Abaribe Leads South-East Leaders to Seek Nnamdi Kanu’s Release

Nigerian Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe and 14 other South-East senators met with Attorney-General of the Federation, Lateef Fagbemi, to request the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Kanu has agreed to adhere to the Nigerian government’s terms for his release, as stated by Abaribe. However, Kanu’s lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, clarified that Kanu will only agree to “negotiated terms” for his release, not any condition.

South-East leaders, including senators and governors, are pushing for a political solution to Kanu’s detention to restore peace and stability in the region. Kanu’s continued detention has led to economic and social disruptions in the South-East due to IPOB’s agitation. Additionally, Kanu’s health is deteriorating in custody, raising concerns about his wellbeing.

The senators have requested an out-of-court settlement for Kanu’s case, highlighting previous instances where the government discontinued similar charges. The IPOB leadership warned against actions frustrating Kanu’s release and emphasized monitoring such acts. Kanu condemned the violence in the South-East and reiterated IPOB’s commitment to non-violence.
