Nnamdi Kanu’s family hails Ohanaeze, S’East govs, NASS members, others

In a statement issued on Sunday, the family of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), expressed their gratitude to the President-General and leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, as well as the Southeast governors, for their unwavering support of Kanu since his arrest in 2021.

The family also commended the Chairman and members of the joint body of southeast traditional rulers, bishops, archbishops, Southeast governors, and members of the National Assembly for their efforts in intervening in Kanu’s trial.

The statement, signed by Kingsley Kanunta Kanu on behalf of the family, encouraged those who have been subjected to blackmail and false accusations as a result of Kanu’s trial not to give up.

They advised them to view such blackmail as the deceptive actions of those who oppose Kanu and the Southeast region.

The statement reads: “To all those that this may concern, we, the siblings of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu hereby wish to express our heartfelt appreciation for the exceptional support and dedication to the cause of justice for our brother and head of our family, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu since his rendition from Kenya.

“In particular recognition of certain Southeast civic and political leaders of renown, we have noted your unwavering and sincere commitment to seeking his release from detention and other support you have rendered, noticed or unnoticed.

“We must not fail to thank in particular the President-General and leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo, the Chairman and members of the Joint Body of Southeast Traditional Rulers, Bishops & Archbishops; certain Southeast Governors and members of the National Assembly.

“Your constant interventions, covert or overt, have not only made a difference, but they have also inspired and motivated others to see the injustice of the case. We are genuinely grateful for what you all have done.

“To those of you who have been blackmailed or accused falsely and baselessly, we ask you not to relent but to see such blackmails and false accusations as the mischievous workings and betrayals of those that do not wish Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Southeast well.

“Once again, thank you all for your remarkable efforts and unwavering support. We are truly appreciative of everything you all have done; and we look forward to the opportunity of soon witnessing the positive outcome of your interventions.”
