Igbo youths knock Northern group over stance on Nnamdi Kanu’s release
The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, has lambasted the Coalition of Northern Group, CNG, over its stance on the renewed call for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
DAILY POST reports that the spokesperson of CNG, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, had in a statement on Saturday, called on the Federal Government to disregard the call for Kanu’s release, describing it as unpatriotic.
The group urged the FG to prosecute Nnamdi Kanu to a logical conclusion, saying it would be bad to set a bad precedent of regional leaders interfering with the course of justice.
Reacting, COSEYL, in a statement by its President-General, Goodluck Ibem, on Wednesday, tackled the Northern group, saying if they were patriotic enough, they would have condemned the incessant killings going on in many parts of the nation.
“The federal government is duty bound by law to obey the Federal Court of Appeal Judgement releasing Kanu from DSS custody before appealing the matter at the Supreme Court. Anything short of that is an illegality.
“The same CNG claiming to be patriotic have never for once condemned the heinous killings by murderous Fulani terrorists and Jihadists parading as herdsmen.
“The failure to obey court judgement releasing Nnamdi Kanu will cause mishaps and unnecessary devastation and drive the country over the brink into a catastrophe as strict obedience to court judgements remains the centripetal force holding the sovereignty of any nation,” the statement read.
