Nnamdi Kanu: Eastern Union Seeks Arrest Of Boko Haram, Bandits’ Leaders, Others

The Eastern Union (EU), a political pressure group for the people of the Old Eastern Region, has said that the re-arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), has shown that the country has security men that can plan, coordinate and execute projects, if willing and determined.

Hon. Charles Anike, the EU National President, wondered why such security men with determination and sophistication had not been deployed to plan and arrest the leaders of Boko Haram, bandits and the legions of kidnappers freely unleashing mayhem on Nigerian citizens.

The EU boss stressed that although most people might not have agreed with Nnamdi Kanu’s method and approach, “certainly most of us believe in what he stands for; equity, fairness and justice.”

The group, however, advised the government to be very careful in the handling of the case by the IPOB leader to avoid escalating the already tense situation in the South-East in particular and the country at large.

“Regrettably, the biggest challenge with the Buhari government is the lack of diplomacy and tact in the handling of sensitive issues.

“The government should as a matter of urgency, consult with relevant stakeholders and civil society groups in the East to organise security and value reorientation programmes across the states of the South-East and South-South zones.

“The Federal Government should also employ the same efforts and determination to arrest the leaders of Boko Haram, leaders of bandits and kidnapping groups, that have been kidnapping students in the North for ransom.

“It is only then that their present action of the re-arrest of the IPOB leader can be justified. But, so long as the government keeps pretending, pampering and allowing criminal elements and terrorists from the north to continue to have free days in their criminal activities, deserved peace will continue to elude us across the country, even with the re-arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, it stressed.

It added: “Another way to do it is that the government should not ignore all the points raised by the IPOB agitators.

“Total and genuine restructuring of the country will definitely lay to rest all the secessionist sing song.
