Listen to article

Rt. Hon. Dr. Paschal Arinzechukwu Agbodike, the Deputy Speaker of the Anambra State House of As­sembly has joined numerous other Nigerians to demand the immediate release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu from continued detention.

In order to put a stop to the instability that has already engulfed the Southeast part of the country, Agbodike, who made the plea while seconding the motion for adjournment during plenary, stressed that the Federal Government should release the IPOB leader from the already prolonged captivity.

According to Agbodike, certain towns in the area have turned into ghost towns as a result of residents who fled their homes and took sanctuary in foreign countries out of dread for an uprising by daredevil gunmen.

He equally recalled that the Governor of Anambra state, Pro­fessor Charles Chukwuma Solu­do had made the same request, calling on the government of President Mohammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu to him and even volunteered to serve as surety for his release.

These he said were the cries of the Igbo nation in Nigeria and that Ndigbo were not known for violence and bloodshed instead they are known for industry, ingenuity, resourcefulness and peace-loving, adding that the re­lease of Nnamdi Kanu from de­tention will douse the tension in the Southeast region of Nigeria.

Agbodike said, ‘I passionately call on Ndi-Anambra especially our National Assembly members from Anambra State and the Southeast in general to live up to their responsibilities.’

Most of the places in Igboland today especially my local govern­ment Ihiala are being turned into ghost communities. You won’t see anybody in most communities. We are facing the problem of insecurity and what people are saying is release Nnamdi Kanu.

The Federal Government should please release Nnamdi Kanu. More than 85% of Ndigbo are hopeful that should the Fed­eral Government heed the call to release Nnamdi Kanu, the insecurity in Southeast will end.

The Eastern Updates recalls that recently, our dear Governor Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo volunteered himself as surety for the release of Nnamdi Kanu to him but the appeal seems to have fallen on deaf ears. Is it when things have entirely gone wrong that they would hear our cry?
