Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Yoruba agitator, Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho, have been detained by the Federal Government, according to Chukwuemeka Ezeife, a Third Republic Governor of Anambra State.
Ezeife made the remark while emphasizing the importance of the Nigerian government engaging in talks with agitators.
The former governor also warned that the struggles of Kanu and the Igboho could hasten the clamor for Nigeria’s restructuring.
“Well, we are praying that the whole issue be converted to a dialogue. Let us dialogue on why IPOB is crying. Why are people like me saying the Federal Government is pushing us out of Nigeria? Can we dialogue in the interest of one peaceful Nigeria? Can we dialogue on developing, growing one Nigeria?
“So, the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu might fast-track achieving the restructuring and fairness of Nigerian system. As the same with (Sunday) Igboho in Yorubaland, seen as an opposition by the Nigerian government. Why would Yoruba or Igbo want to go if they are treated well because nobody is born into slavery in their own country?” Ezeife told SaharaReporters.
Kanu was recently rearrested from an undisclosed African country and was brought back to Nigeria through extraordinary rendition and remanded in DSS custody while, Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
