Solidarity: Abia Royal Fathers storm Abuja Court of Appeal over Mazi Nnamdi Kanu
Royal fathers of Igbo land under the name – Traditional Rulers of Ikwuano/Umuahia Supreme Council, Monday, appeared at Appeal Court in Abuja in solidarity with their son Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The traditional rulers include: HRM Eze Nnamdi Ofoegbu, Chairman Traditional Rulers of Ikwuano/Umuahia Supreme Council and also Chairman Ohuhu Council of Traditional Rulers; HRH Eze Ben Ogechi Oriaku, Dike 1 of Umudikeukwu modern kingdom and Deputy Chairman of Ikwuano Council of Traditional Rulers; HRM Eze (Sir) Innocent Nwaigwe, Secretary, Umuahia North Council of Traditional Rulers; Eze Iheanyichukwu Ezigbo, Chairman Ibeku Traditional Rulers Council; Eze Pastor Philip Ajomiwe, Immediate past Chairman Umuahia North Traditional Rulers Council and Eze Eddy Ibeabuchi, former Chairman Umuahia North Traditional Rulers Council.
The six Royal fathers from Abia State who were all dressed in their regal attires, who also spoke with some journalists, passionately demanded the release of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Recall that recently, traditional rulers and leaders of religious organizations in the South East zone had made a strong call for the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
Prominent personalities in the zone under the aegis of The South East Council of Traditional Rulers and Representatives of Igbo Archbishops and Bishops On Peace and Conflict Resolution made the call in a press release.
The press release, which was jointly signed by the traditional ruler of Onitsha, Obi Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe who is also the chairman of Anambra State Council of traditional rulers and co-signed by Rev. Dr. Chibuzo R. Opoko, Methodist Archbishop of Umuahia; H.M. Igwe Amb L. O. C. Agubuzu, Chairman, Enugu State Traditional Rulers Council and Most Rev. Dr. Valerian M. Okeke, Catholic Archbishop of Onitsha called for the release of Kanu.
Recall also that the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja had last week Thursday discharged and acquitted Kanu of charges preferred against him by the federal government.
