I Can Prostrate Before Buhari For Nnamdi Kanu’s Release – Igbo Elder

The Federal Government of Nigeria after a court ruling, is yet to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Recall that the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja last week discharged the charges levelled against Kanu by the Federal Government. President Muhammadu Buhari-led government in its reaction to the ruling, however, stated that Kanu has been discharged and not acquitted. A former Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife while reacting to the development said he would be willing to prostrate or kneel before President Buhari for the release of the IPOB leader. According to Ezeife, the leader of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, George Obiozor is planning to send a delegation of Igbo elders to visit Buhari on Kanu’s issue. Ezeife discloses this on Monday during an interview on Arise TV, while reacting to the Appeal Court ruling. The Igbo elder said, “If President Buhari wants me to kneel, I will kneel. If he wants me to prostrate, I’ll prostrate just for Nnamdi Kanu to be released. Going to Supreme Court is a waste of time. Everyone in Nigeria is looking for a new Nigeria.” The former governor claimed that Kanu’s released will address protests, agitation and sitting-at-home in the South-East region. He added said the Igbo elders will welcome negotiation from the Presidency to ensure Kanu’s release and peace in the South-East.
