“I don’t see any reason for his continuous detention” – Peter Obi calls for Nnamdi Kanu’s release

Mr Peter Gregory Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has asked the Nigerian government to immediately release the proscribed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

The former governor of Anambra State, said this while speaking to reporters in Onitsha on Saturday, 29th of June, 2024.

The LP presidential candidate in the 2023 general election stated there was no reason for the continuous detention of the IPOB leader given that a Nigerian court earlier acquitted him, although that acquittal was overturned by the Supreme Court.

“I don’t see any reason for his continuous detention, especially as the courts have granted him bail. The government must obey the court.

“The rule of law is an intricate asset that we must cherish and live with. I use this opportunity to plead with the federal government to ensure that all those who are in similar conditions are released and discussed,’’ he said.
