Igbo Not Silent On Nnamdi Kanu – Ohanaeze Lambast Critics


Alex Ogbonnia, the National Publicity Secretary of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has stated that the Igbo are not silent on the issues concerning Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra.


According to a report reviewed on Saturday, PUNCH by iexclusive News Nigeria that the Igbo have been meeting over the subject of the IPOB leader, albeit they have not made their deliberations public.


The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, had formed a 28-member committee comprised of prominent South-West personalities to investigate the arrest of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, and other South-West-related matters.


Some critics, however, lambasted the south-easterners for supposedly failing to unite in their battle for Kanu’s release.


In response to the criticism, the Ohanaeze spokesperson stated that it was not a truth that the Igbo were not unified.


“The Igbo are meeting, it’s just that we aren’t publicizing it,” he explained.


We meet and agree on the next measures to take.


The Igbo elders convened and instructed Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe to act as a guarantor for Nnamdi Kanu when he required one.


“When his trial began, the Ohanaeze also provided him with legal services. To ensure Nnamdi Kanu’s fair trial, we formed a legal team led by Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide’s National Legal Adviser and notable Igbo leaders to monitor the legal procedures throughout the trial.”


Ogbonnia stated that the South-East elders would never abandon Kanu as an orphan and that they were meeting to make decisions on the situation.


He stated, “We are not silent on Nnamdi Kanu’s concerns; we have been meeting.” We are not quiet because Ohaeneze and other Igbo elders have met.


“We are a people who stand together. The Igbo are one of the world’s most cohesive tribes. I don’t want anyone to misinterpret the Igbos’ view on Nnamdi Kanu. We have been holding talks to ensure that Nnamdi Kanu is not left orphaned. We don’t want it to appear that we abandoned Nnamdi Kanu. We’ve been meeting to discuss possible solutions to the problem.”


Kanu, who is charged with treason, treasonable crime, terrorism, and illegal possession of firearms, among other things, jumped bail in 2017 and fled the country.
