Ohaneze Threatens To Shut Down Kano On Friday

Following the release of suspected killers of an Igbo woman, Mrs. Bridget Agbahime by a magistrate court in Kano, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council worldwide has threatened to shut down the city of Kano if justice would not be allowed to take its full course in the matter.

The youth wing of the Igbo apex socio-cultural group has already fixed Friday, November 11, for an all-round protest in Kano over the judgement.

Ohanaeze insisted that a magistrate court which had no jurisdiction over the trial of murder cases could not order the release of the suspects without the support of the Kano State government, describing the act as
capable of encouraging hoodlums to commit more atrocities against Ndigbo living in the state.

The youth group urged Ndigbo living in Kano to come out en mass on the 11th of this month to protest the judgement which saw Agbahiwe’s suspected killers released from detention, adding that its National President, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, would lead the protest.

In a statement signed by its national secretary and public relations officer, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike and Hon. Obinna Adibe, respectively, the youth council said it had resolved to employ all lawful means to ensure that the
killers were made to answer for their crimes, and expressed optimism that the appellate court would serve justice on the matter.

It further called on the chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC Governors Forum, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, to urge his Kano State counterpart to ensure that Agbahiwe’s killers did not escape justice, as well as the
protection of lives and property of non-indigenes living in Kano.

“We appeal to the chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, to urge his Kano State counterpart, Alhaji Umar Ganduje, to ensure the protection of lives and properties of Ndigbo. The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Lamido Sanusi and other Arewa leaders should intervene. We warn that if such thing happens again, we will hold Arewa leaders responsible,” the
statement read in part.
