Peter Obi Urges President Tinubu to Release Nnamdi Kanu, Others

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has called on President Bola Tinubu to release Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), along with other freedom fighters currently in detention.
Obi emphasized that Kanu’s continued detention is unjustified, stating, “I don’t see any reason for his continuous detention, especially as the courts have granted him bail. The government must obey the court.”
These demands were made during a press briefing on Saturday in Onitsha, Anambra State.
Obi further added, “The rule of law is an intricate asset that we must cherish and live with. I use this opportunity to plead with the Federal Government to ensure that all those who are in similar conditions are released and discussed. We are in a democracy, and we should not be doing things that are arbitrary and not within the law.”
Expressing concern over the escalating insecurity in Nigeria, Obi warned that the country risks becoming a failed state if urgent action is not taken. He urged leaders to collaborate and intensify efforts to address insecurity, particularly in the South-East region, and encouraged the governors of the South-East states to work together to tackle insecurity and promote economic development in the region.
