Southeast Leaders Will Meet Tinubu Over Nnamdi Kanu’s Release – Senator Ubah

The lawmaker representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Ifeanyi Ubah, says South-East leaders are set to meet with President Bola Tinubu to discuss the possibility of releasing Nnamdi Kanu.

Recall that the Proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader has been in detention for about two years now, and Ubah believes his release will help reduce insecurity in the South-East geopolitical zone.

The lawmaker noted that Kanu’s release is part of the discussion to put on the table once they can get into talks with the President.

He maintained that there is a connection between releasing the IPOB leader and the state of security in the South-East.

Ubah also said that Kanu does not support sit-at-home, adding that he has said it publicly in one of his appearances in court.

His words:

“There is a resolution that we are going to meet with the president and we will tick his leniency and see if it is going to be possible to plead with him to have Nnamdi Kanu released.

“We have taken that position, and for also some of us in the Senate, we have our caucus, we have also taken that position.”

Ubah also said that the South-East leaders are as well considering engaging with the government of Finland to probe sit-at-home crusader, Simon Ekpa.

“We also need to look at the young man that is in Finland that is causing all this problem and see how we can diplomatically engage the government of Finland and show them that he is not really giving a good service.

“Even though we don’t know if he has taken the nationality of Finland,” he added.
