The apex socio-cultural igbo group in Nigeria, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has expressed pride over the diplomatic engagements by their group under the able leadership of His Excellency, Ambassador Professor George Obiozor which has yielded a positive result as the Federal Government has through the Department of State Security bowed to the overwhelming demands of Ndigbo by producing the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Court.
The group made this known in a press statement made available to the press by Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, the National Publicity Secretary. Ogbonnia said; “This is one step forward in Ohanaeze’s determined moves towards ensuring that the Afara Ukwu Prince is set free in no distant time.
“The Monitoring Team of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide led by former governor of Anambra State, His Excellency, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Chief Nwosu, Ezeigbo 1 of Abuja, Barr. Goddy Uwazurike were also in court to monitor proceedings and report back to the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“We are unrelenting in our resolve to ensure that the FG toes the path of wisdom by conceding to the proposal for Dialogue and Alternative Dispute Resolution which will ensure the unconditional freedom of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and all members of IPOB detained across Nigeria”, he said.
Ogbonnia went on to commend Nigerians for their interest and solidarity demonstrated for the current Igbo travails, and further urged the youths to show restraints, prudence and maturity in their legitimate demands for equity, justice and fairness.
