Soludo tells Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu

A former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof. Charles Soludo, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the immediate release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.


Soludo said this in Abuja on Thursday at the presentation a book entitled, ‘The Politics of Biafra and the Future of Nigeria,’ written by Chudi Offodile.

The former CBN governor said Kanu was not popular until security agents arrested him last year.

He recalled that Chief Obafemi Awolowo was imprisoned for treason in the 1960s, but this caused him to be loved even more among the Yoruba.

Soludo said Kanu’s prolonged detention would make him a hero or a martyr, which would not stop the current Biafran agitation.

The ex-CBN governor warned that if Kanu was not released, his detention could be used as a campaign tool in 2019, just as the pardoning of Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu was used by Shehu Shagari to gain support in the 1980s.

Other prominent Nigerians at the event included a former Minister of Transport, Osita Chidoka; former Vice-President Alex Ekwueme; a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha; and the Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Kukah.

5 Comments on Soludo tells Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu

  1. Fake Igbo man, Atulu.


  2. Make them release the man na


  3. What difference will it make if the detention of terrorist Kanu is used as campaign tool in 2019? Did Biafrauds vote for APC in 2015? If both SE and SS voted the same way while the SW and the North voted the same way in 2019, they will still fail as usual and the biafrauds will just continue to wallow in the self-induced political wilderness.


  4. Did Igbo people vote for Buhari last presidential election? No But Muhammed Buhari still won the election, let them hold it down there,nothing will happen.
