Chief Peter Umeadi who is former Chief Judge of Anambra State, has submitted the suggestion the best option for resolving the case Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
According to Umeadi, Kanu’s case should best be resolved politically and not legally as is currently being done.
Addressing journalists on Sunday in Abuja, the 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, said Kanu’s release would end insecurity in the Southeast.
According to Umeadi: ‘Well, the issue of insecurity in the South East first of all, it has been said before and I agree, for now, it is a serious matter.
‘If it is solved, then that is good. The problem, if it is not solved, then you begin to look for another reason why it is still there.
‘But for now everybody is saying it and I agree that the issue of Nnamdi Kanu should be treated as a political matter, not a legal matter.
‘So if he regains his freedom, perhaps that will be the end of what we are seeing in the South East now, perhaps.’
In another report, the IPOB has warned the apex Igbo sociocultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, to be careful not to stand in the way of Igbos agitating for Biafra.
IPOB stressed that the group remains resolute on its clamour for Biafra referendum.
The spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful issued the warning while reacting to the comment by a chieftain of Ohanaeze, Barrister Augustine Amaechi, against Biafra referendum.
Amaechi had said Igbos want restructuring and not referendum as claimed by IPOB.
Condemning the remark, Powerful described those against Biafra’s referendum as political jobbers.
