Leaders in the South East have pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
In a meeting on Friday, The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the South East, Reverend Father Abraham Nwali, made the plea on behalf of the South East leaders at the Ebonyi State Government house, Abakaliki.
“We plead for a political solution that as a father; a kind father, a forgiving father, to grant Nnamdi Kanu freedom,”he said.
He pleaded for a Pardon on Kanu and also called on Agitators to end all forms of violence and hostilities. It can be recalled that Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Security(DSS) since his recapture in June 2021.
He had fled the country in 2017 after he was granted bail for medical reasons. The Nigerian government has since re-arraigned him in court and on April 8th at the Federal high court in Abuja, 8 out of the 15 charges levelled against him were struck out.
He will however face trial on the remaining charges.
