Chairman, House of Representative Committee on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, Hon. Amobi Godwin Ogah has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Hon Ogah made the appeal when he featured in a popular television programme, “THE HALLOWED CHAMBERS” in Abuja
He noted that the release of Nnamdi Kanu will go a long way in ensuring peace in the South-East of the Country and also help in addressing the current sit at home order as it is currently seen in the region.
It would be recalled that IPOB, in August 2021, introduced a sit-at-home order every Monday across the South-east to pressure the Nigerian government to release its detained leader, Mr Kanu, who is standing trial for alleged terrorism at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Hon. Ogah Speaking on the controversial sit-at-home in the south east, said many companies has left the region thereby causing hardship, unemployment to the people.
According to him, “those behind the sit-at-home are enemies of Ndi-Igbo and Nigeria, because I don’t see any reason for that. Asking people to sit at home does not mean love because average Igbo Man/ Woman is a trader. There are many ways that we can express ourselves not by asking people to stay indoors.
“Am pleading with Mr. President that the best he can do for the South-East is releasing Nnamdi Kanu. Major reason of sitting at home is the continuous detention of the IPOB Leader.
