Resolve IPOB, Kanu’s matter with dialogue or Nigeria sinks in 9 months – Igbo youths



A group of Igbo youths under the aegis of Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, has appealed to the federal government to follow the path of dialogue and discard the fresh terrorist charge against the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

The group noted that Nigerian government is moving close to gun-powder and fire, appealing to the FG to settle the case outside the court.

The Council made the appeal through its National President, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, on Tuesday in Owerri, Imo State capital shortly after a “Peace and Conflict Resolution,” meeting of the council.

It attributed the sudden
escalation of deep problem between Nigeria government and Pro-Biafra groups to the poor treatment meted out to the latter by the former, beginning from the time of Ralph Uwazurike up until date.

According to OYC,” The demand for self-determination among Igbos is an evidence of how Igbos are being treated in Nigeria since the end of the Nigeria-Biafra civil war. ”

“The colossal failure of southeast leaders from Governors, senators, House of Representatives, Ministers, House of Assembly members and all sorts of political leaders in the southeast contributed to the economic decay which raised the demand of young generation to seek the actualization of State of Biafra started by Dim Ikemba Odimegwu Ojukwu in 1967.”

Speaker further, OYC National President said, “Since the year 2000, there are many members of MASSOB in Nigerian prison. I,n Anambra and Awka prison about 15 members of Massob are still in prison since 13 years.”

OYC regretted that 15 members of MASSOB had been lying waste in Anambra and Awka prison since 13 years, among whom he bemoaned was a pregnant woman, Mrs. Onyedika Orji who gave birth in prison.

The council said, “Nigeria government should follow the path of dialogue and negotiation in dealing with pro-Biafrans or risk the sinking of Nigeria within 9 months,” he insisted, stressing that there are more than 10 thousand Igbo young men more controversial on the issue of Biafra restoration than Nnamdi Kanu.
