Northern Group Sends Message To Buhari Govt Over Nnamdi Kanu Release Request

The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has condemned repeated calls for the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).

According to news reports, CNG was reacting to recent requests for Kanu’s release by the Council of Elders of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Worldwide, and Anambra State Governor, Charles Soludo.

The CNG said in a statement issued late Sunday night by its spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, that further calls for the IPOB leader’s release will only lead to more unrest.

According to the organization, the Federal Government should not respond to such requests in order to prevent setting a hazardous precedent in the country.

The statement reads: “It is unpatriotic and unreasonable for leaders to openly shield IPOB and other authors of mindless violence and separatism who see it as their duty to actualise what their fathers started in 1966, namely to bring about the realisation of a separate State of Biafra through the force of arms and terrorist tactics.

“Today, everyone can see that the diabolical scheme planned and exhibited in the actions and clamours of IPOB, supported morally and politically by the vast majority of the plant and affrighted Igbo elite, politicians, traditional rulers, business persons, and the larger population of this ethnic group that has pushed Nigeria to the precipice.

“We are convinced that this renewed determined pressure from the Igbo leaders is part of a wider plot to see through the secession of the South-East from Nigeria. It is now real and cannot be avoided or deferred any longer without terrible consequences.

“As the representatives of various interest groups from Northern Nigeria, the CNG has watched and studied these events carefully and with considerable restraint and maturity, to the point of condoning and accommodating several unreasonable and unacceptable actions that have been perpetrated against Nigerians collectively, and Northerners in particular.

“Of late however, the calls for the unconditional release of Kanu have pushed matters to a point whereby silence has become complicity and inaction no longer an option with unprovoked evictions, attacks and killings of northerners in various parts of the South-east resulting from the hate campaigns and propaganda being conducted by regional and ethnic agitators solidly backed by their leaders.”
