“The group showed a mature departure from the mindset of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra when Ohanaeze said they ‘do not support the use of any form of violence’ while channeling concerns and presenting demands.
“By urging the youths to be law-abiding and sheath their sword in addition to asking them to attempt to acquire a voter’s card to allow them to contribute to nationwide growth, the place of Ohanaeze turns into obviously constitutional and commendable,” it read in part.
Malami also stated that the current administration “respects the rule of regulation and doesn’t advocate for the breach of regulation. Hence, with or with out the so-called monitoring group, justice can be adequately served to Nnamdi Kanu in compliance with the enshrined provisions of the regulation.”
He also expressed hope that the group would be open-minded and guided by the rule of law to convey the court’s judgment to their people in their local dialects.

“I don’t know about that, Ohanaeze. Maybe it is another Ohanaeze wherever, but the Ohanaeze worldwide, the one led by me, has not sent any legal team yet to him (Malami). We constituted our team just on Saturday led by the Ohanaeze national legal adviser,” he mentioned.
