Osita Okechukwu, the Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), has called the detained self-acclaimed leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, a ‘boy’ for calling Nigeria a ‘zoo’.
The VON boss made this known in a chat with the New Telegraph.
”This is a boy, who is living in United Kingdom and has little or nothing do to with us here.
”If he is being tried, has the Supreme Court said he should be released? To me, the Igbos are highly accepted in this country. Forget about the civil war because most countries also passed through the same road, even the United States.
”So, we must forget about the past and move ahead. If you look at it democratically, the Igbos have never at a time said they want to leave Nigeria.
”Between 1995 and 1996, the Igbos set up a secretariat for the Constitutional Conference organised by the General Sani Abacha regime,” he said.
