial in any of our courts today. What has Nnamdi Kanu done

in comparison?

"In the Niger-Delta, there are Avengers, who have blown up oil wells and pipes.

Government is going to negotiate with them.

There are all kinds of government policies and programmes aimed at

addressing their grievances and travails.

"But if it concerns the Igbo, they even concoct situations in order to

terrorise the Igbo. It took the Amnesty International to shout before

everybody began to take it seriously that 177 people were killed

summarily without trial just because they were demonstrating."

Thursday, April 6, reserved ruling on whether or not it will reverse

its order on witness protection in the ongoing trial of IPOB leader,

Nnamdi Kanu.
