Hold S/East politicians responsible for Kanu’s detention – Ohanaeze

The Secretary General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, has urged the people of the South East and concerned Nigerians not to blame President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the continuous detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and instead HOLD South East governors, senators and other political actors from the region for allegedly campaigning against Kanu’s release.

Isiguzoro, in a statement issued on Sunday in Abakiliki, Ebonyi State, exonerated President Tinubu, stressing that the required assurances of security and cooperation from the South East leaders to facilitate Kanu’s release had not been provided.

He said, “Ohanaeze Ndigbo calls upon our fellow Igbo brethren and concerned Nigerians to direct their attention towards the South East governors rather than President Tinubu regarding the deteriorating security situation in the South East and the continuous detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. South East governors and certain Igbo leaders have not provided the essential assurances required to explore political solutions for Kanu’s release.”

He condemned the actions of some regional leaders, accusing them of exploiting Kanu’s detention for personal gains, political bargaining and maintaining political relevance, which he believed was aimed at prolonging Kanu’s imprisonment for selfish interests ahead of the 2027 elections.

Isiguzoro also called upon prominent Igbo personalities, including Chief Emeka Anyaoku, Pa Ebitu Ukiwe and Senator Ike Nwachukwu, to collaborate and provide the federal government with the necessary assurances regarding Kanu’s post-release conduct.
