The request for the immediate release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, made by Samuel Ortom, the governor of Benue State, has the support of Kanu’s attorney, Aloy Ejimakor.
In a Wednesday interview with Arise TV, Governor Ortom called for the release of the separatist who has been in the Department of State Services’ custody since 2021.
Ortom asserted that there was no need to maintain the freedom fighter because the Federal Government was unable to address the security threat facing the nation.
He said, “I am calling for the release of Nnamdi Kanu. Why are you incarcerating a freedom fighter, and leave the Fulani men? Look at the Kaduna-Abuja train attack, up till today, our people are still being kept by these bandits.
“Where is the security and the president? Tell me what is happening, it is a shame.”
Reacting, Kanu’s counsel, Ejimakor said in a tweet that all Nigerians particularly the Southeastern leaders should emulate the governor.
He wrote, “This is what everybody, particularly Southeast Governors/Leaders should be saying. #MNK”.
