Mixed reactions have followed the recent call by the Coalition of Northern Groups CNG, asking the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Tinubu not to release the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been in detention at the Department of State Service.

The group urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu not to fall for the antics of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, insisting that the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu must face trial.

CNG in a statement on Saturday by its spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, lamented the level of insecurity plaguing the south-eastern part of Nigeria, calling on the federal authorities to resist campaigns of blackmail using Kanu’s release as a precondition for sustainable peace in the land.

Suleiman further charged the federal authorities to disregard the unpatriotic calls by the Igbo leaders for Kanu’s release, and to remain resolute in seeing through his prosecution.

Reacting to the statement, Special Counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Barrister Aloy Ejimakor has called for the prosecution Of the Coalition of Northern Group for overseeing the activities of its groups including the Herdsmen.

According to Barrister Ejimakor, as an umbrella body of the Northern group which includes the Herdsmen, CNG is vicariously complicit in every murder committed by the herdsmen and thus must face trial as an accessory to murder.
