Why Buhari should release Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally — Bianca Ojukwu

A former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain, Bianca Ojukwu, has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Mrs Ojukwu made the plea while speaking at the 10th memorial anniversary of late Igbo leader, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, organised in Owerri on Friday.

She urged the president to consider the plea made by some Igbo leaders during their recent visit to the State House, Abuja, asking for Mr Kanu’s release.

She said that Mr Kanu’s release would demonstrate Mr Buhari’s magnanimity, adding that the clamour for secession is a direct consequence of perceived inequality in distribution of resources and political appointments in the country.

She, however, urged governors of the South East geo-political zone to remember Mr Ojukwu as well as the convener of the event, Ralph Uwazuruike, leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra.

“Kanu’s release will further buttress President Buhari’s commitment to healing the wounds inflicted by the sense of marginalisation felt by the Igbo nation,” she said.

Speaking, Ahamefula Ojukwu, chairman of the occasion and son of the late Igbo leader, thanked Mr Uwazuruike for conducting the affairs of the entire Igbo nation in unity.
