Alaigbo De­velopment Foundation warns against Nnamdi Kanu’s re-arrest

A prominent Igbo group, the Alaigbo De­velopment Foundation (ADF), has called on President Mu­hammadu Buhari to jettison any plan to re-arrest the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Bi­afra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to avoid plunging the country into more crises.

In a statement made avail­able in Abuja on Monday and signed by its President, Prof. Uzodin­ma Nwala and Secretary, Prof. Nath Aniekwu, the group said that Nigeria is now flooded with many people like Kanu.

The ADF admonished the President to “take it easy and begin by clearing the dangerous debris around him. He needs” God-fearing men around him, the statement said.

Nwala said: “His (Buhari) headache is not Nnamdi Kanu or IPOB or the Igbo nation. It is not even the South-South, the North Central or the West. His headache is how to create an en­abling environment for the vari­ous nationalities to come togeth­er to decide which way Nigeria.

“Mr. Nnamdi Kanu is a pris­oner of conscience. Nigeria is now swarming with many peo­ple like him. If you incarcerate him again, it will not relieve your headache, it will even explode.

“For the avoidance of doubt, this type of attitude of creating two kinds of citizens: one, those above the law (Arewa youths) and the other, those that will be blackmailed by the punishment of the law even when they com­mit no offence (IPOB), is one of the things that fuel most of the agitations all over the country.”

While saying that no rea­sonable person would want to live in a nation with such level of inequity, ADF said that Ni­geria has never been as divided as now except during the “gen­ocide against Ndigbo (1967-70).

“Nigeria’s unity is negotia­ble, that’s all that Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB are pointing at and therefore needs redressing. No­body is a slave of the other in this country. If there is no law obliterating divorce in Nigeria, it is ironical to think that by mere wishful thinking that Nigeria will remain as it were a model of abusive marriage,” they added.

ADF further decried the handling of the quit notice is­sued by Arewa youths to Igbo in the northern part of the coun­try and the failure to arrest the youths by the government.

“The Arewa youths had giv­en the Igbo ultimatum to leave Northern Nigeria latest by Oc­tober 1, 2017. Many people re­garded their action as treasona­ble and a threat of genocide.

“The governor of Kaduna State and the Inspector-Gen­eral of Police declared that they should be arrested. They were not arrested. Rather what we heard were a series of state­ments from some Arewa lead­ers supporting their action. Consequently, the Arewa youths continued in their belligerent threats and mocked the arrest orders,” ADF said.

While noting that President Buhari since his return from the United Kingdom (UK) failed to address the quit notice to Ndig­bo nor condemn the virulent Hausa hate songs being circu­lated and other pressing issues in the country, ADF wondered why the President used his re­cent speech to declare war on IPOB.
