Following the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide, an Igbo sociocultural association, has called on the Federal Government to handle the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu with care as anything that leads to his death would destabilize Nigeria.
In a statement released by released by Okechukwu Isiguzoro, its Secretary-General, Ohaneze Ndigbo said;
” Nnamdi Kanu’s refusal to adhere to the advice of Igbo leaders, elders, and political leaders is the outcome of what had befallen him, he made a lot of enemies especially those that would have saved him and Federal Government will never lose grip on him again.
We don’t think that any Igbo leader will stick out his/her neck for him, his re-arrest will eventually bring peace and stability to the region and averted another civil war that was raging on.
Federal Government should handle the situation carefully because his large followers of IPOB wouldn’t resort to violent revolts, his trial should be strictly based on the laws of the land, they shouldn’t kill him because it will destabilise the entire country.”
