The leadership of Ohanaeze Youths Council on Tuesday called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the federal government to release unconditionally the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria, El-Zakzaky and other detainees granted bail by various courts across the country to avert possible eruption of religious war.

The group made this known through in a press statement signed by its President General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and forwarded to DAILY POST in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State.

“With banditry in the North West, Boko Haram in the North East, armed herdsmen terrorising the Middle belt and Southern Nigeria, and OPC, Biafra Agitators and Niger Delta Militia all waiting for the herdsmen, ultimatums and Counter Ultimatums of Northern Ethnic Youths vs Southern Ethnic Youths, presidency needs to urgently address this issues and release El zakzaky unconditionally with others or President Muhammadu Buhari cannot Survive fighting all insurgents in every zone in the Country.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth council worldwide is in support for the 2019 National Youth Dialogue/Confab packaged by Nigeria ethnic Nationalities Youth leaders where the issues threatening the unity of the country will be addressed and solutions proffer. We urge the Federal Government to tow the part progress and Support every peaceful means to avert all these insecurity situations in the country”, the youths said.

Reps divide over call for el-Zakzazy’s release, vote behind closed doors

In the aftermath of Monday’s clash between the police and members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shiites, in Abuja, members of the House of Representatives were on Tuesday sharply divided over the release of the detained leader of the group, Ibrahim El- Zakzaky.

While some lawmakers urged the Federal government to release the Shiites’ leader in compliance with court orders, others kicked against his release.

The disagreement over El-Zakzaky’s release stalled proceeding in the House for several minutes, forcing the speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, to quickly call for an executive session in a bid to quickly arrest the situation.

Shortly after calling for a division and the lawmakers had started taking positions in the chamber, the Speaker asked that the process be done behind closed doors, asking the sergeants-at-arms to usher non-members out of the chamber and gallery.
