Listen to article

South East-based secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reassured the release of its leader Nnamdi Kanu will end insecurity in the South East calling on the Federal Government to follow the counsel of reason.

The Eastern Updates reports that this statement is coming barely few days after Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide President General, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, visited Kanu in solitary confinement.

IPOB clarified on Saturday in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, that Kanu is not involved in criminal activities and did not order the killing of soldiers.

Instead, he has consistently advocated for peaceful remembrance of fallen heroes and an end to violence.

“The same way we don’t want any Biafran killed is how we don’t want any other person or persons to lose their lives. All lives are precious before God and the freedom for Biafra will mean nothing if we don’t value the lives of fellow human beings.

” IPOB demands Kanu’s release to bring peace to the region,” it said.

Meanwhile, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar has made a strong case for a political solution to the continued detention of Kanu.

The call came following the killing of soldiers in Aba, Abia State during Thursday’s sit-at-home declared by IPOB across the Southeast.

Condemning the killing, the former Vice-President, stated that exploring a political solution for Kanu, who is facing treason charges will help calm tension in the region.

The violence that led to the killing of soldiers and civilians in Abia State on Thursday stands condemned.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those who may have lost a loved one. May their souls rest in peace. But even more profound is the impact of yesterday’s sit-at-home in the Southeast region of our country on students writing WAEC examinations.

“The veil of the so-called Unknown Gun Men hiding undercover to unleash death and mayhem must be lifted to ensure that criminal elements are separated from legitimate agitators.

“To this end, without prejudice to the ongoing legal processes, I think the time has come to explore a political resolution to the Nnamdi Kanu and other associated issues. I believe that this will diffuse the compressor cooker situation in the region. It will be a win-win for all parties,” Atiku wrote on X on Thursday.
