A senator representing Anambra South, Ifeanyi Ubah, says South-East leaders will plead with the Federal Government to release the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, from detention.

When asked on Channels Television’s Politics Today if the IPOB leader would be released soon, Ubah responded: “Definitely”.

“I am of the firm belief that if we can consult – with the consultation we have had, the government will start looking in that direction,” he said Thursday.

“Even though it is something that the government cannot say – based on the issues in court, the government cannot say that they can take a unilateral position. But I believe by the time we join the forces coming into the centre spread, we will make an appeal.”

He attributed Kanu’s continued detention as one of the reasons fueling insecurity in the South-East region.

But Ubah expressed optimism that efforts will be made to combat insecurity in the area.

“We spoke on many issues, not only insecurity. We discussed insecurity; it was one of the focused infrastructures, but most importantly, even looking at the stability of the southeast and my state – our detained brother, Nnamdi Kanu.

“A lot of things are on the table; let us see how, where we will get to,” he added.
