The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has showered praises on the South-East Governors, for calling for the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB had accused the Governors of not showing concern over Kanu’s continued detention, but in a meeting in Enugu on Sunday), they said they would meet President Muhammadu Buhari to demand the release of Kanu.
In a statement released by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, the group also urged the Governors to speak out against the killings carried out by Fulani herdsmen in the region.
“This is the first time in recorded history that South-East governors have stood boldly to align themselves with the interest of the masses, which in this case, is the call for Buhari to end the injustice against the people of Biafra by releasing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader.
“If they had summoned the courage like Governor Fayose of Ekiti State, and former Anambra State governor, Dr. Ezeife, the South-East wouldn’t have been in such a fine moral mess it is today.
“We hope this new found boldness will extend to them speaking up for the victims of Fulani herdsmen attacks in our rural communities.
“It is our prayer and that of every right thinking person that all those in political positions of South-East and South-South extraction would be resolute and steadfast going forward, as our leader has ably demonstrated over the years, and not allow themselves to slip back to their bad old ways of cowardly compromise with the oppressors of their people,” the statement read.
