Rising from the 9th Synod of the Diocese of Umuahia, Province of Aba, held at St. Luke’s Church, Amakama, Olokoro, Umuahia Council Area of Abia State, the Church called on the government to clearly state what happened to Eze Kanu and his wife.
The Synod urged President Buhari to reconsider his decision to contest again, and advised him to resign honourably.
The Conference called on him “as the Chief Security Officer of the nation, to “as a matter of urgency and for the unity of the country, correct the lopsided appointments in Federal positions.
“The decision of the President to run for a second tenure should be reconsidered, and the Synod called on him to resign honourably”, the Communiqué stated.

In a communiqué at the end of the Synod, the Church “strongly frowned at the State of insecurity in the nation, particularly the inability of the government to clearly state what happened to HRH Eze Sir I. O. Kanu, his wife, Ugoeze Lady Sally Kanu, and son, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, all of Isiama Afaraukwu, concerning their present whereabouts, after Soldiers illegally invaded their home, in the name of Operation Python Dance II.”
The Church through the communiqué, also lamented the ugly activities of the herdsmen, which it said, “has led to pillage and destruction of villages and communities, as well as the dastardly massacre of innocent residents by the marauding Fulani Herdsmen.”
