…Calls on southeast leaders to unite in the fight against insecurity
Southeast Resilience and Support Group (SERSuG), a Coalition of concerned stakeholders for social and economic development of the Southeast geopolitical zone has commended Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State on his demand for the release from detention, Mazi Nnamdi, Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Prince Chris Azor, Coordinator of the group, in his interaction with newsmen, said Governor Soludo has exhibited uncommon courage and leadership capacity by demanding unconditional release of the IPOB leader and consequently volunteering to stand surety for him.
Governor Soludo made the demand on Saturday during the well attended campaign flag-off of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Awka, the State capital.
Comrade Azor said the Federal Government has no more legal and moral justification to continue keeping Kanu in detention after the Court of Appeal discharged and acquitted him of all charges of terrorism and now that such eminent Nigerian has accept to stand surety for him.
“Releasing Nnamdi Kanu is the first condition for restoring lasting peace and security in the southeast Region especially, as we steadily approach the general election. Since Governor Soludo has volunteerd to have him released with the responsibility to produce him on demand, I see no further justification for his continued incarceration”, he said.
Going further, the human rights advocate called on leaders of the southeast region to come together in brotherhood and solidarity as one people, to fight the monster of insecurity that has arrested the development of the zone.
He further advised that Governor Soludo be given the opportunity to drive the peace process looking at his intellect, uncommon courage and enthusiasm to ensure peace and prosperity of Ndi Igbo and Nigeria at large.
