Release Nnamdi Kanu and be a hero – South East youths tell Tinubu


The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to release the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in order to gain maximum support in the Southeastern region.

In a statement on Saturday, COSEYL’s President General, Goodluck Ibem, stated that the President would be highly regarded if Kanu, who is currently held by the Department of State Services, DSS, is set free.

Ibem expressed confidence that the region’s security crisis would diminish if Kanu regains his freedom.

The group claimed that Tinubu had “before now been an advocate of the rule of law and respect for court orders which informed his decision to be part of NADECO and the fight against military junta and dictatorship.

“The unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu will prove that President Tinubu says and stands by what he professes and fought for in the past during the military era.

“We will celebrate President Tinubu for upholding the rule of law and respecting the Court judgement releasing Nnamdi Kanu from DSS custody”.

The call comes just a few days before the Supreme Court’s ruling on Kanu’s case, which is set for Friday, December 15th.
