Following the re-arrest of leader of Indeginous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, the Eze Ndigbo Mekong, South East Asia and the Vice President Ndi Eze Ndigbo in Diaspora, HRH Eze Uzochukwu Jerome Ezeneche has called on the Federal Government to go into dialogue with agitators so as not to escalate the already tensed political situation in the country.
In a statement, Ezeneche who is king of six nations and peace ambassador urges the FG to learn from the mistakes of the past that meeting force with force does not always yield good results. “Some time ago, leader of Boko Haram who then had scores of followers was arrested, his house demolished and eventually killed. you can see where that has landed Nigeria. More than 1 million lives has been lost, while the entire North East has been destablised. If that same thing should happen to Nnamdi Kanu, God forbid, South East will not only be destablised, Nigeria may also be thrown into turmoil That is why I am calling on President Muhamadu Buhari to see Nmamdi Kanu as his son, as one of the millions of Nigerians he swear under oath to protect by ensuring that no harm befall him.”
Furthermore, HRH Ezeneche also reminded the FG that as nation practicing democracy, freedom of speech should be guaranteed. ” Government should remember that international community are watching and the way Kanu issue is handled will show the whole world if we are truly practicing democracy as we claimed”
