Nollywood actor and politician, Yul Edochie has added his voice to the calls for the release of the arrested Biafra agitator, Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu, who is the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been in detention following his re-arrest and return to Nigeria by the federal government.
The IPOB leader who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), is facing charges bordering on terrorism and treasonable felony brought against him by the government.
Taking to his Twiter handle on Wednesday, Edochie called on President Muhammadu Buhari to release Kanu and engage in dialogue.
He said force should not be adopted in resolving the issue at hand, urging the President to listen to the voice of the people.
According to him, a complex and multi-ethnic country like Nigeria will also experience agitation for break-up from different quarters and for various reasons.
“Release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and call for dialogue.
“In a multi-tribal country like Nigeria, there’ll always be agitation from different quarters.
“To keep the country united you should listen to your people, know why they’re agitating and resolve it peacefully. Not by the use of force,” Edochie tweeted.
Meanwhile, the Kenyan Government has said it does not have the departure record of Nnamdi Kanu after his arrival to the country on May 12, 2021.
Energyfmonline News reports that the Special Counsel to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Aloy Ejimakor, and the Kanu’s younger brother, Kanunta Kanu, made this known in a statement on Wednesday.
The statement said the Kenyan authorities had filed a document in court to show that the IPOB leader was allegedly moved from the county by the Nigerian government.
It added that the evidence tendered by the Kenyan government had made Kanu’s alleged kidnapping from the country a more grievous offense, claiming that serious consequences await all those involved in the action.
