In a recent statement, the group revealed that it is bothered about the military Presence at Kanu’s Village, Afaraukwu Umuahia, Abia State a few days to the burial of HRM Eze I O Kanu and his wife.
According to Ohaneze Ndigbo, Buhari must think about the international damage this will cause to the reputation and image of Nigeria as the world is currently watching.
The group added that human rights violations and abuse of Nigeria’s Military before and after the burial ceremony will not speak well of the government.
The statement read, “There’s nothing amiss if President Muhammadu Buhari in person or through high Power delegation attend and send Condolence Message to the people of Afaraukwu Umuahia on the Demise of their Paramount Ruler, HRM Eze Kanu and his wife, as Such Presidential gesture will portray him as a good Father of the Nation, irrespective of the Self-evident of Ipob’s stance on Self-determination and injustice melted by systematic structure against Igbos after 50 years of Biafra War Civil, The Presidential Pardon to Nnamdi Kanu and release of other Biafra agitators in detention and sending delegation to the burial will be applauded by both International Community and Nigerians at home, and will attract more respect for President Muhammadu Buhari, as Such Presidential gesture granted to Bashorun MKO Abiola, to appease the Yorubas should be applied now to restore more Confidence of Igbos in this regime… what’s good to the goose is also good for the Gander”.
“OYC salute Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for the kind gesture granted to the Afaraukwu Umuahia Community through the appeal made by the President General and the Prime Minister of the Community for a solid Road Construction for the community in preparation for the late Paramount Ruler HRM Eze Kanu and his wife burial, OYC Urge other South-East Governors to rebuild the palace destroyed during the operation python dance. We Urge Biafra agitators to slow down on any action that might attract negative story during the burial, there’s should be no display of Biafra flags and Uniforms, protests and other things that might give Security agents the impetus to Wade in and wreak havoc during the burial… OYC console Ndigbo and Kanu Family on the Demise of the Paramount Ruler HRM Eze Kanu and his wife… May God grant them the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss”.
