Federal Government’s refusal to heed three subsisting Federal High Court orders granting Nnamdi Kanu, bail is bad for the country

Archbishop of Enugu, Ebonyi and Anambra States Ecclesiastical Province, Rt. Rev. Emmanel Chukwuma, yesterday, cautioned the Federal Government to tread softly on the issue given Niger Delta militants’ threat to blow up more crude oil installations if Kanu was not released.

The Niger Delta militants had a fortnight ago, warned the Federal Government to release the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB’s leader who is being detained by the Department of State Services, DSS, on alleged treason charges or risk destruction of crude oil installations,a threat they have made good so far.
The Anglican cleric, while addressing the press at Bishop’s Court in Enugu yesterday, revealed that the clergy men are in prayers for God’s intervention to touch President Muhammad Buhari’s heart to release Kanu, adding that an escalated militancy on oil installations will be worse than Boko-Haram.

According to Chukwuma, ”People are saying Igbo do not have a leader. I can stand in for his release as a church leader. We do not believe in confrontation. Rather, everthing should be done through dialogue. Igbo do not have somebody to vouch and also stand and defend the course of Ndigbo.

“We believe that if we work together with the federal government,Nigeria will be salvaged. It is important that government implements last year national conference decisions, that will be of great help to us.

South-East geopolitical zone is the most marginalized nationwide. We have been talking about an additional state. It’s part of the problem we are facing.

The religious leaders are standing firm in prayers for the present administration and also for Kanu’s release so that there will be peace. “We are appealing to the president not to allow bad advisers make him vindictive and retaliative in certain areas which may jeopardize people’s impression about this government.
