Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has approached President Muhammadu Buhari to permit the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, to address the media to stop the disarray encompassing the sit-at-home order in the South East.

This is following a progression of conflicts and targeted violence and attacks engineered by some armed supporters of the Finland-based Simon Ekpa.

Individuals living and doing business in the South East have been under attack lately as they can’t go about their legitimate businesses.

The IPOB’s leadership has, on many events, distanced itself from any sit-at-home, urging Nigerians residing in the zone to go about their legitimate business yet that has not halted the killing of individuals in the South East for the sake of sit-at-home.

There have been accounts of killings and mutilating of innocent Nigerians who alter the sit-at-home order for one explanation or the other, as the South East is closed down each Monday and on different occasions.

What’s more, presently HURIWA, through a statement signed by its national coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, is calling on Buhari to allow Kanu personally to address the media insisting and completely affirming the suspension of the sit-at-home order.

HURIWA has additionally criticised the law enforcement agents and the Department of State Services for the failure of intelligence to successfully stop from the beginning the many ridiculous attacks.

HURIWA accused the Police and the other security agencies in the South East of being happy watching the commoners being obliterated, degraded and practically nearly being wiped off the earth.

“The President should let Mazi Nnamdi Kanu speak to Igbo people to affirm or deny the report by his lawyers that he had ordered an end to the Sit-at-home order which one Mr. Simon Ekpa an alleged follower of the detained leader disputed and ordered for forceful implementation of the so called Sit-at-home order,” HURIWA pleaded.

The group additionally brought up that a live transmission by Kanu on the disarray encompassing the sit-at-home order would mollify the suspended movement and doubts “by some persons loyal to Simon Ekpa that Nnamdi Kanu did not order an end to the economically stagnating sit-at-home order in the South East of Nigeria.

“Secondly, just as was done in Ukraine, President Muhammadu Buhari should democratise arms licences so sane adult Nigerians can bear AK-47 and AK-49.

“If President Muhammadu Buhari is not the sponsor of the chaos in the South-East then let his government adopt a pragmatic approach such as permitting that Kanu addresses the media as a matter of extreme urgency to put an end to these killings,” it said.
