Imo West Senator of the PDP extraction, Samuel Anyanwu has reassured the IGBO Community of his steadfastness to continue fighting for their fundamental rights at the red chambers.
Anyanwu stated this while charging the Igbo Traditional rulers, Religious and Political leaders to unite against the injustice meted upon their Son and the entire IGBO Community.
In a release signed by Mr Ikenna Onuoha, Special Adviser (Media) to the Senator, Samuel Anyanwu maintained that despite the arrest of IPOB leader Mazi NNAMDI KANU which he described as controversial, Mazi Kanu remains innocent of the whole allegations against him until a competent court of higher jurisdiction proves otherwise.
He frowned at the arrest of the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB ), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian Government.
Samuel Anyanwu, a Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State, has therefore called on Traditional Rulers, religious and political leaders in the South-East to unite against the injustice meted out at the zone.
According to him, “when the Igbo begin to desert their own to incarcerate in the prison, strangers will seize to accord respect to them. All hands must be on deck irrespective of political affiliations to ensure the speedy release of one of our own. As an Igbo man, no way shall we deny him even if convicted”
While condemning the height of insecurity and unjust arrest of innocent citizens in the South-East zone, Senator Anyanwu enjoined Governors of Igbo extraction to urgently mediate into the matter to dialogue with the federal government, in order to fast-track his unconditional release.
The Senator however appealed to Igbo leaders not to shy away from identifying with him, maintaining that so far, no court in the land has convicted NNAMDI KANU of any offence and as such, should not be abandoned.
