RELEASE NNAMDI KANU FROM DETENTION, BIANCA OJUKWU PLEADS WITH PRESIDENT BUHARI
Former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain, Mrs BIANCA OJUKWU has asked President MUHAMMADU BUHARI to release the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), MAZI NNAMDI KANU.
The wife of LATE ODUMEGWU OJUKWU, Mrs BIANCA OJUKWU made the plea in Owerri on Friday while speaking at the 10th memorial anniversary of the late Igbo leader, CHUKWUEMEKA ODEMEGWU OJUKWU.
BIANCA urged President BUHARI to consider the earlier plea made by some Igbo leaders, during their recent visit to the State House, Abuja, where they pleaded with President BUHARI to release KANU.
Mrs BIANCA believes that KANU’s release would demonstrate BUHARI’s magnanimity.
“KANU’s release will further buttress President BUHARI’s commitment to healing the wounds inflicted by the sense of marginalisation felt by the Igbo nation”.
She maintained that the clamour for secession is a direct consequence of perceived inequality in distribution of resources and political appointments in the country.
She urged governors of the South East geo-political zone to remember OJUKWU like the Leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASOB), Chief RALPH UWAZURUIKE
RALPH UWAZURUIKE is the convener of the event.
