Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo has called for the unconditional release of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Sahara Reporters reported that Soludo made the demand in Awka, the state capital during the campaign kick-off of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) on Saturday, January 14, 2023.
The governor said he was ready to stand as a surety for the leader of the Biafran group if the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Nigerian government could not release him unconditionally.
Addressing the mammoth crowd of supporters and party faithful that turned up for the event, Soludo argued that Kanu’s freedom is key to finding solutions to insecurity in the South-East region of the country.
He said: “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.”
