Ohanaeze Asks Malami To Advise Buhari To Release Nnamdi Kanu


On Monday, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo socio-cultural organization called Abubakar Malami, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, to advise President Muhammadu Buhari to free Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Ohanaeze made the request in reaction to Malami’s statement that the Federal Government had not received any requests for Kanu’s release.

In an interview with Newsmen, Ohanaeze Secretary-General Okechukwu Isiguzoro complained that Malami misled the president about Kanu’s release.

Malami Reveals Why FG Is Keeping Nnamdi Kanu Despite Court Order

Remember that Anambra State Governor Charles Soludo had petitioned the Federal Government to release Kanu to him.

Soludo had promised to serve as guarantee in order to secure Kanu’s release.

Since June 2021, the IPOB leader has been detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) on the orders of the Federal Government.

Despite a court order for his release, the Nigerian government has refused to release him.

Malami had previously stated that the Federal Government had not received a formal request for Kanu’s release.

However, Isiguzoro stated that Ohanaeze and some South East elder statesmen had visited with Buhari and urged Kanu’s release.

According to Isiguzoro: “Ohanaeze has put a formal request and paid a visit to the president which the Minister of Justice was present when the late Mbazulike Amaechi, Ezeife, Bishop Onuoha paid a visit to Buhari and requested that the best thing he can do for Ndigbo was to release Nnamdi Kanu to them.

“We want to tell Malami that the Federal Government through his department should stop playing the ostrich and come out boldly to tell us that they are not ready which they have shown in action but not in words.

“The body language of Mr President has shown that they are not ready to release Kanu having not obeyed the court order that granted his release. Malami should rightly advise the president to release Kanu.

“The body language of Malami has shown they have wrongly advised Mr President not to release Kanu based on reasons known to them. Such a situation of not obeying court order is aimed at instigating insecurity in the Southeast.”
