Igbo socio-political groups, Nzuko Ndigbo and the World Igbo Youth Council (WIYC), have lambasted the Arewa Youth Advisory Forum for warning against the demand by Igbo elders to release the detained leader of the indigenous people of the Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi. Kanu.
The northern group took the floor after a meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the Igbo elders led by Chief Mbazulike Amaechi.
DAILY POST reported that the chairman of the Arewa Youth Advisory Forum, AYCF, Yerima Shettima, claimed in an interview that leaving Kanu unpunished would be detrimental to Nigeria and the federal government.
Reacting, Nzuko Ndigbo and WIYC, in a statement signed jointly by their spokespersons, Edomobi Promise and Emenike Nwagbara, respectively, and made available to the DAILY POST on Tuesday, asked why Shettima, whom they accused of trying to destabilize Nigeria over the years and which should be behind bars by now, would send such a warning to the government.
Igbo socio-cultural groups have lamented that the federal government has yet to arrest Shettima despite his dangerous and confrontational comments and efforts to burn the country down in the past.
The organizations praised President Muhammadu Buhari for his decision to release Nnamdi Kanu, who was illegally kidnapped by government agents.
According to the groups, “this is the same man who gave notice to resign to the Igbos in the North a few years ago and almost tore the nation apart.”
The Nzuko Ndigbo and the World Igbo Youth Council further insisted on the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu and on an appropriate apology.
