The Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to unconditionally release the director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, from detention.



Kanu, who has been in detention after he was arraigned in court by the Federal Government, is accused of treasonable felony and other offences bordering on their agitation for secession ‎of the Republic of Biafra from Nigeria.
In a statement issued by the President of the OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, in Enugu on Monday, the group said such step would help in calming frayed nerves across the South-East and the South-South region.

‎“the continuous detention of Nnamdi Kanu is in no small measure contributing to the volatile security situation in the Southern Nigeria,” he said.

“On so many occasions, several agitating groups have given his detention as one of the many reasons behind their activities.

“In the light of the above, we urge the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to give peace a chance by enabling an atmosphere of dialogue.

“Both the international conventions and the Nigerian Constitution allow for self determination.
However, we insist that such much be done with due regard to the laws of the land.
“We, therefore, urge the present government to unconditionally free Kanu from detention.

“The government should take our assurances that we shall make efforts that no one take up arms against the government‎. We say this because the IPOB, to which Kanu is a member, has remained non-violent and peaceful”, he added.
