Group Drags S’East Govs, Others To Shrine Over Nnamdi Kanu

Listen to article

A group known as Eziokwu Bu Ndu Ofo n’Ogo, an Igbo group sympathetic to the cause of Biafra, has dragged the five South East governors and other Igbo leaders to two shrines over the plight of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

The Eastern Updates reports that other Igbo leaders dragged before Ogoni Zodere Shrine in Bidere Community in Rivers State and Okija Shrine in Anambra State are Willy Obiano, former governor of Anambra State, and Rochas Okoroacha, former governor of Imo State.

Chairman of the group, Iheukwumere Emele claimed all the divination performed by the seers at the two shrines pointed to the Igbo leaders as responsible for Kanu’s challenges.

The Afa and Ugiri performed by some seers in a community in Abia state, pointed to the fact that the so mentioned Igbo leaders are behind Kanu’s problem since they have not made any move for his release.

‘Onuru ube nwanne agbala oso’ is an Igbo adage that made it clear we should be our brother’s keepers and it appears these Igbo leaders are not acting in line with that time tested adage in the case of Nnamdi Kanu,’ Emele said.

He went on to employ the gods of their ancestors to be judges over the IPOB leader’s case.

Meanwhile, Igbo elders under the aegis of the Igbo Elders Consultative Forum, have called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to reconsider its position on appealing the Appeal Court ruling on Kalu’s case which quashed all the terrorism charges against him.

The Elders pointed out that the decision of the Federal Government to appeal the judgment at the Supreme Court was needless and should be reconsidered, stating that the appeal can aggravate the security challenges and peace process initiatives in the South East, and can also prevent the peaceful conduct of 2023 general elections, with other ripple effects on the peace, unity, stability and continued corporate existence of Nigeria.

The Chairman of the Forum, former Anambra State governor, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, told journalists at a press conference in Abuja, on Friday, that not obeying the court judgment could be misinterpreted by many that the Federal Government has other motives for keeping the IPOB leader in detention.
