NNAMDI KANU'S DETENTION: YOU HATE NDIGBO, OHANAEZE YOUTHS TELL BUHARI
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, OYC, has accused President Muhammadu
Buhari of being anti Igbo and urged him to release the detained leader,
without further delay.
The youth group wondered why the Federal Government would continue to
detain Kanu who has never taken up arms against the state while members of

decision of the founding fathers of the state who put in place the power
rotation arrangement be respected to give peace a chance.”
