The detained IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu

A member of House of Representatives,  Abia State, Obi Aguocha, has pleaded with  President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to ensure the unconditional release  leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

In a statement on Saturday in Abuja, Aguocha said the release of Nnamdi Kanu will be a demonstration of good faith in supporting the peaceful development of the South East and the wellbeing of Ndi Igbo.

Aguocha said Nnamdi Kanu, Omoyele Sowore, Sunday Igboho and Godwin Emefiele are citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria accused by the government of various alleged offences.

He said Sowore and Igboho are free men by reason of the determination of the judiciary in protecting the rights of the citizens while Emefiele, by the determination of the judiciary, has been granted bail in the sum of N50M.

He said further that while it is their constitutional right to freedom, Nnamdi Kanu has not been accorded the same right wondering whether he was not a Nigerian citizen.

He asked: “is Nnamdi Kanu not a citizen? Does Nnamdi Kanu not have a concomitant constitutional right to be granted bail? Shouldn’t Nnamdi Kanu at this point be released unconditionally?

“Is there one set rule for other Nigerians from different zones and another for Igbo’s within the South East zone?”
