Kanu who is the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) was released after he met his bail condition but his whereabouts remains unknown since Operation Python Dance.
The senator spoke at the Made-In-Aba Products Fashion Show held as part of the 2017 Convention of Abia State National Association of North America (ASNA) at Hilton Hotel JFK, New York on Saturday, October 8. He noted that buyers and exporters of Aba products stopped coming to the state due to security risk posed by the Biafra agitation and military operation.
He said: “I am a Nigerian Senator and not that of Biafra. We had advised Kanu, reminding him that his rights end where those of others begin. We are now in trouble, because we do not know where he is and how to contact him. Those that support Kanu’s agitation should think twice.”
He called on the people to be pragmatic and that that “we should trust that our leaders, both elected and not elected can get the best for us.
We think we need Biafra, but this Biafra should be that of the mind that represents our ingenuity and our innate quality for hard work and enterprise, especially as oil proceeds keep dwindling. “Igbo are largest and highest investors in the country, contributing to the development of wherever they reside and operate.
In Lagos alone, we have built and developed about ten different markets from which over N3b are generated on daily basis.” Meanwhile, traditional rulers in Afaraukwu community in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State spoke about the disappearance on Kanu and his parents.
The trio was said to have been missing since the military operation carried out by the army and community members are expressing worries over the development. The Punch reports that the traditional rulers expressed worry specifically over the disappearance of Eze Israel Kanu who is one of their own.
