Former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, has implored Governors of the South East to demand the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Metuh said this in a statement titled, “Use Enugu Meeting to Demand Nnamdi Kanu’s Release, Metuh Urges S/E Governors,” which he signed and made available via email, on Monday.
He urged the governors to use their proposed Enugu meeting to ask for Kanu`s release.
Metuh said, “As governors and leaders of the South-East zone converge in Enugu to find solutions to the security challenges in the zone, one sure step towards achieving answers is for our leaders to use the opportunity to demand for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention.
“It is a considered submission that the release of Nnamdi Kanu will not only douse tension in the region but also put an end to allegations and counter-allegations regarding those behind the escalated insecurity in the zone and give our security agencies a clearer cue to track down the perpetrators.”
