The leading Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has responded to the Federal High Court's decision to deny bail to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra. The court denied Kanu’s bail application on Tuesday, March 19, when he appeared before Justice Binta Nyako in FCT, Abuja.

Nyako ordered an intensified hearing of the Federal Government’s seven-count charge against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been in the custody of the Department of States Services since 29th June 2021.

However, Kanu’s case was postponed till April 17, 2024.

Commenting on the development in a statement signed by President-General Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, the group advised Nigerian youths to be patient.

Ohanaeze affirmed that Kanu’s followers should not engage in violence, stressing that the IPOB leader does not support bloodshed or firebombing.

National publicity secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Dr Alex Ogbonnia, said, "I wish to appeal to all Nigerian Youths to exercise some patience and steer clear of any behavior that would lead to the pulling down of properties or destroying lives. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has made known on numerous occasions that he will not back any act of bloodshed or firebombing.

We put our trust in the divine providence of almighty God and by God’s grace, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be free from detention very soon. I appeal to everyone to be patient.
