Don’t Re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu, Ohaneze tells FG

Ohaneze, a pan Igbo socio-cultural group has advised the Federal Government of Nigeria not to re-arrest the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as it is currently planing to do.

The President of the socio-cultural group, Chief Nnia Nwodo in a public statement said that the reason the group was urging the government to rescind its decision to re-arrest the IPOB leader is to maintain peace and order adding that an attempt to re-arrest Kanu would overheat the polity and possibly drag the country into crisis.

The call came amidst plan by the Federal Government to re-arrest Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for allegedly flouting his bail conditions.

Chief Nwodo explained that although they have different opinions on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, re-arresting him would not be of any good rather it would create crisis.

On his part, Mr. Maxwell Okpara, one of Kanu’s lawyers, said that IPOB is not a violent organisation and that they would take their case for self determination which, by the way, is their fundamental human right, to the international court when the need arises.
