ARREST OF NNAMDI KANU: South-East Demands Equal Right, Justice - Sen. Anyanwu

Anyanwu Warns Political Office holders Against Making Comments To Deride The South-East, Over Nnamdi Kanu's Arrest.

Following the arrest and arraignment of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by Nigerian authority, Senator Samuel Anyanwu in a statement issued on Monday July 5 2021 has expressed that; what the South-East geopolitical zone is demanding for is equal right, justice and fair play in his trial.

The PDP stalwart in Imo State, while citing Peter Tosh maintained that the Igbo people are not crying for peace, but for equal rights and justice in Nigeria, adding that until genuine dialogue is put in place, the call for one Nigeria will be a tall dream.

According to him, “as Nigerians are waiting for the outcome of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s trial, the entire world is equally watching carefully if fair hearing and laid down legal processes will be seen to have been applied”

Senator Anyanwu therefore cautioned any political office holder making inciting statements or mocking the South East over the arrest of the leader of IPOB to desist and allow the law to take its cause, warning that such comments are capable of creating ethnic crisis.

“It is unnecessary for any person occupying a position of trust to spark off another security tension now that the masses are coming out from similar challenges few months ago. My candid advice is for all regions in Nigeria to respect the South East not as a tribe but as one of the major ethnic groups in Nigeria.” He stated

While calling on the Igbo to remain calm, further wondered if what the Minister of Information and Culture, Mr. Lai Muhammed said that Mazi Kanu’s trial would follow due process will be realistic.
