Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR, has appealed to the Nigerian government to “unconditionally and immediately” release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
The governor of Anambra state made the call at a political gathering in Awka, the state capital on Saturday, January 14.
Governor Soludo went further to assert that if the detained IPOB leader cannot be released unconditionally, he should be released to him saying he is ready to stand surety for him.
“I am making a passionate appeal to the Federal Government to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally. If he cannot be released unconditionally, I want him released to me and I will stand surety for him.
We need Nnamdi Kanu in the roundtable conversation to discuss the insecurity in the South East. We must end insecurity in the South East and we need Nnamdi Kanu to be around.”
Soludo promised to cater for Nnamdi Kanu and also offered to bring him to the authorities any time he is required
“I will house him here in Awka. We need him released to end insecurity in the South-east,” he said.
Kanu was arrested by the Federal government in June 2021 and has been in detention since then.
