Ekweremadu Visits Nnamdi Kanu, Says Political Solution Over IPOB Leader’s Release Still Possible

Former Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has said that he visited leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, in the custody of the Department of State Services.

Though he did not specify the date and time of his visit to Kanu, he said his visit was in line of seeking political solution for the release of the IPOB leader.

Ekweremadu said he went in company with some Igbo leaders like Deputy Minority Leader of the Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe; Secretary-General, Okey Emuchay; and Archbishop of Methodist Church of Nigeria and Co-Chair Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace, Bishop Sunday Onuoha.

He also reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s remarks on Channels Television interview on Wednesday where he said Kanu should defend himself in court.

Speaking via his verified Facebook page on Saturday, Ekweremadu said, “Political solution in the Nnamdi Kanu’s matter is still very feasible. I also watched the Channels Television interview and I don’t think Mr President ruled out a political solution.

“In fact, I would have been surprised if he said he would just release Nnamdi Kanu because there is independence of every arm of government, including the judiciary. There are procedures.

“I recall that it was exactly Mr President’s response when I led a delegation of the South-East Caucus of the Senate to see him on the Nnamdi Kanu issue in November 2016.

“But ultimately we kept reaching out and dialoguing until we had a political solution, which resulted in the judiciary granting Mazi Nnamdi Kanu a bail because ultimately, everything will come to the judiciary because every arm of government is independent.

“So, we will keep working on a political solution, nevertheless. We will keep engaging the government, just as we will continue to appeal to our youth and people to ensure the stability and prosperity of our region.

“I did lead a delegation to interface with the Kanu and the authorities. We had useful conversations. We have equally made some requests and we are waiting for a feedback from the government to make progress.

“As usual, I deliberately didn’t want to make it public because it is a quiet service we are rendering to Ndigbo and the nation. But the DSS eventually made it public in one of their statements.”

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.
