Ohanaeze Ndigbo has called on Igbos to ignore the every Monday sit-at-home order issued by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), calling instead for an unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu.
A press release issued by Secretary-General, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro explained that the planned sit-at-home could cause avoidable economic hardship on the Igbos.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide had demanded that the Federal Government should release the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra to avert possible breakdown of law and order across the country. The continuous incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu will attract grave consequences on Nigeria and the Nigerian Government”.
He said that the sit-at-home declaration aimed at pressurizing the Nigerian authorities to release Nnamdi Kanu will destroy the backstage activities and efforts of Igbo leaders and politicians to use diplomatic means to get him released.
“There is hunger and hardship in Southeastern Nigeria, from sad experiences of past sit-at- homes, there were economic losses, destruction of properties, and hikes in prices of food and essential materials across Southeastern Nigeria, and Igbos painstakingly endured untold hardship and this must not continue”, the document stated.
Isiguzoro explained that Igbos should circumvent the hardships associated with sit-at-home and ignore it and go to their normal businesses on Monday.
“Ipob should review their stance and unveil more strategic planning with Southern Nigerian Governors and Legislators to press for the Nnamdi Kanu without hurting or subjecting the people to sorrow, affliction and despair”. (Daily Independent)
