Nnamdi Kanu: Ohanaeze youths attack FG over alleged human right violations

The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has stated that the democratic and human rights of freedom of association and speech enjoyed in democracy has been murdered by President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

OYC said such unlawful action was evidenced in the blatant use of force against any form of opposition since Buhari came into power.

The group likened the Buhari administration to a military government that goes about its whims and caprices mindless of whose ox is gored.

The OYC, in a release signed by its National President, Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, and sent to newsmen on Wednesday, urged the Nigerian government to shun judicial impunity and unwarranted measures over its case.

It also demanded that the Federal Government embraces unconventional means to arrest the political instability in the country.

It condemned in strong terms the arrest of journalists who reportedly went to cover the court proceedings in the treasonable felony trial of the leader of the Indigeneous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, at Federal High Court in Abuja.

Ohanaeze youths described the unwarranted arrest as a sign of colossal failure of democracy in Nigeria, and called for their immediate release.

“It’s highly undemocratic and a show of tyranny of President Muhammadu Buhari administration watching Nigeria security agents beat civilians and IPOB members who came to watch the court proceedings.

“British government should wake up to the present realities in Nigeria and see the contraption they created. becoming a monster that eats its child. President Buhari is majestically walking on a tiny rope with a sharp blade, that if not well cautioned will strip Nigeria of her sovereignty.

“Nigeria government is becoming an institution on a suicide mission; rule of law has been imprisoned, freedom of speech is in exile, freedom of association has been buried, value of human life has no place by those with political powers, security agents has become vampires that carnivorously feed on the flesh of Self- determination group of Igbo extraction, the IPOB and others,” the statement read.

“The international community with a sense of humanity should come to the aid of Nigerians, as the situation here in Nigeria is secretly more fearful than the time of Gen. Idi Amin of Uganda. Our country is turning into a den of scavengers, Igbo youths has been pushed to the wall since 2015 that President Muhammadu Buhari came to power, the political actors of Nigeria government should bear in mind that Nnamdi Kanu’s case is not strictly IPOB case but completely an Igbo affair, therefore, every Igbo person by conviction, trait and act is an Indigenous Person Of Biafra.”

OYC commended the diplomatic and tactical effort of the parent body led by Professor George Obiozor towards Nnamdi Kanu’s ordeal, calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to hand Mazi Nnamdi Kanu over to noble political leaders of Igbo extraction which will guarantee a quick negotiation and dialogue on the quest for self- determination.
