Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has absolved the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) of the killings of five soldiers in Aba, Abia State on Thursday.

Kanu has been standing trial since 2021 when he was extradited to Nigeria for what the federal government said borders on treason.

The government during the administration of Muhammadu Buhari proscribed the group, saying it was carrying out terrorist activities against Nigeria.

Despite his treason trial, some elements in IPOB have insisted there must be a sit-at-home until Kanu is freed.

To coincide with what IPOB said was honour day to pay respect to “our heroes and heroines” who died during the civil war between 1967 and 1979, IPOB through its spokesman, Emma Powerful declared a total sit-at-home which led to the killings of the five soldiers.

Power had said in a statement preceding the sit-at-home on May 30 that, “Every Biafran in Biafra territory is expected to sit at home on this day and reflect on the danger of the forced unity called Nigeria that have taken millions of lives of Biafrans.”

Also, Simon Ekpa, who has declared himself the substantive leader of IPOB has continued to push for a sit-at-home until Kanu is released rallying the group from Finland where he resides to wreak havoc in the zone.

Atiku believes a political solution is a win-win for both parties.

He said, “The violence that led to the killing of soldiers and civilians in Abia State on Thursday stands condemned.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those who may have lost a loved one. May their souls rest in peace.

“But even more profound is the impact of yesterday’s sit-at-home in the Southeast region of our country on students writing WAEC examinations.

“The veil of the so-called Unknown Gun Men hiding under cover to unleash death and mayhem must be lifted to ensure that criminal elements are separated from legitimate agitators.

“To this end, without prejudice to the ongoing legal processes, I think the time has come to explore a political resolution to the Nnamdi Kanu and other associated issues.

“I believe that this will defuse the compressor cooker situation in the region. It will be a win-win for all parties,” Atiku stated in a personal statement he shared on social media.
