The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has expressed their displeasures over Nnamdi Kanu’s continued detention by the Department of State Security (DSS), and as well raised concerns over the Nigerian government’s disobedience to court orders on the release and freedom of Kanu.
The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has asked the Nigerian government to immediately grant the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, access to quality medical services and subsequently release him unconditionally as ordered by the court.
The organisation in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mazi Chika Adiele, (Okwuru Igbo) therefore called on the Nigerian government to address Kanu’s deteriorating health challenge by allowing the IPOB leader to go for medical treatment urgently, saying that Kanu’s life was at stake if not given urgent access to effective medical attention.”
Adiele stated that “Rising from a National Executive Council (NEC) Meeting held at the National Secretariat of Ohanaeze, 7 Park Avenue Enugu, the Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo Youth Wing Worldwide led by Mazi Livinus Obasi Onu Esq., gave the following Press Release.”

“In strong terms, we frown at the level of injustices meted out on our Brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, especially as it borders on his health and the Federal Government’s continuous denial to obey court orders.”
“Security of lives and properties is the fundamental responsibility of every government, and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s life is now at stake, if not given urgent access to effective medical attention, even as the Executive Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has accepted to stand surety for him.”
“His health is paramount to the unity and stability of our dear country Nigeria, and to the millions of Igbo youths within and outside Nigeria.”
“In patriotism, and enhancing to Rule of Law, and for Peace and Stability to be sustained in Nigeria, we admonish the appropriate quarters of the Federal Government, to responsibly grant Mazi Nnamdi Kanu access to necessary medical attention, in order to ascertain his health status and subsequently release him unconditionally.”
