2023: Northern Elders, ACF, Against Nnamdi Kanu’s Release – Ohaneze

Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has accused the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, and the Northern Elders Forum of being the reason behind President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

The group said it had once predicted that the President will not release Kanu in its New Year message to Ndigbo, because, according to it, there are infighting evidence, misguided assertions and utterances of certain southeastern leaders and IPOB itself.

Ohanaeze said it has been sounding the warning that the approach, assertions and infighting in the camp of IPOB and amongst Igbo leaders will derail the release of Kanu through diplomatic efforts.

Ohanaeze claimed those who were sent to negotiate the unconditional release of the IPOB leader changed the course along the line and seized the opportunity to chase their personal gains.

Ohanaeze further claimed some Igbo political leaders and other people around Kanu are secretly benefiting from the president’s nonchalant posture of not applying the political solution for Kanu’s reasons.

Furthermore, Ohanaeze claimed that “Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF and Northern Elders Forum, NEF, are behind President Buhari’s refusal to grant Nnamdi Kanu a political solution with evil intent to disorganize and set the South-East ablaze ahead of the 2023 Presidency.

“Nnamdi Kanu’s trials will bring the untold tragedy of tensions and disastrous violence to the Southeast,” Ohanaeze said in a statement signed by Okechukwu Isiguzoro, its Secretary-General.

No sit-at-home in the SouthEast on 19 and 20 January – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated that there will be no sit-at-home in Biafra land on January 19th and 20th.

The Media and Publicity Secretary for IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful stated this in a press release made available to Chrysora Media on Saturday.

Emma Powerful stated, however, that the entire Biafra land will be on lock down only on January 18, the day their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is billed to appear in court.

He noted that 19th January is the judgment day in the suit by Nnamdi Kanu against the Federal Government in a suit pending before an Umuahia High Court.

“So, there will be no sit-at-home on that day,” he said categorically.

Regretting the inconveniences caused by the routine lockdowns, he said:

“We don’t want to compound the pains of our people, hence, we will limit the sit-at-home to only January 18.

“Biafrans and residents of Biafra are free to go about their businesses without molestations on 19th and 20th January.

“Anybody found enforcing non-existent Monday sit-at-home on 17th, 19th and 20th is criminal and must be treated as such.

“IPOB leadership have given order and that order is signed.”

Emma Powerful urged IPOB coordinators to be careful because every principal of IPOB, mostly the coordinators, must know that it will bounce on their heads if they don’t checkmate the activities of members and call them to order.

“IPOB is not village or social club where everybody will behave untoward to people like cultists.

“It is on the table and to the knowledge of IPOB leadership how some principal officers were encouraging evils in IPOB without minding the repercussions and consequences but we want to make categorically known to them that it will come back to him or her that encouraged evil against his or her fellow human beings,” he said.

“Nobody is expected to interfere with either human or vehicular movements in those days under any guise.

“Any detractor or agent of darkness caught obstructing peoples activities in Biafra land on January 19th and 20th in the name of enforcing sit-at-home will regret his or her actions.

“We realise that some unscrupulous and traitors are trying to create confusion about these days and dishing false information and propaganda trying to create confusion in Biafra land.

“IPOB never declared sit-at-home on 19th and 20th of January 2022. Therefore, we want all Biafrans to go to their normal business on these days without fear.

“Anybody issuing order for sit at home on 19th and 20th of January is not a member of IPOB.

“Such persons are working against the interest of our leader and the entire struggle for independence. They should be disregarded.

“For the umpteenth time, IPOB is under one Central command and Control , and doesn’t have parallel or factional leadership.

“The Directorate of State (DOS) under the command of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is in charge of the global movement of IPOB.

“Anybody who is not loyal to DOS is an impostor and should be disregarded.

“We expect our people everywhere to adhere to this directive and refuse to be misled by sacked members of IPOB in Europe and America.

“IPOB remains unshakeable, built and rooted on the rock and will remain so until the freedom for Biafra is fully achieved,” he concluded.
