Release Nnamdi Kanu, Igbo Leaders Tell Buhari In Ebonyi

South-East leaders have urged President Muhammadu Buhari to release the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Chairman of South-East Traditional Rulers Council, Eze Charles Mkpuma made the plea on behalf of Igbo leaders in an address during a meeting with Buhari at the Executive Council Chambers, New Government House Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State on Friday.

“We plead for a political solution that as a father; a kind father, a forgiving father, to grant Nnamdi Kanu freedom,” he said. “We say that he should be granted pardon.

“And we call on all agitators to cease all forms of hostilities and rather demand a nation where the plights of the poor, the weak, the oppressed will be addressed.”

Interestingly, President Buhari, in his remarks, did not say if he would consider the request of the Igbo leaders or not.
