Chief Iwuanyanwu noted that the lingering insecurity in the region was getting out of hand, which ought not to be so, adding that Kanu cannot be in prison while such a crucial summit is being held.

“The council took a decision on the need to have a peace summit. It goes with the desire that Nnamdi Kanu should be released because we want to dialogue with his participation in order to have an enduring peace in Nigeria particularly in the South-East.

“The council therefore called on the Federal Government and all other persons concerned to release Nnamdi Kalu unconditionally.

“We must have a Peace summit where we will get all the stakeholders including the agitators and youths together to chart a new course that can enthrone enduring peace,” he said.

He further discarded the insinuation that the South-East would secede from Nigeria, noting that people still use threat of secession against the interest of the zone, noting that the Igbo have invested in virtually every localities in Nigeria in areas of business, services, and building properties.

“So the talk of secession is peddled without honesty, however Ndigbo is only interested in fairness and equity,” he said. #UmuIgboNiile
