Soludo: Release Nnamdi Kanu to me, I’ll be his surety

Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo, appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the imprisoned leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The governor also offered to serve as a surety for the IPOB leader, who is still being held by the Department of State Services (DSS).

This comes just days after Channels Television reported that Senate Chief Whip and former Abia State Governor Orji Kalu had offered to stand as Kanu’s surety if he was granted bail again.

Soludo, who spoke at a rally in Akwa, Anambra State to launch the national campaign of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), underscored the need for critical conversations on the degenerating security situation in the South-East involving all major stakeholders.

He said: “I now want to appeal and plead and request and demand of the Federal Government and our able president led by President Buhari that a critical person [is] required around that table for that conversation to be complete for us to have an all-round approach to dealing with the issue of insecurity and discussing the future of the South-East.

“That person – and we need him urgently around the table, please release him to us – and that is Nnamdi Kanu. I’m calling on the Federal Government to please release Nnamdi Kanu.”
