Deliberate Act : Nnamdi Kanu’s Family slams Igbo Leaders

 Nnamdi Kanu’s family , has accused Igbo leaders and elites of benefiting from the continuous detention of their son. The leader of the Indigenous People of  Biafra (IPOB) has been held captive since on the on  14th of October 2015 he was arrested for   11-count charge bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, managing an unlawful amongst other charges.

Speaking via a statement by Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, the family alleged that some selfish politicians benefiting from the insecurity in the South East are behind Kanu’s continued detention.

The family wondered why some Igbo political leaders now find it difficult to book a meeting with President Bola Tinubu since he took over power.

He said, “How be it that nobody among Igbo political leaders has reached out to Tinubu to discuss Nnamdi Kanu’s release almost a year after he came to power?

“Is it not deliberate? Have they not been gaining access to the President concerning other issues? It’s a shame that Kanu is being punished for asking for the freedom of Ndigbo and the leaders have abandoned him to die in DSS custody.

“Kanu is terribly sick and nobody cares. His health is deteriorating every day. He has not changed his clothes. Why has the court continued to hold him in DSS custody instead of the Correctional Centre?”

Kanu’s family insisted that some people are benefiting from his continued incarceration, hence the apparent apathy on the part of the political elite to engage the President for his release.

The family said: “Why can’t they go for his release if they truly love the South East? Something is definitely wrong somewhere. They are benefiting from his continued detention, and that’s why they are not making any serious moves to engage Mr President. Don’t forget that some people sponsored his abduction and extraordinary rendition.

“Why should he be abandoned for asking for the freedom of Biafra? He didn’t take up arms against the government, but he was tagged as a terrorist. Yet the same government is busy releasing terrorists from detention.”

The IPOB leader’s family threatened to expose the beneficiaries of their son’s continued incarceration and the insecurity in the Southeast region.

If they fail to act, Ndigbo and Biafrans at large must hold them responsible. And it may get to a point where the masses may no longer be held back”, they added.
