Nnamdi Kanu who is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has praised the governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo for demanding his release from the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
Aloy Ejimakor, special counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, made this known in a tweet on his official handle on Monday shortly after visiting Kanu at the DSS headquarters, in Abuja.
The Eastern Updates recalls that Governor Soludo had on Saturday, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to release Kanu, stressing he was ready to act as a surety for the secessionist.
Reacting, Kanu hailed Soludo for his political courage to make such demand.
He wrote: ‘I just concluded a visitation with #MNK. He directed me to publicly convey his appreciation to Gov. Chukwuma Soludo for the political courage he displayed by demanding for his unconditional release.
‘On a sad note, he told me that his nutrition and medicals remain erratic.’
In another report, IPOB has turned down the request of Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, to stand as a surety for its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is still being detained by the Department of State Security Service (DSS).
IPOBm, in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, on Monday commended the voluntary move by Soludo to sign a surety for the unconditional release of Kanu, but noted that the request was belated.
Powerful pointed out Kanu does not need any surety because he has already been discharged by the court and tasked Soludo to gear all his efforts towards persuading and compelling the Federal Government to obey the judgement of the court that freed the IPOB leader.
