The National Assembly’s Southeast members have decided to intervene in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB who was taken into custody by the Buhari led Aso-Rock.
The lawmaker agreed to seek a political solution to Nnamdi Kanu case, as they prepare to form a committee that will approach the Federal Government and other relevant stakeholders on the pro-Biafran agitator’s matter.
This was one of the solutions reached by the Southeast lawmakers during a meeting in Abuja at the home of former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu.
There was a communiqué that was issued at the end of the meeting, and it reads in part, “We elaborately discussed the issue of Mazi Nnamdi and resolved to intervene.
“To this end, we resolved to set up a committee to constructively interface with relevant stakeholders, the Federal Government and its relevant agencies towards finding a political solution. We will keep Ndigbo abreast of developments in regard.
“Noted with delight that IPOB has called off the Monday sit-at-home order and resolved to ensure that nobody uses them as façades to bring ruination on Igbo land.
“Call on our people to go about their lawful businesses and enjoin our governors and the security agencies to rebuild confidence in our people by not only ensuring the security of their lives and properties but also ensuring that our people feel safe as they undertake their legitimate businesses.”
A spokesperson for IPOB did not return SurgeZirc NG’s request for comment.
