Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari for the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since his arrest in July 2021.
In a letter dated April 20, 2023, the Anambra governor said, “As you gradually wind down your eight years of duty tour, I have elected to write you on the above subject matter with a deep sense of duty, responsibility, and patriotism.
“I am a neo-Zikist, Pan-Nigerian, Pan-Africanist, and who is a stickler for the rule of law and protection of fundamental human rights of all Nigerians and persons.
“It is my hope and prayer that granting my appeal will be one of your historic acts of statesmanship in the last days of your stewardship as President and which will greatly advance the peace, unity, and progress of Nigeria.”
