The apex Socio-political youth group in the South East geopolitical zone, Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, (COSEYL) has condemned in totality the impersonalised treatment meted out to Nnamdi Kanu today by Nigerian Security, saying that Nnamdi Azikiwe was never subjected to such torture by Colonial Masters when he got Independence for Nigeria in 1960.q1qq
In a release titled: ‘ARREST, EXTRADITION AND TORTURE OF NNAMDI KANU PLOT TO COMMIT GENOCIDE qAGAINST NDIGBO’, and made made available to newsmen in Abia State, the group who blankly stated they their sympathy was not for the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB rather for the leader who has the Igbo blood running in his veins.
The release co-signed by Hon. Goodluck Ibem and Comrade, Kanice Igwe, the President-General and Secretary-General of (COSEYL), argued that the President Mohammadu Buhari’s led administration had from inception, ‘swept under the carpet’ all manners of atrocities perpetrated by his Fulani brethren but had not hesitated in unleashing the Security Operatives on Kanu, a renowned freedom fighter.
The group reminded the federal government of how Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe fought and brought Nigerian Independence in 1960.
The group said: “Mallam Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna state prior to the 2019 general elections threatened to kill international observers, package their bodies in a bag and send them back to the United States if they dare try to stop his party from rigging elections to their favour, the Interpol and Nigerian security forces clapped for him and commended him for threatening international election observers because he is a Fulani man who has the backing of the government to kill people anyhow.”
“The colonial masters then, did not subject him to the Kind of torture and dehumanizing treatment meted out to Nnamdi Kanu today by Nigerian Security forces because it was his right to demand for the independent of Nigeria as a country.”
The group, amidst heartache urged Ndigbo worldwide to stand up for their defense, lamenting that the arrest and torture of Kanu is a depiction of the ploys of the Buhari led administration to “perfect plans to start assassinating her leaders and the people”, they said, while describing it as a plot to silent the race forever.”
The release read in detail:
The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, the apex socio-political youth group in the South East geopolitical zone is alarmed over the dehumanizing treatment meted to the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by Interpol and Nigerian security forces because he is an Igboman .
Though we do not speak for IPOB, it is the right of anyone or group of Persons to demand for freedom or to go his or her separate way if he feels that his well-being is not guaranteed. Nnamdi Kanu and his group have the rights to demand for whatever thing he deserves because it is their fundamental human right .
Mallam Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna state prior to the 2019 general elections threatened to kill international observers, package their bodies in a bag and send them back to the United States if they dare try to stop his party from rigging elections to their favour, the Interpol and Nigerian security forces clapped for him and commended him for threatening international election observers because he is a Fulani man who has the backing of the government to kill people anyhow.
Sheikh Abubakak Gumi is a known sponsor and supporter of murderous Fulani herdsmen/kidnappers who helps to negotiate ransom for murderous Fulani herdsmen/kidnappers . DSS and other security agencies have never for one day arrested him to answer for his crimes. Rather, the respect him , drink tea with him and exchange banters with him because he is a Muslim Fulani man .
The Fulani Herdsmen kill, rape and maim indigenes of Southern Nigerians on daily basis and non of them have been arrested or prosecuted by the Nigerian security agencies.
Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest is a direct question to Ndigbo that “how dare you speak when we kill, maim and rape your women”. Nnamdi Kanu is arrest and dehumanized because he dared asked questions why Fulani herdsmen are killing people and nothing is done to them by the federal government.
The Southern Governors placed a ban on open grazing in the Southern part of the country as Chief Security officers of their various states in order to stop the killings by Fulani herdsmen in the South, their leader who is the president of Miyetti Allah, Alhaji Bodejo openly told the Fulani herdsmen to disregard the order and he is moving about freely because he is a Fulani man.
The president of Miyetti Allah, Alhaji Bodejo has severally and openly ordered his members to kill other Nigerians from other tribes, which they carried out successful and he was not been arrested or prosecuted.
The arrest of Nnamdi Kanu is to prepare grounds for the massacre of Igbos . The involvement of the British government and Interpol in his arrest is a clear plot to commit genocide and pogrom against the people of South East geopolitical zone. Indeed, Ndigbo has been marked for extinction by the Nigerian government .
The arrest and torture of Kanu is an evil plot to silence Ndigbo forever.
“We call on Ndigbo to rise up and defend themselves because they have perfected plans to start assassinating Igbo leaders and her people.”
