See What Ohaneze Ndigbo Wants Buhari Do To Restore Peace In South East

The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has on Thursday, May 05, 2022 appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to release the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and all Igbo youths in detention over the agitation for Biafra.

The President General of the group, Chief George Obiozor, made the appeal during Imeobi of Ohanaeze meeting held at the National Secretariat, Enugu.

George Obiozor noted the release of Nnamdi Kanu would restore peace in the South East, saying the region was once known for peace and unity.

He said: “Ndigbo needs peace, national unity, and progress on a platform of justice, equity, fairness and a sense of belonging in Nigeria.

“The release of Igbo youths detained in various cells across the country without trial will bring peace and national unity to Nigeria. The beginning of insecurity in the South East is both bizarre and dramatic.

“The South East was the most peaceful zone in Nigeria until April 5, 2021, when gunmen attacked the correctional facility in Owerri, Imo State and freed a total of 1,844 prison inmates.

“Since the April 5 episode, insecurity in the South East has attained an unprecedented unbearable crescendo.

“In this connection, I call on the Association of South East Town Unions, traditional rulers, the leadership of Ndigbo in Diaspora, religious bodies, market associations and all other groups to take this message very seriously. It is a task that must be undertaken,” he said.

The meeting was attended by Chief Mbazuluike Amaechi, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Chief Nnia Nwodo, Sen. Chris Anyanwu, Chief Enwo Igariwey, and Sen. Victor Umeh, among others.
