Ohanaeze, the Igbo socio-cultural group has blasted the 75 coalition Northern groups for placing a bounty on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB).
During an interview with the PUNCH, the Ohanaeze Publicity Secretary, Alex Ogbonnaya, who made this known, said
that the northern groups should instead place a bounty on their ravaging Fulani herdsmen and bandits as well as the Boko Haram.
On Thursday, a coalition of 75 northern groups, under the aegis of the Northern Consensus Movement, had placed a bounty of N100million for anybody who could bring Mazi Nnamdi Kanu back to Nigeria hale and hearty or provide informations that will assist the law enforcement agencies arrest him.
Ogbonnaya said, “I congratulate the Northern Coalition Movement for thinking about Nigeria, but if they want to be fair, they should place N100m bounty on the heads of leaders of Boko Haram, Fulani Herdsmen, ISWAP, and other non-state actors, who are known to be terrorists. As you know, Ohanaeze does not agree that the Indigenous People of Biafra is a terrorist group.
“Nnamdi Kanu is not the issue here. There is a major issue of selective justice when you focus on one and leave another.
“Igbos all over have been complaining of injustice. No matter the millions of dollars placed on Nnamdi Kanu, it cannot stop agitation from the South-East.”
He blamed the issue of agitations on the deficiencies of the President, Muhammadu Buhari.
He said when all the appointments are being manned by one section, that does not show federal character.
“What the region needs are justice and peaceful dialogue with the Federal Government. If this is done, all these issues of agitations and secession coming from the region will cease.
“Our advice to the NCM is to direct their agitations to the appropriate authorities,” he added.
