Group wants Kanu’s bail conditions relaxed

Igboezue International, a socio-cultural organization that crusades for the betterment of the people of South  East, has added its voice to call for the Federal Government to relax the bail conditions issued to Chief Nnamdi Kanu of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) by an Abuja based High Court.
The group in a two page press released signed by High chief Pius Uchenna Okoye, the National President, stated: “we condemn the bail conditions, which to us is not only stringent  but repugnant to natural justice, equity and good conscience as it also tantamount infringement on Kanu’s  fundamental human rights of freedom of liberty and association as enshrined under Chapter 4 of 1979  and 1999 constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria ”
They, therefore, called for immediate relaxation or unconditional granting of bail to Chief Kanu and other non-violent freedom fighters still in detention.
They pointed out that the relaxation of the bail conditions will be in the overall interest of national peace and brotherly accommodation, noting that he is still innocent in the eyes of the law until proved guilty by competent court of jurisdiction.
The group equally demanded for the immediate release of all members of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and others Pro-Biafra group members held in various police cells and detention camps, and in the course of their non-violent demand for the granting of independent to their ideal nation.
The group further said that “It is part of their fundament human rights as guaranteed in United Nation’s Charter of Equity of which Nigeria is a signatory to it. It sounds absurd, surprising and ridiculous if Nigerian Government  will eat its own vomit ”
The group expressed gratitude to Gov. Ayo Peter Fayose, of Ekiti State, former Gov. Orji Uzor Kalu, of AbiA State and Senator Ike Ekweremadu, the Deputy Senate President as among other eminent Nigerians that facilitated the release of the IPOB Leader.
