Following the re-appearance of leader of the proscribed IPoB, Nnamdi Kanu, the South- East Renewal Group (SERG) has asked Igbo leaders to apologise to the federal government as well as the Nigerian army.

The group said the apology becomes very important following the wrongful accusations by the igbo leaders that the army had adopted the IPoB leader.

In a statement made available to journalists, SERG further urged Igbo youths to stay away from Kanu, saying there is nothing to be gained from supporting a separatist ideology that has only regrets.

It stated that, the Igbo leaders and youths should rather continue to support the federal government, irrespective of the ethnic group of the person that occupies the office.

“Igbo youths, leaders and organizations must also apologize to the Nigerian Army that was wrongly accused of killing Kanu when in reality the coward ran away from the country on his volition,” the statement read.

The statementsigned by SERG national president, Charles Mbani
said while it is true that the people of the south east continue to clamour for restructuring that will promote equity, they will continue to respect constituted authority and institutions and will never descend low to the point of disparaging other human beings.

He stated that Nnamdi Kanu, and the faction of IPOB that he leads, do not speak for the Igbo as a people, stressing that his utterances are at variance with the belief of the people of the South-East Nigeria.

The statement reads further, “we strongly believe that his desperation for money has made him team up with those that are out to frustrate the Igbo agenda and interest.

“we say this because it is curious that Kanu had hidden for so long as a common criminal only for him to turn up at a time when the political fortunes of the South East are improving with the nomination of one of our own, Mr. Peter Obi as a Vice Presidential candidate in next year’s election. It is no surprise that one of the things Kanu did first was to resume singing like a broken record that there will be no election in the South-East, which is his own way of diminishing Igbo votes and denying the region of the Vice President’s position.”

Mbami warned that should Kanu decide to step his foot in Nigeria, the group members will physically deliver him to the nearest police station for onward transportation to appear in court.
