Biafra: SEE Why Igbo House of Reps Members Are Silent On Nnamdi Kanu’s Incarceration

A House of Reps member representing Arochukwu/ Ohafia federal constituency, Hon. Uko Nkole, has revealed why National Assembly members of Igbo extraction are silent over the continued detention of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, who was arrested by the operatives of the Department of State Security, DSS, in October 2015.

Responding to criticisms that have come the way of South-east National Assembly members for saying or doing nothing about the Radio Biafra foundera��s ordeal, Nkole said he and his colleagues decided to keep sealed lips over Kanua��s affairs a�?because the matter is already in court.a�?

The federal government has preferred treason charges against the IPOB leader.

The Reps member, who gave the explanations while fielding questions from newsmen on Friday after inaugurating his constituency office in Ohafia, said there was nothing they could do until the court had decided on the matter.

He decried the reported declaration of some part of Ohafia farmland as a�?Republic of Fulania�? by some Fulani herdsmen who also hoisted their flag in the area, and commended the security agents for dismantling the said flag.
Speaking on the destruction of crops and farmlands in some parts of the South-east states by Fulani herdsmen and their cattle, he condemned the action and called on the security agencies to rise up to the challenge before it degenerates into ethnic clashes.

Nkole maintained that while there is freedom of movement in the country, it would be wrong for herdsmen to hide under the guise of such freedom to destroy crops and farmlands of their host communities.

  1. Still, their silence is quite deafening. We have all seen the slaughter of of innocent protesters in Onitcha, Port Harcourt and Aba, to mention a few. It is a matter of humanity and a civic responsibility to complain about the death of so many who were engaged in completely peaceful protests at the hands of the brutal Nigerian security services. No one in the world could possibly call that agitation of any sort. Those that have been elected to positions of authority in the SE and the SS must speak up in defense of the rights of their electorate to demonstrate peacefully. It is a question of honour and dignity.
