Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, has stated that if President Muhammadu Buhari does not accept his request for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra, he will turn his focus to the new Bola Tinubu administration.
Kanu has been detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) since his detention in July 2021, and Soludo has frequently pleaded with President Buhari to free him. His most recent request was made in a letter to the President dated April 20, 2023.
On Friday, Governor Soludo remarked on Channels Television’s Politics Today that he believes in the cause of Kanu’s release and that the President-elect received a copy of his most recent letter.
This is a cause that one believes in. Consistently I am an advocate of the rule of law and justice for all and therefore if you look at that letter, that letter is copied to the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and I want to also believe that a copy has been delivered to his office as it were.
The Attorney General is also copied in this letter and if President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration fails to take advantage of this opportunity to really rise above every other thing and be a statesman as it were, if the president fails to take advantage of that, we will be pursuing the same thing with the incoming administration.
