Nnamdi Kanu’s Continuous Detention Is Disrespectful To Igbo People — Ugochinyere |FS News

Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, the candidate of the Peo­ples Democratic Party (PDP) for Ideato North/ South Federal Constit­uency in Imo State, has described the continued detention of the lead­er of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, despite three different court orders as disrespect to the Igbo people.
FS News reports that Berating the President Muhammadu Buhari led-All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government on Friday, Ugochinyere urged the Igbo peo­ple to disrespect the Buhari-led APC government with zero vote in 2023.
Recall that a Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja had acquitted Kanu of the terrorism charges filed against him and ordered his release.
The Federal High Court, Umuahia, also ordered Kanu’s release and ordered the Federal Government to return him to Kenya w. he was illegally extradited.
A High Court in Abia State had also given a judgment in favour of the IPOB leader.
Ugochinyere, in a press state­ment on Friday, said Kanu’s con­tinued detention despite these court judgments shows that the government does not have respect for the rule of law.
He added that the develop­ment is proof that President Buhari does not have regard for the Igbo people.
He said for Buhari’s disdain towards them, Igbo, Ideato and Imo people should pay him and his party by mobilising mas­sively against all candidates of the ruling party, the APC at all levels.
The statement read: “I have observed with dismay the con­tinued detention of Mazi Nnam­di Kanu by the Federal Govern­ment despite three recent court judgments in his favour.
“This total disregard for court judgments by this ad­ministration has shown that the APC government does not have an iota of respect for the judiciary.
“Not only that, but this de­velopment is also an indication that President Buhari is calling Igbos fools.
“It is surprising that the Pres­ident can be sanctioning the reckless and illegal activities of his men and agencies despite saying openly many times that only the court will determine Mazi Kanu’s fate.
“This government’s action is an affront to Igbos, especially our traditional and religious leaders, who have approached Buhari on Kanu’s issue many times with him insisting that the court will be allowed to handle the case.
“This hate and disrespect for the Igbos by the President and his government should not be allowed to continue without the Igbos replying in a manner that will show their annoyance.
“I, t.fore, call on all Igbos to reply to Buhari in the same coin by rejecting all APC can­didates at all levels at the poll.
“Igbos should give zero vote to all APC candidates from top to bottom to dis. their griev­ances against the government.
“A government that does not respect the Igbos and their leaders should not be rewarded with votes.”
