Ohanaeze Ndigbo Speaks To Buhari On Detained Igbo Youths » Naijaloaded

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that Igbo youths being held in various detention facilities across the country by security agents are free.

Prof. George Obiozor, the President of Ohanaeze, made the call on Thursday while welcoming President Buhari to Owerri, the Imo State capital.

He claimed the Igbo people are not separatists, stressing that they would continue to be part of Nigeria as long as there is justice in the country.

He said,

“Your Excellency, the most urgent and imperative need of Ndigbo today is security. The security of Ndigbo in Nigeria and beyond has become a compelling primary responsibility of serious concern for Ndigbo.

“Regrettably our South East Zone has recently become a theatre of conflict, negating the peace-loving nature of our people.

“In this context, Ohanaeze Ndigbo calls for the establishment of a zonal and state police apparatus to support and complement the existing federal security architecture.

“It is in this same vein that Ohanaeze Ndigbo appeals to you, Mr. President, to see to the release of Igbo youths detained by various security agencies across the country.”

President Buhari on Thursday visited Imo State to commission some projects said to have been executed by the state governor, Hope Uzodinma.
