President Muham­madu Buhari is under pressure to release Nnamdi Kanu, follow­ing ceaseless efforts from prominent Igbo person­alities and groups as well as Civil Society groups, The AUTHORITY has gath­ered.
The pressure, accord­ing to The AUTHORITY sources is not unconnect­ed with the efforts being made by some Igbo lead­ers and groups to draw the attention of the incom­ing American President Donald Trump what they described as the ugly situa­tion of things with the Igbo in Nigeria.
Among the Igbo lead­ers and groups who are involved in this process are the South east senators in the National Assembly who met with president Buhari on a visit to Aso Rock recently, the Alaigbo Development Founda­tion, (ADF) and the Inter­national Society for Civil Liberty (Intersociety) and Rule of Law among others.
ADF, in a congratulatory message to Trump, present­ed the incoming American leader with the true picture of the Igbo plight in Ni­geria citing marginalisa­tion of the southeast in the area of road infrastructure, short changing of the Igbo on government appoint­ments and massive rate of unemployment of youth from the southeast region among others.
On its part, the Inter­society, in a letter to the United Nations with cop­ies to relevant global in­stitutions, informed that the continued detention of Kanu, shootings of un­armed protesters and the Shi’ite Muslims in the North has portrayed Bu­hari’s administration as purely “anti-people” that doesn’t respect the right of the people that elected him into power.
