The president general of the Igbo World Union (IWU), Chief Mishak Nnanta has condemned the release of Boko Haram suspects who were arrested by Nigerian security agencies in Abia enroute Port Harcourt.

Nnanta said that the release of the suspected extremists pose serious implication to the security of the nation as well as national unity.

The News Agency of Nigeria had reported that 133 indigenes of Jigawa State among the suspects were last Friday handed over to the state government amidst grand reception.

IWU said while it “ is not opposed to the freedom of any innocent suspect”, caution, however, should be exercised when dealing with terror suspects.” He said it still beats the imagination why about 486 self-acclaimed job seekers, led by confirmed Boko Haram kingpins on the wanted list of security agents, should be travelling on a convoy under the cover of darkness.”
