A House of Reps member representing Arochukwu/ Ohafia federal constituency, Hon. Uko Nkole, has revealed why National Assembly members of Igbo extraction are silent over the continued detention of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, who was arrested by the operatives of the Department of State Security, DSS, in October 2015.

Responding to criticisms that have come the way of South-east National Assembly members for saying or doing nothing about the Radio Biafra founder’s ordeal, Nkole said he and his colleagues decided to keep sealed lips over Kanu’s affairs “because the matter is already in court.”

The federal government has preferred treason charges against the IPOB leader.

The Reps member, who gave the explanations while fielding questions from newsmen on Friday after inaugurating his constituency office in Ohafia, said there was nothing they could do until the court had decided on the matter.

Speaking on the destruction of crops and farmlands in some parts of the South-east states by Fulani herdsmen and their cattle, he condemned the action and called on the security agencies to rise up to the challenge before it degenerates into ethnic clashes.He decried the reported declaration of some part of Ohafia farmland as “Republic of Fulani” by some Fulani herdsmen who also hoisted their flag in the area, and commended the security agents for dismantling the said flag.

Nkole maintained that while there is freedom of movement in the country, it would be wrong for herdsmen to hide under the guise of such freedom to destroy crops and farmlands of their host communities.
