Umuahia youths give Ikpeazu 24 hours to dethrone Nnamdi Kanu’s father | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

A group, Umuahia Youth Movement, has given Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, 24 hours to dethrone His Royal Majesty, Israel Okwu Kanu, the paramount ruler of Isiama Afaraukwu in Umuahia, and father of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

The youths on Sunday said failure to do so will force them to take the law into their own hands.

In a letter by Ifeanyi Okwudili, President; Kasarachi Ubani, Vice President and Anayo Ofor, Secretary, the youths said for failing to rein in his son, which led to their businesses being paralyzed, the royal father was not fit to continue in office.

The memo also copied President Muhammadu Buhari, the Inspector General of Police, the Department of State Service, Senate President, Speaker of the House of Representatives and South East Governors Forum.

It reads: “With tears and sorrow, the Umuahia Youth Movement respectfully write to request the dethronement of Nnamdi Kanu’s father as a traditional ruler of our clan.

“It beats our imagination that a man who calls himself a Royal father and an Elder could not call his son to order but rather encourage him in his madness that have plunged Umuahia city to a great crisis today.

“Sir, recall that Umuahia have been the most peaceful capital city in Nigeria to live and do business but just because of one man, we are today facing the wrath of the Federal government of Nigeria.

“Our shops, markets, schools, churches and all banks have been shut down. For the past three days we have been indoors for fear of been attacked by the military just because of one man whose father is our traditional ruler.

“Based on the above, we hereby request the he be dethroned within 24 hours or we will take the laws into our hands and dethrone him and even strip him unclad and raze his house.

“We appeal to every well meaning Nigerian as well to prevail on Governor Ikpeazu to as a matter of urgency dethrone Nnamdi Kanu’s father.

“We also request the Operation Python Dance should remain in all streets of Umuahia as any attempt to withdraw will make the IPOB criminals rob our shops and houses.

“Sir, we assure you that we remain one Nigeria and will join hands with you to make our country Nigeria and state Abia the best among all the countries of the world.

“Please accept the assurances of our esteemed regards.”

​Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army declared that its ongoing operation in the ​Southeast will continue.

  1. I can't wait to this wright up before throwing my full weight behind the youths. The man is not fit to be a leader talk more of a royal father for that matter. For his failing to caution his derailing son, instead supporting him fulltime.

  2. God is watching you all

  3. The man should have been dethroned earlier before now.He is not only supporting his son but has been silent enjoying the money his son has amassed 4rm his gullible sponsors, while innocent children were on the streets being murdered on daily basis. The man should even be arrested to provide his son. Rubbish!

  4. This is a welcoming development we are strong behind you, if he is still in power he will continue supporting bad people like his idiot son

  5. Around of applause to the Umuahian youths

  6. Was these not the youth supported Nnmdi kanu before the army invasion, how come they now went against him so quickly, are sure this letter is not from one of the mischievous northerners, try to put salt and pepper in the whole matter? Let's watch and see how it turns around!

  7. I hate with pleasure Nigerian politics

  8. They call the Third World the lazy man’s purview; the sluggishly slothful and languorous prefecture. In this realm people are sleepy, dreamy, torpid, lethargic, and therefore indigent—totally penniless, needy, destitute, poverty-stricken, disfavored, and impoverished. In this, as they call it, there are hardly any discoveries, inventions, and innovations. Africa is the trailblazer. Some still call it “the dark continent” for the light that flickers under the tunnel is not that of hope, but an approaching train. And because countless keep waiting in the way of the train, millions die and many more remain decapitated by the day. “It’s amazing how you all sit there and watch yourselves die,” the man next to me said. “Get up and do something about it.”Brawny, fully bald-headed, with intense, steely eyes, he was as cold as they come.
