Dr. Collins Osuagwu, business man based in Germany has faulted Igbo leaders for their lack of concern about the well-being of embattled pro-Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The oil tycoon based in Germany lamented that there is every need for the leaders from the South East to watch out for their own.
Mr. Collins said, “persons like Sheikh Ahmad Gumi had repeatedly canvassed amnesty for bandits who he described as aggrieved against the society and the Yorubas have continued to rally round support for their own Sunday Igboho, so it is high time our illustrious sons and daughters speak for Kanu.”
According to him, “Almost everything Kanu said earlier is happening today. government’s accusation against him can’t be compared with Boko Haram, bandits, Fulani herdsmen havoc. Those of our brothers attacking and fighting him before his extradition should also speak up now that the people of the North are calling on Federal Government to give amnesty to killers herdsmen, who have raped, killed and rendered families homeless.
“It is disheartening that we are busy fighting our own as most Igbo leaders are ready to sell off everything to get another political appointment.”
Osuagwu said the leadership vacuum, discontent and disconnect created by “selfish leaders in Igboland resulted in disillusionment among the common people in the region otherwise the youthful energy that went into pushing for the region’s exit from the rest of Nigeria would have been put into good regional/national use.”
Osuagwu was a former governorship aspirant for the Social Democratic Party of Nigeria (SDP) for the Imo state gubernatorial election back in 2019.
He is also the Founder of Col Blue Ocean Line Limited Collinso International Limited and Zeus Marina Oil and Gas Limited.
