The Conference of Igbo Youth Professionals Worldwide has asked the United Kingdom and Israel to warn the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to desist from inciting violence in Nigeria, The Ngozi media blog reports.
The group alleged that the separatist leader had used the privilege of his dual citizenship to cause anarchy and insurrection by inciting members of the proscribed IPOB to violence.
The Igbo professionals reminded the UK and Israel that Nnamdi Kanu is still a fugitive to the Nigerian law, having jumped bail while facing criminal charges of treasonable felony, adding that the IPOB group which he represents remained proscribed by a Federal High Court in Abuja.
The worldwide youth organization in a statement on Sunday, by its President-General, Barr. Maduabuchi Nwodo, tasked Igbo people the world over to demonstrate courage by denouncing Kanu, IPOB, and all the violence they represent.
