The Senator Representing Anambra Central Senatorial Zone, Uche Ekwunife has called on the Federal Government to release the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Ekwunife advised the government to obey the judgement of the Appeal Court, noting that refusing to release Kanu will pass the wrong message in the South East region.
"I urge the federal government of Nigeria to obey the recent Appeal Court Judgment on the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
"It's been six days since the Court of Appeal discharged Mr Kanu.
"His further incarceration is a breach of his human rights and disregard for the rule of law.
"I call on the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami to quicken the process of releasing Kanu in accordance with the Judgment of the court.
"Kanu's continued detention after the court judgment sends a wrong message to the people of the South East region and indeed all lovers of justice.
"The federal government must use this opportunity to reassure the people of the region that Kanu's trial had no regional or ethnic colouration."
