Updates: Nnamdi Kanu is set to be freed by Tinubu.

Nnamdi Kanu was detained again by the Federal Government in Kenya in 2021 and transported to the country to face charges related to his terrorist activities.

Southeast Asian senators have implored President Bola Tinubu to order the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the indigenous Biafra people, who is now in detention.

The lawmakers, led by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, asserted that the social and economic life of the South-East will remain stagnant unless Kanu is freed.

The senators handed their letter to President Tinubu regarding Kanu’s release during a private meeting with Lateef Fagbemi, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, in preparation for it being forwarded to the head of state.

Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, Abaribe addressed reporters immediately following the meeting and bemoaned the fact that the region’s social life and economy had already suffered enough as a result of the agitator for the Biafra nation’s ongoing imprisonment.

Abaribe expressed extreme concern that the arrested IPOB leader’s peaceful appeal has been co-opted by thugs and seasoned criminals, resulting in the senseless murder of innocent people, including security personnel.

The former deputy governor of Abia state informed the media that he had already met with Kanu on Monday at the Department of State Services (DSS) headquarters in Abuja, and that Kanu had consented to follow any release restrictions.

Senator Abaribe voiced hope that if Kanu is freed, the hostilities and tensions surrounding the area after he was placed under DSS custody in 2021 will eventually become a thing of the past.

Therefore, the senators begged the AGF to utilize his position to use his influence to have President Tinubu hear their message and to drop all charges the federal government had brought against the IPOB leader.

Abaribe added that practically all political officials, religious leaders, and stakeholders agree that Kanu must be released in order for the region to experience peace once more. This includes the senators.

The Federal Government re-arrested Kanu in Kenya in 2021 and sent him there to stand trial for acts of terrorism.

Despite his plea of not guilty to the allegations, he was not admitted to the Federal High Court in Abuja by Justice Binta Nyako.

Based on the claim that he breached the last bail, when Senator Abaribe served as his as a guarantee.

Since then, Kanu has been under the DSS’s custody per the Federal High Court of Abuja’s directive.
