The Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has asked the federal government to stop its persecution of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
This stance was disclosed by the group’s national publicity secretary, Uche Achi-Okpaga, while chatting with newsmen.
He opined that the federal government has no reason to go after IPOB which is a “non-violent and harmless group”.
Moreso, after the lack of a punishment or backlash for northern youths who threatened violence and even gave Igbos in the northern region a quit notice.
We see the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) boys as non-violent and harmless but it is unfortunate that they are being attacked by soldiers.
The security agencies should dare to arrest northern youths and nobody has arrested them. Nobody has arrested them and nobody has prosecuted them.
So, they are at liberty to issue what they want. We are no longer interested. It is between them and the security officers.
If the federal government has made any arrest, we are not aware of that.
The federal government keeps speaking against hate speeches everyday, but what is happening, you keep hearing it here and there and nobody is taking action against that.
The federal government has not done what it is supposed to do. It is just like what is said in law, justice is not only to be done, it should be seen to be done.
The activities of Nnamdi Kanu, is it wrong? What has Nnamdi Kanu done to the North? He has not been to the North, he is here with his peaceful protest. He is not blocking anybody from doing his business or has he stopped the federal government from transacting its business?
The government has shown too much lackadaisical attitude to the quit notice since nobody has been arrested. There are some people behind it..
