Buhari Has Promised Not To Oppose Kanu’s Release – Rep Member

Obi Aguocha, the member representing the Ikwuano/Umuahia constituency in the National Assembly, has revealed that former President Muhammadu Buhari has promised not to oppose the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), through a political resolution. Aguocha shared this information following his visit to Buhari in Daura, Katsina State.

During the visit, Aguocha sought the former President’s intervention and support for a political resolution regarding Kanu’s continued detention and trial. He expressed apologies for any missteps and utterances made by his constituent, Nnamdi Kanu, and emphasized the importance of promoting understanding and unity.

“Former President Buhari welcomed my approach and assured me that he would not oppose a political solution for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s release.”

“This meeting is part of a broader initiative to secure a speedy political resolution and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s subsequent release, in the spirit of dialogue and non-contentious approaches to resolving national issues”, Aguocha said.

He expressed confidence that with the assurance given by the former President and the letter of appeal he led 50 House of Representatives members to write to President Bola Tinubu about Kanu’s conditions, the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu would soon be released through political resolution.
