‘Don’t Free Nnamdi Kanu’ – Asari Dokubo Urges Tinubu to Keep IPOB Leader Behind Bars

Must read

ABUJA, Nigeria – Niger Delta warlord and Ijaw nation activist Asari Dokubo has urged President Bola Tinubu not to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

Dokubo made this statement during a press conference following a meeting with President Tinubu at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Friday, June 16, 2023.

Dokubo suggested that releasing Kanu would essentially be rewarding criminality and condoning the brutal murder of innocent people.

He insisted that Kanu should face legal repercussions for his actions.

It is worth noting that Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, since his re-arrest in 2021, facing trial for terrorism charges.

The Federal High Court in Abuja granted him bail in 2017, but he violated the bail conditions and fled the country, leading to his re-arrest.

Former President Muhammadu Buhari resisted pressures to release Kanu, but with the advent of a new government, calls for the IPOB leader’s release have resurfaced.

Expressing his views on the detention of Kanu, Dokubo said, “Releasing Nnamdi Kanu is rewarding criminality and rewarding gruesome murder of innocent people.

He should face the law for the actions and instigations he has carried out.”

He further commented on the current state of security in the country, claiming that there are full-scale wars ongoing in different parts of Nigeria.

He specifically highlighted the South East, where IPOB and the Eastern Security Network, ESN, are reportedly waging a full-scale war against the government.

This has resulted in the desertion of many local communities, and the closure of schools and hospitals, Dokubo said.
