The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministries, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has slammed Igbo leaders for being silent over the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu.
Naija News reports that Nnamdi Kanu, who is the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is set to continue his trial on October 21.
The IPOB leader is facing charges at the Federal High Court, Abuja, bordering on terrorism, treason, incitement, amongst others.
Lawmakers from the southeast have recently come out to state that they are working behind the scenes to find a political solution to the continued incarceration of the pro-Biafra activist.
In a video posted on his ministries Facebook page on Friday, Father Mbaka urged Igbo leaders not to abandon Nnamdi Kanu.
He accused some Igbo leaders of refusing to help the IPOB leader because they want favours from the federal government.
Mbaka said: “I don’t know why our leaders who should be talking about their son are shying away from that. Somebody said your son is an evil man [and] should be killed. Will you sign that paper to kill your son?
“I don’t know how they understand my own stand, but I know God understands my position. I am soul-saver; I am a soul-winner. The Bible say ‘a good shepherd will leave 99, and begin to look for one that is lost’.
“One of us is missing. This is a culture of unity. Igbo people are bonded. Forget about what money is trying to do. We shall divide money, money shall not divide us. Political position shall not make us to merchandise our children. Because some people want to go to Abuja, they are ready to disown the youths. God in heaven is watching.”
