Governors of Nigeria’s South Eastern states and the umbrella socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has been accused of suffering from willful amnesia.
A former spokesperson of President Bola Tinubu during the campaigns, Josef Onoh, said the leaders must admit the dangers posed by the activities of the defunct Indigenous People of Biafra in their region.
Dr. Onoh urged the Igbo leaders to engage with families of the victims who were casualties of violence allegedly carried out by IPOB before demanding for the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
Mr. Kanu is the leader of IPOB and has been in detention since he was arrested in Kenya in a yet to be clear circumstance.
Despite court orders for his release, the Department of State Services has kept him under their watch by frequent amendment of charges and court applications.
Dr. Onoh was reacting to different pleads to President Tinubu by Governors in the south east, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and others to release to the IPOB leader without any condition attached.
He noted that President Tinubu is a freedom fighter who engaged conventional methods to negotiate democracy in Nigeria and would not be less concerned in any freedom negotiation that upholds the tenants of the rule of law and engagement.
