Deji Adeyanju, the leader of the indigenous Biafra people, IPOB, accused leaders in the southeast not of stands for Nnamdi Kanu.
Adeyanju claimed that leaders of the South-East feared to speak out against the IPOB leader’s ‘illegal’ arrest.
He noted that Eyinnaya Abaribe, Senate Leader of the Minority; Nyesom Wike, Governor of the state of Rivers; Samuel Ortom, his counterpart of Benue State spoke for Kanu and asked why other stakeholders in the region including governors have decided to remain still.
The convoy of Nigerians concerned insisted on the North standing behind the murderous herdsmen in a tweet.
He wrote: “Igbo leaders so afraid to speak up on the Nnamdi Kanu issue. Almost the entire North still standing with killer herdsmen. Only Abaribe, Ortom and Wike have spoken up.”
Last week, Kanu was arrested and repatriated by the Nigerian Government in alliance with foreign security.
He was returned to Nigeria to continue the Abuja Federal High Court proceedings before Judge Binta Nyako.
The IPOB leader was brought before Judge Nyako on Tuesday who ordered him to be detained under the custody of the DSS during a postponement of the case.
