Socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has alleged that two South-East governors, senators and Igbo leaders are working against the release of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The group said those identified want Kanu transferred to Kuje Prisons instead of being released due to the upcoming Anambra governorship elections.
In a statement by factional Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Ohanaeze threatened to expose the identities of the political leaders and groups if they continued their nefarious activities that impeded Kanu’s release on December 15, 2023.
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.
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.”
