Wike, Uzodinma, Mbah... - IPOB Releases List Of Top Politicians, Others Allegedly Working Against Release Of Nnamdi Kanu

The member of the House of Representatives representing Ikwuano, Umuahia North, and Umuahia South Federal Constituency of Abia state, Obi Aguocha, has begged for the unconditional release of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

In a state released on Saturday, Aguoacha appealed to President Bola Tinubu to assist in securing the freedom of the Biafra agitator, emphasizing that Kanu’s release would signify a commitment to promoting peace and progress in the South East region and the welfare of the Igbo people.

He highlighted that Kanu, Omoyele Sowore, Sunday Igboho, and Godwin Emefiele are Nigerian citizens facing various allegations by the government.

He expressed that Sowore and Igboho have been granted freedom due to the judiciary’s commitment to safeguarding citizens’ rights. In a similar vein, Emefiele has been granted bail in the amount of N50 million through the judiciary’s determination.

Aguocha questioned why Kanu, being a Nigerian citizen, has not been afforded the same constitutional right to freedom.

He asked, “Is Nnamdi Kanu not a citizen? Does Nnamdi Kanu not have a concomitant constitutional right to be granted bail? Shouldn’t Nnamdi Kanu at this point be released unconditionally?

“Is there one set rule for other Nigerians from different zones and another for Igbo’s within the South East zone?”
