Nnamdi Kanu: Negotiations Between Igbo Leaders And FG Ongoing – Amaechi

Nnamdi Kanu: Negotiations Between Igbo Leaders And FG Ongoing – Amaechi

Ahead of Nnamdi Kanu’s court hearing on Friday, a First Republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi has revealed that there is an ongoing discussion between prominent persons of Igbo extraction and the Nigerian Federal Government, for the detained separatist leader to be freed.

CityNews Nigeria reports that diaspora-based Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was first arrested in 2015, but disappeared while on bail in April 2017. More than a year later, he surfaced in Israel.

His social media posts and broadcasts during his absence outraged the government, which said his comments sparked attacks on security forces in southeastern Nigeria.

Security agents produced him in court in Abuja on June 29, 2021, after detaining him in Kenya. He has appeared at the federal High Court, Abuja several times since that time.

“We the Igbo elders have met with President Muhammadu Buhari shortly after Kanu’s arraignment in court and told him to release him for us to go home and discuss with Kanu about the next Igbo agenda and Buhari gave us audience and ever since then, negotiations between us and the federal government have been on to free Kanu,” Vanguard, on Thursday, quotes Chief Amaechi as saying.
