Abaribe Blames Continued Incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu for Instability in S’East



Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has identified the continued incarceration of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) , Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as the major cause of instability in the South East zone.

Senator Abaribe who stated this as a Keynote Speaker at the inaugural Ikengaonline Town Hall virtual meeting, urged the Federal Government to heed the clamour for his release.

He said: ”The big elephant in the room which is the incarceration of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has continued to to put a dampener on everything concerning the South East.

”Why will our people now every Monday decide to sit at home? Those who try to come out get attacked by misguided elements? Government can no longer control the people on Mondays.

”This continues to make the South East a place that nobody is willing to invest in.”

Senator Abaribe observed with concern, lack of unity and coordination among South East Governors, saying that the zone is like a rudderless ship without any bearing.
