An Anambra base Chieftain of the All Peoples Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Umeh, has reacted on the arrest and incarceration of Nnamdi Kalu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
While speaking with the BBC Igbo, shortly after Kanu’s arrest, Mr. Umeh revealed the way forward with underlying factors and cautions.
In his statement during the interview, he lamented that since Nnamdi Kanu has been arrested by the Nigerian government, it is left for Nigeria to follow his case according to the constitution.
Despite showing a lot of displeasure with Nnamdi Kanu’s method of achieving justice, he noted that the South East has always wanted peace and love to reign in Nigeria adding that the leaders never agreed to achieve this through violence or going contrary to Nigeria’s Constitution.
“In the same way that the government arrested a man for allegedly violating the Constitution in the pursuit of justice, the government should also arrest the problem that prompted him to act.
“The only way of maintaining this peace and others is by eradicating all forms of impartiality in Nigeria.
“If the problems that gave rise to this quest for people to achieve justice are not solved, even if Nnamdi Kanu is imprisoned, other people will still replace him”, he warned.
Recall that Kanu, was arrested on Sunday, June 27, 2021 and brought to Nigeria. This is according to the attorney general of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
According to reports, the IPOB leader was on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, who slated July 26 for the continuation of his trial.
