Freedom calls for Nnamdi Kanu at last. The freedom fighter has gotten much converts in the recent days. Ohaneze Ndigbo leader, John Nnia Nwodo , Holy Ghost Adoration Uke Director, Rev Fr Emmanuel Obimma of Ebube Mounso fame, Law Mefor , a journalist of records among other Nigerians have continued to speak in solidarity of Kanu’s agitation for a fair dealing for Ndigbo. They may not agree totally on same modalities but agree Ndigbo are no longer second fiddle but excluded.
His followers across the world too especially the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has shown some faith and supported him through thick and thin with enough media mobilization, and counter propaganda of All Progressives Congress (APC), a political party and government characterised with lies upon lies daily.
Hundreds of unarmed IPOB, MASSOB or by whatever name have been killed with their names and addresses captured at no slightest provocation yet APC and its security arms continued to deny that no IPOB etc was murdered so to speak. True federalism and one Nigeria , my foot?
They all agreed that Kanu has been unjustly incarcerated and that he alongside other prisoners of conscience should be released from jail and political solution given to their grievances.
I am convinced the boiling point has reached and soonest against all calculations, that Kanu would be freed to the peace and happiness of the jailer, the jailed and associates and friends of both divide. We are watching President Muhammadu Buhari’s vice, Prof Yemi Osibanjo on what he does with our cerebral Nnamdi Kanu, His Excellency as he is called in prison.
The war like tunes from MASSOB are too cascading to inclusive stance, even without knowing the direction per say like Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign state of Biafra (MASSOB) allayed fears of another attack or disruption of CENSUS 2018, and gladly MASSOB has apologized for the great dis-service to Ndigbo in 2006, though, its strength was shown significantly.
We as Ndigbo so far has suffered much under Xenophobic attacks in South Africa, trip by desert and Mediterranean Sea, looters of our common patrimony, election riggers, nepotism, tribalism, Customs and other security harassments, appointments, fire disaster, Fulani Herdsmen, fuel tanker accidents to mention but a few but it appears the incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu smacks insult and humiliation of a race whose voice was lost on unnecessary bickering and backbiting by Ohaneze Ndigbo leadership.
But today it appears the driver is back on his seat, better focused and mission oriented but time will tell especially how it handles issues surrounding Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB Leader.
