Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to prevail on the Department of State Services to urgently release the Director of Radio Biafra and Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

The Council in a statement in Umuahia, Abia State, jointly signed by its National President, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and the Secretary, Nnabuike Okwu, condemned Kanu’s continued detention four days after the court ordered his release.
The statement read “We are pleading with the Federal Government to as a matter of sacrifice for the continued peace and unity of Nigeria to please release Nnamdi Kanu. This call has become necessary because it will be extremely difficult for us to continue to calm his followers and sympathizers who see his detention as a provocation.

“President Buhari should help save the country from unnecessary tension by prevailing on the DSS to release Kanu since the courts have discharged and acquitted him.

“We know how much effort it took us to prevail on IPOB and MASSOB members to stop their protests before the court ruling, and we don’t know what to tell them again as Kanu is still in detention four days after he was discharged by a court of competent jurisdiction.”

The council also appealed to all Igbo youths to exercise calm. “We call on all Igbo youths especially IPOB and MASSOB members, as well as other Biafran agitators to resist the snare by the enemies of Ndigbo to again, turn Igbo soil into theatre of war.

“The destruction in the North-East is what our enemies want to see happen in South-East but we must collectively resist that. Some people are looking for an opportunity to use the protests that Kanu’s continued detention might spark to invade Igbo land with war planes and to send Ndigbo backwards again.”

“The recent killing of IPOB and MASSOB members in Onitsha by security agents as they jubilated over the court order for his release was a tip on the iceberg of the agenda of our enemies to decimate Ndigbo on the excuse of quelling uprising. To be forewarned is to be forearmed,” the Council added.
