Obinwannem News Igbo Group Leaders Beg IPOB Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, not to attend his parent's burial

Imeobi Igbo Forum, an Igbo socio-cultural and political organization, has cautioned Mazi Nnamdi Kanu not to attend his parents burial to avoid being attacked by those after him, as we are just about three days to the burial ceremony of His Royal Highness, late Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and wife late Ugoeze Sally Nmeme Okwu Kanu of Afaraukwu community, Umuahia, Abia State, both parents of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Chief Mike Ikegulu-Onugha, the National Chairman of the forum, while addressing newsmen in Onitsha, Anambra State, said: “Kanu should steer clear of the burial arena until all the issues are resolved.”

“He should wait until the coast is clear for him to come back. The dead must be buried whether Nnamdi is around or not. If he comes home, it is an opportunity for those who are looking for him to get him.

“We should not wait until he returns before the dead are buried. Left for me, the government of the federation should allow him to come and bury his parents. I wish he will come and bury his parents the way I did mine.

“However, rather than come and get involved in all sorts of trouble and military things and all sorts of issues, it is better for him to keep off.”

He added that “The Federal Government should forgive a freedom fighter who is asking for a democratic/judicial means of independence. I see no harm in him, the President should pardon him to come back.”

The National Chairman of the forum also extended his sympathy to the family of Nnamdi Kanu over the loss of their parents and urged them to take heart adding that, “in all struggles, stories like these come up. These are stories that will be told better in life. His parents died in the struggle, let us not mince words about it. The struggle has taken a toll on them,” he further said.
