Nnamdi Kanu: HURIWA condemns silence of Southeastern governors

Justice Binta Nyako of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Tuesday ordered the remand of fugitive leader of the indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in the custody of the department of State services (DSS).

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA has expressed concern over the silence of southeastern Governors on the predicament of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

HURIWA said, ‘’It is a total act of betrayal that the governors of the South East maintained conspiratorial silence amidst allegations that President Buhari abducted Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya, subjected him to indignities in an illegal rendition and then forcefully repatriated him to Nigeria against norms of International law.”

“It is crude, primitive and wicked that the southeast governors took no action to ascertain the veracity of the allegation of illegal abduction of a prominent Igbo son even if the governors are not in agreement just like most of us are with the advocacy for self-determination in the South East of Nigeria”.

Meanwhile, the Abia State Government had recently revealed that it was actively monitoring the situation with the IPOB leader.

Nnamdi Kanu is currently under trial at a Federal High Court in Abuja and his state of origin, Abia, vowed to ensure that his fundamental human rights, as enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, are respected.
