Founding National Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Chief Chekwas Okorie has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to follow the path of honor by ordering the release of detained Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu
Okorie argued that effecting the release of Nnamdi Kanu will definitely usher in a new era of calm and security of life and property, especially in the Southeast and South-South geopolitical zones of Nigeria.
He also noted that one immediate impact that would follow Kanu’s release is the automatic stoppage of the economically debilitating stay-at-home, every Monday of the week in the Southeast geopolitical zone.
Okorie was of the view that criminals who have been operating under the cover of IPOB pretending to be freedom fighters, will now be isolated for who they truly are.
He also noted on Friday, that it is fortuitous that the Appeal Court judgment is coming at the verge of the electioneering period in the country, adding that the security concerns of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, would be reduced to the barest minimum in the South East and South-South geopolitical zones of Nigeria.
His words of appeal to the presidency, “I join millions of Nigerian citizens and concerned Diaspora Communities in the joy of the well-considered judgment of the Court of Appeal that discharged and acquitted the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on Thursday, 13th October 2022.
