South East Traditional Rulers

Traditional rulers have urged Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu, de-proscribe IPOB and de-escalate military in the South East.

Angeladaviesblog reports that traditional rulers of the South East States, under the platform of the South East Council of Traditional Rulers, have urged President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), from detention into the hands of the Igbo traditional and religious leaders.

They also want the President to show sagacity, pragmatism, statesmanship and fatherliness by causing the IPOB to be de-proscribed as a terrorist organization.

The traditional rulers made their demands in a statement issued on Monday and signed by H.M Eze Joseph N. Nwabeke, the Chairman, Abia State Tradtional Rulers Council, H.M. Obi Nnaemeka Achebe, CFR, the Chairman, Anambra State Traditional Rulers Council, H.M Igwe Amb. L.O.C. Agubuzu, OON, the Chairman, Enugu State Traditional Rulers Council and H.M. Eze Dr. E.C. Okeke, the Chairman Imo State Traditional Rulers Council.

The monarchs also want Buhari to de-escalate the military presence in the South East Zone as normalcy returns.

This is coming a few days ahead of Kanu’s trial on Thursday, October 21.

The statement partly read, “His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, to show sagacity, pragmatism, statesmanship and fatherliness by causing the IPOB to be de-proscribed as a terrorist organization.

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to be released from detention into the hands of the Igbo traditional and religious leaders.
