IPOB order: Again, South-East Governors Meet Buhari Over Nnamdi Kanu
“We are aware of the various illegal orders of sit-at-home by different groups of state agitators for our people of South-East to sit at home every Monday and from 5th to 10th November 2021.
The South-East Governors have resolved to soon meet with President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to dialogue over issues surrounding the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
The governors said that the meeting would guarantee that political solutions were deployed in the case of the IPOB leader who is currently in the detention of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Also, the meeting will address the violence in the South-East and the sit-at-home orders issued by different groups of agitators.
This was revealed in a press release issued by the South-East Governors’ Forum through its Chairman who also doubled as the Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, and made available on Thursday.
The governors said, “We are aware of the various illegal orders of sit-at-home by different groups of state agitators for our people of South-East to sit at home every Monday and from 5th to 10th November 2021.
“Whereas we have identified some of the spokespersons of some of these groups and we have been engaging them to stop all forms of violence and illegalities in South-East and allow South-East leaders to address all issues raised by them, we are however working with security agencies, our local security and our leaders to protect the lives of our people and to address all issues raised.
“We thank Ohaneze Ndigbo for a good job they did through their various committees in raising various solutions towards addressing all issues raised by our young children. South-East Governors are studying their reports with the elders and leaders of the various South-East states and very soon, we will be meeting with Federal Government of Nigeria on these issues including deploying political solutions in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which we have already initiated.
“We thank our religious leaders, Conference of Bishops and Archbishops of South-East, the traditional institutions of South East and Christian Association of Nigeria of South-East for their interventions and mediations on this matter. We will work with them to achieve the desired result for our people and Nigeria.”
