Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, governor of Anambra State, has pledged to formally request Nnamdi Kanu’s release as leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Soludo made this comment during an appearance on Politics Today on Channels TV.

The governor has gone on record saying he is willing to serve as a guarantor for the incarcerated IPOB leader.

Kanu is being tried on charges of terrorism and treasonable felony.

In an interview, Abubakar Malami, AGF and Minister of Justice, stated that he had not received any such application from Soludo.

Nonetheless, the former CBN governor commented on the new development, saying, “They (Federal Government) will receive that letter in few days. And I am very serious about this.

“It’s not something personal. It’s about the life, security and well-being of the entire South East. We need to be serious and get into this conversation. We want this election to go peacefully in the South East.

“We want everybody to participate. We want peace and security to return. We want a long-time transformation for this place to secure and very prosperous component of Nigeria.

“But you need all the stakeholders around the table. I thank the president for his assistance with what they call the kinetic approach: the force, the shooting and all the armed forces. They have been helping us; but we need to bring this to a sustainable conclusion.”
