The Director General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechukwu, has commended the Ohanaeze Ndigbo leadership, headed by Professor George Obiozor, for their patriotic, constitutional and democratic stance on the trial of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Speaking with journalists in Enugu on Tuesday, Okechukwu, who is also a founding member of All Progressives Congress (APC), said:
“I think it’s appropriate for the Professor George Obiozor-led Ohaneze to adopt patriotic, constitutional and democratic stance on our brother, Nnamdi Kanu’s matter.
“I am on this page with Ohanaeze that due process of the law should be strictly adhered to, which they capped with setting up a legal team to monitor the court proceedings. I salute their candour, unlike others who are sentimental.”
It could be recalled that Ohaneze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, has called for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Kanu to be tried within the ambit of the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and in line with global best practices.
