Apex Igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has called on South-East Governors and leaders to tell President Muhammadu Buhari the truth about Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

In a statement on Thursday signed by its Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the group lamented that South East politicians were unwilling to make sacrifices for the good of the region.

Isiguzoro lamented that South East politicians were “remote-controlled” by their counterparts in the seat of power, and accused Igbo leaders and politicians of failing to show bravery amid the challenges confronting the South East.

He however added that the one month sit-at-home exercise ordered by IPOB would lead to another civil war, if Kanu was not released.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide laments on the ineptitude of the South East political leaders to show bravery, heroism, and political will to voice the truth to President Muhammadu Buhari on where he was not getting it right as the South East remained the adversities and calamitous impediments that had befallen the IGBO.

“Ndigbo are cognizant of the fact that Abuja holds the remote controls of most actions of the South East politicians.

“South East Governors are reluctant to make sacrifices for the South East, they are inclined to trade off the Igbo’s interests for Abuja’s enticements and inducements, in compensation for doing Abuja’s bidding and interests in the East,” the statement reads partly.
