Doyin Okupe, a former presidential aide has told the Buhari administration to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, without further delay.
Okupe, who served as a presidential aide during the tenures of former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan, said Nnamdi Kanu is more important than the forthcoming November 6th election governorship election in Anambra State.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain admonished Buhari to release Kanu if that would restore peace in the South-East geopolitical zone.
“ I hereby call on the Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu, if that will bring peace in the South-East zone, especially Anambra State,” he wrote on Facebook.
“Nnamdi Kanu should be released for the sake of peace and order in that region.
Nnamdi Kanu is more important than the Anambra State governorship election.
“I call on the Federal Government at this point of our national history to invite the leadership of IPOB to a peace meeting…”
IPOB had vowed to ensure that the forthcoming election does not hold in Anambra State declaring a total shutdown of the South East region from Friday, November 5th, 2021.
However, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has maintained that all is set for the election to take place according to schedule
