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

the dreaded Boko Haram terror group are being serially released from

detention.
In a statement signed by its National President, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro,

insisted that the continued detention of the IPOB leader even against

court orders, is the cause of the escalating tension and ill- feelings in

the South East and part of South South zone, and portrays President

Buhari’s administration as anti- Igbo.
It further stated that said intelligence reports available to the Igbo

youths group indicated that there could be a total breakdown of law and

order in the entire South East and South South zones if Kanu is not

released soon.
“It beats our imagination that terrorists who have been responsible for

the death of innocent Nigerians are being released while unarmed freedom

fighters are kept behind the bars against court orders.

“This bias poses serious threat to our peace and national unity, and we

hope the President will address it before it becomes too late”, the

statement said.
On the tussle over the Abia state governorship position, Ohanaeze youth

council argued that the Abia Charter of Equity which recommends power

rotation among the senatorial zones in the state should be respected for

justice and fair play.
“Anything that truncates the zoning arrangement in the state could pose

security threat which will not be in the interest of anybody. As Igbo

youths, we can’t afford to sit back and watch any Igbo state put into

avoidable crisis, hence our call for the Abia Charter of Equity to be

respected by all the parties.
“Removing Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu who is the first and only governor from

Ukwa/ Ngwa zone amounts to shortchanging the entire Abia South zone as

other zones has produced two term governors. We advise that the wise

decision of the founding fathers of the state who put in place the power

rotation arrangement be respected to give peace a chance.”
