The northern group observed that the calls for Kanu’s release without trial by Ndigbo leaders and groups have grown louder since the February 25 presidential election and the consequent emergence of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as President-elect.

It added: “Instead, the President should remain resolute in ensuring the diligent prosecution of Kanu, his sponsors, backers and collaborators in the heinous crimes against the Nigerian state and innocent Nigerian citizens.

“In order to prevent a descent into anarchy at this day and age, and to forestall mass killings, untold sufferings and atrocities, the federal government must not accede to the current pressure by Ohanaeze and its ilk to secure the unconditional release of the leader of a group that has been duly proscribed as terrorist.”
