Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to grant Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the opportunity to address the people of the South-East before the upcoming election in March.
This comes as the group has accused Finland-based Simon Ekpa of sponsoring the unknown gunmen causing chaos across the Southeast.
Ekpa, who used to be a self-styled disciple of Kanu, was suspended by the separatist group due to insubordination.
Despite his suspension, Ekpa has continued his Biafra agitation and ordered sit-at-home in the Southeast, leading Ohanaeze Ndigbo to place a $50,000 bounty on him.
It has been noted that the killing in the Southeast has become more frequent since the arrest and detention of Kanu in June 2022.

The video of unknown gunmen beheading Chris Ohizu, the Chairman of Ideato North Local Government of Imo State, recently surfaced online, adding to the list of killings in the Southeast.
Although the gunmen have denied links to IPOB, some stakeholders in the Southeast have accused Ekpa of supporting them.
Isiguzoro believes that the killings and insecurity in the Southeast can be stopped if Buhari allows the IPOB leader to address Nigerians.
He further stated that the only way to end Ekpa’s madness is for Buhari to allow Kanu to have a five-minute broadcast to talk to the people of the Southeast, as this would assure them that the messages are from Kanu himself.
