Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, spokesman for the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to free Nnamdi Kanu from detention in order to save his life.
Ugochinyere made the announcement during a news conference in Akokwa, Ideato North Local Government Area, Imo State, on Wednesday.
According to the opposition spokesman, Kanu’s lawyer advised him that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader required immediate medical attention.
Ikenga claimed that Kanu should be released in accordance with a previous court decision that had discharged him.
He maintained that letting Kanu off the hook will ensure justice and fair play, and help in restoring peace in the South East.
Ikenga argued that the Niger Delta militants were negotiated with, to restore peace in the area and therefore wondered why the federal government has refused to give attention to the issues causing agitation in South East.

He also condemned the allegation of terrorism levelled against the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, describing it as baseless, unwarranted and a fallout of the hatred against the southern part of the country.

The human rights activist added that they will defend their votes with everything legitimate to ensure that fraudulent politicians are retired.
He lambasted Imo State House of Assembly for voting against the autonomy of the legislature, local government and judiciary, dismissing the them as sycophants.
