Nnamdi Kanu Continued Illegal Detention: Open Letter To Peter Mbah, Governor Of Enugu State 

June 6, 2023

Dear Governor,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to share my thoughts and concerns regarding your recent call for the residents of Enugu State to ignore the sit-at-home protest that Biafrans have willingly continued to observe as a way to communicate their displeasure with the government's long and illegal detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB). As a concerned citizen, I believe it is crucial to engage in open dialogue and promote understanding to address the challenges facing our society, instead of adopting similar forceful measures that have yielded no fruits since the Biafra agitation began.

Firstly, it is important to acknowledge that the sit-at-home protest in the region is a voluntary expression of the people's frustration and concern over the illegal detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. It is an act of civil disobedience aimed at drawing attention to the perceived injustice and disregard for the rule of law. By choosing to sit at home, the people of Biafra are making a symbolic statement to express their solidarity with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and their demands for his release.

While I understand your call for normalcy and economic activities to continue, it is crucial to recognize the underlying reasons behind the sit-at-home protest. The people of Biafra believe that the government has refused to obey court orders and international directives regarding Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's release. This perception has fueled their resolve to engage in peaceful protest as a means of amplifying their voices. This is why I think that instead of you(Mr Governor) directing your anger towards the people who have chosen to participate in the sit-at-home protest, I encourage you to focus on addressing the root cause of their dissatisfaction. The concerns raised by the people of Biafra are not without merit, and it is essential to engage in constructive dialogue with all stakeholders to find a peaceful and lasting solution.

As the just sweared in governor of Enugu State, you have been entrusted with the responsibility of representing the interests of the people. It is vital to foster an environment of open communication and understanding, where the concerns of the citizens are heard and addressed. I urge you to consider engaging with community leaders, civil society organizations, and relevant stakeholders to explore avenues for dialogue and peaceful resolution.

In conclusion, I humbly request that you reconsider your call for residents to ignore the sit-at-home protest. Instead, let us focus our efforts on the diplomatic engagement of the powers holding the IPOB leader captive, since it is the most obvious way to address the root causes of the sit at home protest. Your government should prioritise advocating for the rule of law. By working together, we can create an inclusive society that upholds justice, respects human rights, and embraces peaceful means of conflict resolution.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I hope it serves as a constructive contribution to your quest for a better Enugu, and efforts for a better future.

Yours sincerely,

Obulose Chidiebere
