Abide By Nigeria Law, Southeast Senators Tell Kanu
The Southeast senators have told Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu to abide by Nigeria laws and desist from violence.
The lawmakers under the Southeast Caucus urged the IPOB leader and other members of the group not to heat up the polity as they promised to represent their interest at the National Assembly.
Led by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, the senators told IPOB to ensure that they act and conform with the rule of law while trying to express themselves.
The meeting, which was held at Kanu’s residence in Ohuru, Obingwa country home in Abia State emphasized on the rights of other Nigerians who despite their own grievances had not taken to violence.
The senators said that the IPOB should not abridge the rights of other ethnic groups while fighting for their own rights.
According to him, “it is a majority consensus that all of us desire unity and a peaceful Nigeria where equity and fairness is entrenched and where no group or region would be treated as second class citizens.”
Abaribe said that the lawmakers would work assiduously to ensure unity, justice and peace among Nigerians, adding, “All what we desire is equity, justice and fairness for our people and all Nigerians.”
Reacting, Kanu said that the IPOB had not been violent and would not use such strategy to actualize its mission.
