We want Eze Sir I. O. Kanu, JP. back to Afaraukwu – Afaraukwu Development Union

We want Eze Sir I. O. Kanu, JP. back to Afaraukwu
1. Our attention has been drawn to publications and comments suggesting that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu is playing politics with the plight of our Traditional ruler, Eze I. O. Kanu, who has been missing since the attack on his palace in September 2017.
2. We wish to place on record that the meeting between us and the Governor was at our instance and he graciously accepted to meet us without pre-information on the reason for the meeting.
3. Our delegation, which included our two traditional rulers, HRH Eze Ibeawuchi and HRH Eze Sir P. K. Ukaegbu, alongside women and youth leaders of the Afaraukwu Ibeku community presented the issue of our missing Eze, among other things, and requested for the assistance of the Governor to ensure his return to the community and his people.
4. It was on the basis of our request that Governor Ikpeazu promised to engage with other south east Governors to ensure that Eze Kanu is returned to his people before the end of the year. He also invited two of our Traditional Rulers (Ezes) to join him to meet the other Governors as well as engage the federal government to ensure the return of Eze Sir I. O. Kanu.
5. It is on record that Governor Ikpeazu resisted sundry pressure to dethrone HRM Eze Sir I. O. Kanu as he publicly maintained that the Traditional Ruler never committed any offense contrary to the laws of Nigeria.
6. We wish to state that our people have never accused Governor Ikpeazu of masterminding the attack on our community as we were privy to the efforts he made to stave off the attack as well as his exemplary post crises management efforts.
7. We have total Confidence in the leadership of Governor Ikpeazu, hence our collective decision to endorse and support him for second term in Office as Governor of Abia State.
8. We therefore wish to call on politicians and their hirelings to desist from meddling in our matter for cheap political gains. Our people know those who stood with us without political noise and those who plotted against us in the night and now want to make political profit out of our misfortune.
9. We want HRM Eze Sir I. O. Kanu back to our people and his throne.
Signed
