“Anything to the contrary would mean adding fuel to the already ignited fire but we are not praying for that.

“If the FG actually wants peace in the -East, let them release Nnamdi Kanu. Anyone interested in peace in the zone should think of Kanu’s release, not sending military; brutal has never solved any problem, rather dialogue.”

The Youth , however, did not spare the -East leader over their on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case in the communique they issued after their meeting in Enugu last week.
