Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, the President of Ohaneze Ndigbo, has made a plea to President Muhammadu Buhari.
He has once more pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Iwuanyanwu said Igbos are not seceding because they are everywhere and would not leave their investments.
He made the plea on Thursday while speaking at the flag of dredging of Oguta Lake – Orashi River in Imo State.
Buhari was represented during the occasion by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Iwuanyanwu said Buhari should release Nnamdi Kanu before he leaves office on May 29.
He said, “Our vice president, tell our brother, our son Buhari that Ohaneze Ndigbo with over 60 million people requests that he should release Nnamdi Kanu. Igbos are not seceding. I don’t see any reason why someone would say Igbos are seceding. Igbos are everywhere. We have investments, are we going to leave our investments?
“So please I am passing this message to him because he’s my president in Nigeria but in Ohaneze Ndigbo, he has been honoured by us and he is a member.
So he’s my subject there. So I am now telling him that Nnamdi Kanu should be released before he departs. We are going to be very grateful.”
