President Muhammadu Buhari has been asked to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
Mbazulike Amaechi, a First Republic Aviation Minister begged Buhari, saying the release of Kanu will bring peace to the South East.
Amaechi said Kanu’s release would end the spate of insecurity in the Southeast.
He noted that most criminals claiming to be agitating for Kanu would go into hiding if the IPOB leader is released.
“There is only one key to the solution to killings in Igbo land now, and that is the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
“If that young man is released, you will see all these criminals who spring up claiming to be agitating for the release of Nnamdi Kanu while their real intention is to rob innocent and unsuspecting people, will go into hiding because they will have nothing as a reason to come out.
“IPOB has disowned them and has even taken measures to apprehend them but as you know, criminals will have their ways of operating and claiming one fake thing or the other, but they are simple criminals operating one way or the other,” Amaechi spoke to journalists yesterday as part of events to mark his 94th birthday.
