Release Nnamdi Kanu Now – Peter Obi Demands

Immediate past Governor of Anambra
State, Mr. Peter Obi, has called for the release
of the leader of the Indigenous People of
Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and other
detained Biafra activists.
Obi, while fielding questions from newsmen in
Enugu, yesterday, emphasised that the use of
force was not the solution to the Biafra
agitation as such agitations are best resolved
through dialogue.

He said: “I wish to appeal to the Federal
Government to change its hardline posture on
this issue and yield to the persistent clamour
for the release of Nnamdi Kanu and other
Biafran activists to douse the tension in the
country, especially in the South-East and
South-South geo-political zones.
“The Federal Government should engage them
in dialogue. Every agitation in the world is
resolved through dialogue and not by means
of force.”
The former governor recalled that he was
among the first to advocate a political solution
to the renewed Biafra agitation and expressed
disappointment that the advice was yet to be
heeded.
“This has been my consistent position, and I
remember making the same point when I
spoke at an event organised in Enugu in
February 2016 by the Igbo Youth Movement,”
he said.
He noted that while the Federal Government
may have reservations about the Biafra
agitation, it should realise and acknowledge
that the agitators, like other citizens, have
their fundamental rights of freedom of
expression and assembly guaranteed by the
Nigerian Constitution.
