Nnamdi Kanu: Igbo monarch sends message to Buhari over IPOB leader

Eze Oti Ndubuisi, (Igwe Ezeudo), has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately facilitate the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS) since June when he was seized in Kenya.

In a statement on Monday obtained by POLITICS NIGERIA, the diaspora-based king also urged other tribes in Nigeria to support the aspirations of Ndigbo in respect of the 2023 presidential election.

“The two things Igbo are asking Nigeria are Presidency in 2023 and unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kalu,” Eze Oti said.

“It is disheartening to note that 61 years after Nigeria’s independence, one of the tribes that formed the tripod of the country is yet to produce a sitting President. This to me is one of the reasons behind endless agitations in the South East geopolitical zone.

“Looking at it till date, Igbo are the only tribe yet to produce a democratically elected President of Nigeria.”For the sake of peace and unity, I want to plead with Nigerians from other geopolitical zones to support the Presidency of Igbo extraction.”
