‘Why Buhari Must Immediately Order Nnamdi Kanu’s Release’
President Muhammadu Buhari has been directed to order the Department of State Services (DSS) to immediately release the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, from detention.
Naija News reports that the call was made by the spokesperson of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere.
Speaking to newsmen on Wednesday, the House of Representatives candidate warned the federation government against allowing Nnamdi Kanu die in custody, saying there would be chaos.
Ugochinyere said, “In the interest of justice, equity, reconciliation, President Muhammadu Buhari should release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from DSS custody. It will not be in the interest of justice if Kanu dies in detention. Release him first and come back to the negotiation table.
“The issues are injustice, herdsmen attacks, loop-sided appointments, and they have not been addressed. But government has addressed Niger Delta issues even Boko Haram repentant have been granted amnesty and training.
“President Buhari can order the Attorney General of the Federation to file notice of discontinuance. We are begging him to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu especially because of his health to avoid chaos.”
