HRH, Eze Israel Kanu, the traditional ruler of Isiama Afaraukwu in Umuahia, has appealed to the Federal Government to withdraw all the charges against his son and leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu, who made the appeal in an interview, in Umuahia on Monday, said such measure would help to foster peace and douse tension in the country.
The monarch said “I call on the Federal Government to immediately withdraw all the charges preferred against Kanu in the interest of peace in the country.
“He did not commit murder. He did not carry arms; neither did he commit any heinous crime to warrant such a government clampdown.
“His only offence was that he expressed his opinion in a democracy where people are free to express themselves without the fear of arrest or molestation”, he said.
“He is more than 18 years of age and has become an adult. He is capable of having an independent opinion on any issues. So, I cannot ask him to stop pursuing what he believes in.
“The only thing that can assuage him is to allow him to have Biafra and no amount of inducement, even giving him an oil block, would stop him”, he said.
Kanu, who described the bail conditions by the Abuja High Court as stringent, thanked Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe, (Abia South Senatorial District), an Igbo Jewish Rabbi from Port Harcourt, Immanuu El-Shalom, and a renowned Chartered Accountant, Tochukwu Uchendu, for securing his release.
