Amaechi

The elder statesman recently led a delegation of prominent Igbo leaders to Aso Rock where he made a case for the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

Nigerian first Minister of Aviation and prominent member of the Zikist Movement, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi is dead.

He died on Tuesday morning in his home town of Ukpor in Anambra State, aged 93.

The elder statesman recently led a delegation of prominent Igbo leaders to Aso Rock where he made a case for the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

In May 2022, Amaechi, had pleaded with armed groups to withdraw the sit-at-home order declared on May 5 and 6 in the region over the planned two-day visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Ebonyi State.

Amaechi had pleaded with the unknown gunmen to withdraw the threat and avoid actions that would embarrass Ndigbo before President Buhari.

He had also noted that the planned visit of the President would offer an opportunity for Igbo elders to find solutions to the insecurity in the region and secure the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.

He had said, "I read on social media that a militant group has issued a statement against the coming of the President to the Southeast. Please I want to appeal to whosoever, or group, behind the statement to please withdraw that threat.

"Despite my old age plus the aching pains all over my body, I am almost in a wheelchair, yet I am highly committed to restoring peace in Igboland. I will meet the President along with some Igbo leaders and elders about the security of our region, which is interwoven in the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu.”
