Apex Igbo Socio-cultural Organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide Ndigbo, has accused former President Muhammadu Buhari of alleged involvement in the international conspiracy against the Igbos during his tenure.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo said that the connivance between the United Kingdom and the Nigerian Government under Buhari’s watch orchestrated the capture of IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in Kenya.
A statement signed on Tuesday by Ohanaeze’s factional Secretary-general, Mazi Okechukwu lsiguzoro, stated that it was rumoured that the UK government directed Buhari to subject Kanu to endless trials rather than killing him, based on the perceived implications and consequences such act would have on the unity of the nation.
“Our suspicions have now transformed into certainties. Thanks to the spine-tingling revelations made by Mr. Femi Adeshina, the former spokesperson to Former President Buhari. Adeshina chillingly admitted that “there was indeed a contemplation of the killing option before adopting the strategy of subjecting Nnamdi Kanu to court prosecution.
“The admissions now expose the nefarious web in which Buhari’s government entangled itself, willingly executing the scripts of international conspirators against the Igbo in their unjust arrest of Nnamdi Kanu. The blatant disregard for court pronouncements and verdicts in favour of Nnamdi Kanu’s release further strengthens the suspicions, suggesting a sordid partnership with international forces.
The body urged Former President Buhari to cleanse his tarnished name and urgently address the egregious allegations.
“Ndigbo and all Nigerians are well aware of the underlying facts surrounding the deplorable situation. It was Buhari’s government that provided the oxygen to the flames of self-determination struggles in southern Nigeria, an offshoot of the heinous criminal activities and genocidal killings unleashed upon us by suspected Fulani herdsmen in the Eastern and Western regions.
The Organisation mated that Buhari’s deliberate silence and insidious attempts to empower Myetti Allah groups through initiatives like RUGA in the south have birthed defiant resistance movements, forcing separatist groups, like Sunday Igboho in the Southwest and IPOB under Nnamdi Kanu’s visionary leadership in the Southeast to arise.
“Let it be known, that without Buhari’s wholehearted dedication to the “Fulanization Agenda,” Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho would not have metamorphosed into the heroes they are today. They are, in essence, children of dire circumstances, and Buhari must courageously step forward to address the Nigerian people.
Ohanaeze implored Former President Buhari to summon the righteous resolve within him and provide Nigerians with an unambiguous account of the truth.
