IPOB: Ripples over Nnamdi Kanu’s court victory

Following Thursday’s Appeal Court judgement which discharged the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, of all counts of terrorism charges preferred against him by the Federal Government, prominent individuals and groups of Igbo extraction, have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to unconditionally release the separatist leader.

They argued that the government had lost the legality to keep holding the IPOB leader in custody, and urged Buhari to honour his promise to a delegation of Igbo elders whom he promised to abide by the rule of law.
