Ohanaeze slams Malami for ‘blaming Kanu for every crime in Nigeria’

Ohanaeze slams Malami for ‘blaming Kanu for every crime in Nigeria’

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze, on Friday, October 22, criticised the Attorney General, Abubakar Malami, for blaming the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, for every crime in Nigeria.

1st News had reported that Malami accused the IPO leader for the increase in violence in the South-East region; which led to attacks on prison and INEC facilities.

However, the Ohanaeze spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia, in an interview said, “Our understanding of Malami’s address is that he has heaped all the criminalities across the country over the period on IPOB.

“It appears right now that investigations are already concluded on who killed Dr Chike Akunyili, the husband of the late Dora Akunyili and Ahmed Gulak, and those who destroyed the palace of the Oba of Lagos. His remarks also showed that he already knows the killers.

“As the Attorney General of the Federation, whatever remark Malami makes should be highly founded on facts. It’s not supposed to be involved in speculations.

“These look like classical cases of those who are down, fearing further fall. Who will get Igboho, Kanu and their fellow wayfarers off the hook?,” the Ohanaeze noted.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has stated that it will soon inaugurate its online television; to enable Nigerian workers to tell their own stories.

The NLC President, Mr Ayuba Wabba, said this at the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the Labour Writers’ Association of Nigeria (LAWAN); held in Lagos on Friday, October 22.

The theme of the event was “Growing Insecurity and Unemployment: The Way Forward”.

“We have decided we are going to launch the first online TV very soon; we have already bought the gadgets.

“Also, I am sure, some of you will be the reporters, presenters; and above all, you will be everything in what we are going to do.

“This is just the beginning because we also have to assert our authority: we must be able to have space to say our own story; and let the workers also say their own story.

“Above all, let Nigerians say their own story outside what is being said by the conventional media,’’ he said.
