An Igbo sociocultural association, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has urged the federal government to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

In a statement issued by the group secretary-general, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, said Kanu’s release will prevent a possible breakdown of law and order in the country while adding that the sit-at-home order by IPOB will scuttle the efforts of Igbo leaders and politicians on the matter.

IPOB had said it would enforce a lockdown tagged ‘Ghost Monday’ every Monday in the south-east until Kanu is released.

Reacting, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide said: “The sit at home declaration aimed at pressurizing the Nigerian authorities to release Nnamdi Kanu will destroy the backstage activities and efforts of Igbo leaders and politicians to use diplomatic means to get him released.

“There’s hunger and hardship in southeastern Nigeria, from sad experiences of past sit at homes, there were economic losses, destruction of properties, and hikes in prices of food and essential materials across southeastern Nigeria, and Igbos painstakingly endured untold hardship and this must not continue.

“Igbos should circumvent the hardships associated with sit at home and ignore it and go to their normal businesses on Monday, Ipob should review their stance and unveil more strategic planning with Southern Nigerian governors and legislators to press for the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu without hurting or subjecting the people to sorrow, affliction and despair.”
