THE WORLD IGBO CONGRESS STATEMENT ON THE ABDUCTION OF MAZI NNAMDI KANU BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA

World Igbo Congress, WIC, has expressed concern over the arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

In a statement made by the International Igbo body signed by its Chairman, Prof. Anthony Ejiofor, WIC said it has been briefed on the abduction and arraignment of Nnamdi Kanu in Nigeria. It also confirmed that the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, a British citizen, was abducted in a country other than the United Kingdom to which Kanu traveled on a British passport. The group questions the specter of illegal abduction and the international gangsterism that violates the spirit of the process of extradition.




The Statement Reads;




World Igbo Congress (WIC) has been briefed on the abduction and arraignment of Nnamdi Kanu in Nigeria and that court hearing is scheduled for July 26, 2021.

It has also been confirmed to us that Nnamdi Kanu, a British citizen, was abducted in a country other than the United Kingdom to which he travelled on British passport.

Consequently, this raises the specter of illegal abduction and international gangsterism that violates the spirit of the process of extradition.

World Igbo Congress, therefore, calls on:

1. The Nigerian Government to ensure that Nnamdi Kanu is treated in accordance with the rules and international conventions that guarantee that his rights and personal safety are protected.

2. The British government to stand up and defend the right of her citizen. The UK government needs to investigate the collusion of any other country or party in this saga.

3. The government of the US, the UN and the international community to take note of the ongoing abuse of human rights in Nigeria including this matter of abduction of Nnamdi Kanu.

4. The Igbo at home and abroad to see this as a continuation of the different strokes for different folks, which has characterized the approach of the current administration of the Federal Government of Nigeria in dealing with national issues.

The world has taken notice of the disparity in the treatment of Boko Haram insurgents and Fulani herdsmen who have been designated as terrorists by known international agencies.

These killers are routinely arrested, compensated, released and oftentimes absorbed into the Nigerian security services. On the other hand, the Igbo has been subjected to massive shoot-at-sight order, arrests and abduction.

We would like to emphasize that no government in the world or any international security agency has designated IPOB as a terrorist organization and Nnamdi Kanu is not on any terrorist watchlist anywhere in the world.

5. All Igbo worldwide to remain calm. The rights of the Igbo must be protected and the Igbo cannot be subjugated forever.

SIGNED:
Basil Onwukwe
Public Relations Officer
Prof. Anthony Ejiofor
Chairman.
