Release Nnamdi Kanu to me – Mbazulike Amechi tells FG
Chief Mbazulike Amechi served as the First Minister of Aviation during the First Republic in Nigeria, asked the Federal Government to please release Nnamdi Kanu to him as his 94th birthday gift.
Nnamdi Kanu who is also a British citizen, is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), founded in 2014, he was abducted by Nigerian officials in Kenya on June.
Chief Amechi whose birthday is on Thursday, 15 June, pleaded with the President general Muhammadu Buhari, to release the IPOB leader. According to him Nnamdi Kanu, release is the only key to end the insecurity in the southeastern part of Nigeria.
He said, “The security challenge in the southeast is the result of government refusal to do what I have asked them to do to help us to stop the killings in the southeast and Igbo land in general.
Maybe the insecurity in Igbo land suits them and their political purposes, otherwise, they would have listened to my advice and those of other southeast and south-south and even southwest leaders.
“There is only one key to the solution to killings in Igbo land now, and that is the release of Nnamdi Kanu. If that young man is released, you will see all these criminals who spring up claiming to be agitating for the release of Nnamdi Kanu while their real intention is to rob innocent and unsuspecting people, will go into hiding because they will have nothing as a reason to come out.”
Meanwhile, the family of Nnamdi Kanu is planning to sue the United Kingdom.
