Chief Simon Okeke, elder statesman and former chairman of Police Service Commission (PSC), has told the Federal Government not to extradite Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who is based in the United Kingdom.
Reacting to the move by the Federal Government to extradite Nnamdi Kanu, Okeke said that the FG should rather face the security challenges in the country.
He declared that extradition should not be its priority when Boko Haram insurgency and other security challenges had been holding the country to ransom.
The elder statesman said this at his country home, Amichi, in Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State, noting also that the criticisms trailing the just concluded Ohaneze Ndigbo election, which produced Chief George Obiozor as the president general of the Igbo apex body, was out of self-centeredness and should be dismissed.
Chief Okeke said he was part and parcel of the exercise and saw nothing wrong that could justify the criticisms trailing the emergence of Chief Obiozor.
He explained that the insinuation that Obiozor was the candidate of the governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodima, was neither here nor there.
Okeke said Obiozor the former Nigerian Ambassador to the United States of America (Obiozor) was elected on merit and not selected.
