Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, in reaction to CDS General Musa’s comments over the Southeast insecurity challenges, believes that the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained IPOB leader, would be the best Christmas gift that President Bola Tinubu could give to the Southeast ahead of December and January festivals. This act of clemency would not only make the Chief of Defense Staff, General Christopher Musa, work easier, but it would also render Simon Ekpa inconsequential and irrelevant. Furthermore, it would bring an end to the artificial security challenges created in the Southeast by criminals using Nnamdi Kanu as an excuse.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo urges President Tinubu, as a respected political Father of the nation, to consider the plights and predicaments of the Southeasterners and release Nnamdi Kanu in time for them to enjoy their Christmas and New Year festivals in a serene environment and peaceful atmosphere. If peace is restored in the Southeast through the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the services of the Chief of Defense Staff and Security Chiefs to maintain peace will no longer be necessary in the region.

It is disheartening to note that the people of the Southeast have suffered unjustly at the hands of Fulani herdsmen and criminals who have exploited the Biafra struggle to terrorize the region. Ohanaeze Ndigbo is shocked that the Chief of Defense Staff and Security Chiefs have not investigated or spoken out about the discovery of over 70 persons brutally murdered by herdsmen operating from the Lokpanta Cattle Market in Leru Umunneochi, Abia State.

The sources of insecurity challenges in the Southeast are primarily the activities of Fulani herdsmen and criminals who use the name of the Biafra agitation as a cover. The Southeast region has lost over 42 trillion naira since the incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu and the criminal invasions of Fulani herdsmen during the Buhari administration. Ohanaeze Ndigbo calls on Tinubu to address the shortcomings of the past administration that have led to the current insecurity challenges in the Southeast.

Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Secretary General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, encourages all stakeholders and members of the public to support this plea for peace and justice in the Southeastern region. The release of Nnamdi Kanu will not only bring solace to the people but also restore confidence in the leadership’s commitment to the welfare and security of the Igbo people.
