The Pan Igbo social-cultural organization, Ohaneze Ndigbo, has revealed that it has started talks with the presidency to ensure the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the director of radio Biafra, from detention.
The organization has also noted that it will commence discussions with the notable traditional rulers in Nigeria for the same purpose.
Speaking with journalists on Friday, February 26, in Abuja, the Ohaneze said that the talks between its leaders and top presidential officials were already at advanced stage.
Although the organization did not give details of the discussions, it expressed optimism that something positive would come out of the consultations very soon.
According to the group, the course of action is to employ political solution to the problem.
The Nation reports that Mazi Okechukwu Iziguzoro, the national president of the group youth wing, confirmed that such traditional rulers like the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar; Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, and the monarch of the Bornu Kingdom, had been already consulted on the issue.
Iziguzoro said that Igbo leaders assured the presidency and the royal fathers that they were prepared to prevail on Kanu to discontinue the operation of Radio Biafra if he is released.
Meanwhile, members of the Indigenous People of Biafra in Anambra have embarked on spiritual warfare in its agitation for the release of their embattled leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The prayer and fasting session were held in different parts of the state on Wednesday, February 24.
