Nollywood actress, Rita Edochie has said “Nigeria will never know peace” if the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is not released.
News360 info recalls that Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since his arrest and extradition from Kenya to Nigeria in June 2021.
However, in October, a federal high court in Umuahia, Abia state, faulted his extradition, quashing all terrorism charges brought by the Federal Government.
In resistant, the FG dragged IPOB leader to the Supreme Court following an order of the Court of Appeal freeing the IPOB leader.
Taking to her Instagram on Monday, Edochie lamented the continued detention of the IPOB leader.
She also called on the people of the South-East to unite and demand for Kanu’s release, adding that they can never achieve its push for presidency without the support of Kanu.
“The continuous detention of mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu will keep dividing Nigeria. So long as Mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu is still being detained, Nigeria will never know peace. Ndi Igbo I laugh, ndi Igbo wake up. Onye Igbo can never smell presidency without Mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu,” she wrote.
“It is a spiritual thing. Fight for your own first and God will finish the battle. Ndi Igbo let nothing happen to our great brother Nnamdi Kanu because it’s going to be our worst experience. Chukwu okike abiama is waiting for Ndi Igbo to act. God is not sleeping.”
