The Southeast caucus of the National Assembly has concluded plans to meet with the Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government over the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu.
Recall that IPOB’s Nnamdi Kanu is currently facing trial for treason, incitement, amongst others after he was reportedly extradited back to the country from Kenya.
Naija News reports that federal lawmakers have now resolved to seek a political solution to Nnamdi Kanu’s issues.
The lawmakers arrived at this conclusion during a meeting held in Abuja, at the residence of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
In a communique made available to newsmen on Wednesday, the Southeast caucus agreed to set up a committee to dialogue with the federal government and other stakeholders.
“We elaborately discussed the issue of Mazi Nnamdi and resolved to intervene,” the lawmakers said
“To this end we resolved to set up a committee to constructively interface with relevant stakeholders, the Federal Government and its relevant agencies towards finding a political solution. We will keep Ndigbo abreast of developments in regard.”
Pro-Biafra group, IPOB, were also commended by the lawmakers for suspending the sit-at-home order imposed across the Southeast.
The caucus noted, “with delight that IPOB has called off the Monday sit-at-home order and resolved to ensure that nobody uses them as façades to bring ruination on Igbo land.
“Call on our people to go about their lawful businesses and enjoin our governors and the security agencies to rebuild confidence in our people by not only ensuring the security of their lives and properties, but also ensuring that our people feel safe as they undertake their legitimate businesses.”
