Hoodlums taking advantage of Kanu’s absence to wreck havoc – Eze Eri

Traditional ruler of Enugwu-Aguleri, Anambra East Council Area of Anambra State, Eze Chukwuemeka Eri has exonerated leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from the insecurity being witnessed in the South East. 

Eri stated this at his palace in Aguleri shortly after he returned from a meeting with Kanu in Abuja.

The monarch said the IPOB leader, through his solicitor, Barr. Ifeanyi Ejimofor invited him to come as “Aka Ji Ofor Igbo” to help reach out to Ndigbo that he is not behind the Monday Sit-at-home and security challenges in the Southeast including killings, bloodshed, kidnappings, robberies and molestations. 

He quoted Kanu as saying, “I don’t derive joy from seeing children being denied going to school and workers staying idle on Mondays that is the beginning of the week.

“My vision for fighting for the emancipation and liberation of the peoples of Biafra is not such that will enslave them to economic deprivation. 

“My suffering is not to destroy or harm rather to give voice to Ndi Igbo but some hoodlums have maximized my absence to perpetrate all forms of crime and criminality in the name of agitation.”

The Royal father further quoted Kanu to have appealed to Ndi Igbo to stop adhering to the Monday Sit-at-home order while showing love in unity as he warned those still enforcing the exercise to desist or face the full wrath of Ndi Igbo. 

Other monarchs who came to welcome Eze Eri from his journey, including the traditional rulers of Mkpunando and Enugwu-Otu  Aguleri, Igwe Johnson Mbanefo and Igwe Emmanuel Ejiofor corroborated Eze Eri’s position.

They regretted many lives that have been lost to the criminal activities of hoodlums who portray themselves as freedom fighters, painting Kanu’s name in the bad light

They reiterated the call on the federal government to release Mazi Kanu from custody.
