Politician and businessman, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop treating the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kalu, as a hero.
Iwuanyanwu advised President Buhari not to treat the IPOB leader as an important personality by keeping him in detention for months but to quickly try him in court and trash the case.
Iwuanyanwu, who spoke on Friday at an NUJ meeting in Owerri, Imo state capital, said Igbo desired to produce the president of Nigeria and not to separate from it.
He said, “Igbo people are majority tribe in Nigeria. We are everywhere and doing greatly.”
He reiterated his call to President Buhari to quickly summon a meeting of elders in the country in order to find a permanent solution to the Niger Delta problems and insurgency.
