An Igbo group, Concerned Igbo Citizens Council (CICC), has urged the Federal Government to release all individuals detained for self-determination agitations, in line with President Bola Tinubu’s commitment to a free society.

In a statement released over the weekend by the Interim National Coordinator, Comrade Ukachukwu Anaele Obioha, and the Interim National Secretary, Mazi James Uke Okorie, the group emphasized the need for the unconditional release of pro-Biafra activists and others advocating for self-determination.


While acknowledging the recent release of Sunday Igboho, a pro-Odua Republic agitator, and Omoyele Sowore, the group stressed the importance of extending the same gesture to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and all others detained for similar activities.

Obioha highlighted the disparity in treatment between Igbo and Yoruba activists, citing the continued detention of Kanu and numerous Igbo youths involved with IPOB activities. He asserted that such actions by the government create an “unsavoury ethnic and sectional colouration” to its actions.

The group further called on the Department of State Services, Police, and the National Human Rights Commission to promptly investigate and compile a comprehensive list of individuals affected by self-determination agitations, including those killed, maimed, or unlawfully incarcerated.

“We demand the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and all Igbo and Eastern Nigerian youths detained for supporting the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB),” Obioha stated.

The council pledged to mobilize Nigerians across ethnic lines to advocate for a free society and urged organizations like Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide and Igbo Governors’ Forum to support the release of Kanu and his supporters.
