THE traditional ruler of Omasi, Igwe Benjamin Okeji has called for the unconditional release of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB) leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the interest of equity, peace and justice in Nigeria, especially in the South East Geopolitical Zone.

  Igwe Okeji in a press statement in lamentation over the continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu urged the federal government to release him unconditionally because according to him, the IPoB leader has done nothing to justify his detention.

  According to the royal father, atrocities committed against innocent Nigerians by people of unquestionable characters in Nigeria go unpunished while Mazi Kanu whom many view as a freedom fighter is being detained for speaking out against injustices meted out against the Igbo race.

  He urged the Igbos to take stock of the heinous crimes committed in Igbo land and read in between the lines the grand decision to use Igbos to fight Igbos in their territory and plans to gradually depopulate the race.

  Igwe Okeji used the forum to commend Governor Chukwuma Soludo for his patronage of made in Anambra State goods and urged that efforts be made to encourage the use of made in Anambra State goods to enhance the revenue profile of the state.

  On his part, a former Chairman, Anambra State Chapter of the Nigerian Bar Association, Emmanuel Okechukwu (Jr) advocated the unconditional release of Mazi Kanu who in his estimation has done nothing to justify his detention.

  According to Okechukwu (Junior), the federal government should engage in constructive horse trading to address the agitations raised by the IPoB detained leader.

  Frowning at the continued detention of the IPoB leader, the legal expert urged the Nigerian authorities and political parties in Nigeria to zone the 2023 presidency to the South East Geopolitical Zone and support the emergence of an Igbo president to douse the political tension in the country.

  He reasoned that the use of outright force by government will heighten, rather than douse the already high tension caused by the continued detention of Mazi kanu.

  In a related development, a former Chancellor of the Awka Catholic Diocese, Very Rev Prof John Paul Nzomiwu encouraged Governor Soludo to remain resolute in his determination to restore sanity in the state.

  Monsignor Nzomiwu spoke in favour of his reforms in abolishing touting and his efforts to minimise the high level of criminality in the state.

  Believing that the injustices meted out to the Igbos are not justifiable, he expects that those fighting for Igbo cause should apply caution in their disposition.

  Monsignor Nzomiwu supported the power of prayers as recommended by Governor Soludo as efficacious in dousing the insecurity in the state.
