Ohanaeze Youth Volunteer Force Backs Biafra Agitators, Calls for Immediate Release of Nnamdi Kanu, Ben Onwuka and others

Ohanaeze Youth voluteer force, a coalition of Igbo youth organizations, has thrown its weight behind renewed agitation for realization of  Soverign State of Biafra through peaceful means devoid of any form of violence.
The Deputy National Chairman of the group, Mr Arthur Obiorah, who disclosed this at a news conference after a joint meeting with other Igbo youth groups in Awka
also demanded for unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, Ben Onwuka and other pro-Biafran agitators.
He further criticised the alleged killings, maiming and detentions of the peace loving and non-violence Biafra agitators, and urged President Buhari to negotiate with the pro-Biafrans.
“The Federal Government should instead of carrying out anti-social war on the peace loving Biafra agitators make conscientious study on why the Igbo youths and the rest Easterners are spoiling for the restoration of the nation of Biafra, and commence a no-hold-barred negotiation that may see all the Nigerian nationalities meeting and dialoguing on how to come out of the present political impasse.
“The Federal Government should toe the part of dialogue as a tactical way of untangling herself from the billowing political and security instabilities threatening the humanity of all. We are committed to peace, justice, equity and fairness. All Igbos and Nigerians should embrace same for our general good,” the group stated.

Similarly, Obiorah lampooned some Igbo elders who use what he termed “provocative and seditious” languages against the pro-Biafra agitators, noting that such people were not representing the Igbo nation, but their own selfish interest.
He urged elders of the South-East region to unite and speak with one voice in the interest of the people and not otherwise.
