Ejike Mbaka, controversial Catholic priest, has for the umpteenth time demanded the immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu, detained leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).
Mr Mbaka renewed the call on Sunday, according to a recent video clip that has been circulating on the social media, arguing that it was the only option that could restore peace in the troubled region of South-East where government facility are targeted and destroyed by unknown gunmen he allegedly has ties with.
“Please, I ask in the name of God and that by the power of God, our leaders should quickly release Nnamdi Kanu,” he reiterated.
Late August last year, the Adoration Ministry overseer made similar demand after bandits raided the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) in Kaduna.
Mr Kanu is being detained by the State Security Service (SSS) in Abuja on the orders of a federal high court. The agitator, demanding the restoration of the Biafra Republic, was charged for terrorism but the Court of Appeal quashed all the charges brought against the secessionist leader ordering his release.
The federal government, which abducted him from Kenya years back, has gone to the Supreme Court to appeal against the Court of Appeal decision.
