Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the main Igbo organisation, has denied sending delegates to meet with Abubakar Malami, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, about the case of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
Kanu escaped Nigeria in 2017 after being charged with treasonable crime. He was just captured and extradited to Nigeria.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo paid a visit to Malami to keep an eye on the case’s progress. This was revealed in a press statement issued by Jibrilu Gwandu, the minister’s media aide, on Monday, July 12th, 2021.
Ohanaeze’s attitude on Kanu’s detention, according to the statement, indicated their recognition of an unified Nigeria and the rule of law.
According to the press release, the organisation dissociated itself from Nnamdi Kanu’s and IPOB’s criminal activities. While channeling concerns and making demands, Ohanaeze stated that they “absolutely not advocate the use of any type of violence.” The organization also advised the youths to follow the law and avoid violence. They also urged Igbos to obtain voter registration cards so that they may participate in national progress.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s stand on IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu was praised by Malami. In Kanu’s case, he noted, the Federal Government will ensure that the rule of law is properly followed. He further stated that Nnamdi Kanu will receive sufficient justice in accordance with the law’s stipulations.
He also advised the organization to communicate the law’s viewpoint to their people in their native tongues.
Professor George Obiozor, the President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, stated the Ohanaeze led by him did not meet with Malami or any other representative of the Federal Government over Nnamdi Kanu’s issue. In a phone chat with The PUNCH on Monday evening, Obiozor said.
When asked if the Ohanaeze legal team met with the AGF, he responded, “Is there a legal team for Ohanaeze? That’s one I’m not sure about. We haven’t dispatched a legal team, therefore I’m not sure about that Ohanaeze legal team.”
Obiozor stated that the Ohanaeze’s legal team was only formed a few days ago. The team, on the other hand, has yet to meet with anyone. He went on to say that another group posing as Ohanaeze Ndigbo may have met the minister.
