Asari Dokubo begs Tinubu not to release IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu, says he is a criminal and gruesome murderer

Renowned Niger Delta leader, Asari Dokubo, has asked President Bola Ahmed Tinubu not to release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), asserting that it would amount to rewarding criminal behavior.

Kanu, who is standing trial for terrorism, has been in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since his re-arrest in 2021.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had granted him bail in 2017 but he flouted the bail conditions and subsequently fled the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari had resisted the pressure to release Kanu, but with the entry of a new government, fresh calls are being made for the IPOB leader’s release.

However, Speaking with reporters after meeting President Tinubu on Friday, June 16, 2023. Dokubo said Kanu should be made to face the law.

“His release would fuel impunity; during EndSars, Nnamdi Kanu was walking free. What did he do? He poured petrol on the flames of EndSars. Now, he has been caught. What of the people who have died? This is a criminal. He should face the law.

“Releasing Nnamdi Kanu is rewarding criminality and rewarding gruesome murder of innocent people. He should face the law for the actions and instigations he has carried out,” he said.

Meanwhile, Dokubo earlier accused the Military and cabals as the ones behind 99 percent of oil theft in the Niger Delta.

He, however, offered the assistance of his followers to combat and put a stop to it and also expressed his willingness to utilise his group of loyal supporters, known as “his boys,” to take the necessary actions to halt these nefarious activities.
