Uchechi Kanu, wife of the freed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has sent a piece of advice to the Nigerian authorities.
Much as she would not settle for anything less unless Biafra is restored also reminded the Nigerian government of the compelling need to urgently look into and address the issues that make her husband differ with the Nigerian government if they don’t like the quest for self-determination.
She made this disclosure in a chat with Saturday Sun titled ”BIAFRA STRUGGLE IS WAR –Uchechi, IPOB leader’s wife” published on May 13, 2017.
Uchechi denounced Federal Government interference in the judicial process when cases are before the courts which she says does not augur well for any civilised society.
When asked if she has any advice for the Nigerian government, she said, ”Oh yes, like I have always said, for us to work according to civilisation or to behave like civilised people; we need to work in line with the law and order. If you look at what is happening, there is barbarism everywhere, there are inhuman actions meted to people who don’t deserve it. But, because there is law in place to be followed, to guide people, this is where you see some countries are much more civilised than others because they go by the law.
So, all I’m asking the Nigerian government is to go by the rule of law.
Continuing she said, ”If you say someone has offended the government and you take the person to court, you’ve only brought that person to court for the law to take its course, so, do not interfere in whatever way, just let the court give its ruling.”
Uchechi reminded the Nigerian government of the urgent need to look into the burning issues that pitched her husband against the Nigerian authorities.
She said, ”And also in regard to that, it is also in line with one having the right to self-determination. So, if they are looking at the law, they can see that someone is right for asking for self-determination. It is not a crime, if you don’t like it you look at the reasons why the person is asking for that.”
