With the support of the Northern Consensus Movement, a coalition of 75 northern groups has invested 100 million naira to anyone who can propose the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Continue the trial for suspected treason. NCM specifically accused Kanu and the activist IPOB of the Eastern Security Network for planning a series of recent attacks on communities in the north of the southeast.
A week ago, the Igbo Elders Committee issued a statement stating that more than 5,000 Igbo youths were killed and more than 10,000 were thrown into detention camps during the ongoing special security operation in the southeast. ECM spokesperson Dr. Awwal Abdullahi Aliyu, at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday evening, urged the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union to facilitate Kanu’s repatriation to Nigeria in response to allegations of treason against him.
He said, “The Northern Consensus Movement, an amalgamation of more than 75 civil society groups of Northern extraction, has taken it upon ourselves, as active citizens of this country, Nigeria, to state in unequivocal terms that: “We are declaring Nnamdi Kanu wanted for crimes against humanity and for instigating the killing of innocent Northerners in the South East via his hate speech. We want him to answer for the killing and destruction of Northerners residing and undertaking lawful businesses in the South Eastern part of Nigeria.
So, we are placing a bounty of N100m as an offer to anyone who can produce him alive, hale, hearty, and uninjured to us for onward delivery to the security agencies for the continuation of his prosecution.
“We call on both the US, the UK, and the EU, a champions of democracy, rule of law, and freedoms of speech and expression to kindly and humble respect Nigeria’s sovereignty and facilitate the repatriation of Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria
This is so he can face his treason, and possibly fresh terrorism and genocide charges against innocent citizens of Nigeria.”
