The arrest of Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe by the Department of State Services, DSS has attracted the reaction of Igbo socio political organization, Ohaneze Ndi Igbo.
In a statement, President of Ohaneze, Joh Nnia Nwodo called for the immediate release of the senator because he had no ability to produce the elusive leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra.
The statement read“The army in the name of ‘Operation Python Dance’ invaded Nnamdi’s home and destabilised normalcy there,”
“It is only the security agency that can disclose Nnamdi’s whereabouts. Senator Abaribe has no capacity, nor has any surety in the circumstances to know the whereabouts of Nnamdi Kanu. What happened in Umahia was an invasion, a war of a kind.
“Nnamdi may have been killed or captured in the imbroglio or even escaped into hiding.
“The onus lies on the security forces to disclose his whereabouts. The judiciary is beginning to tow the line of the executive by throwing the law overboard in matters that affect the south-east.
“We are all equal before the law. Senator Abaribe must be released forthwith,” he said.
