Bianca Ojukwu, wife of late Biafra leader Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu has reiterated call for the released of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed separatist group, Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), being held by the Muhammadu Buhari regime.
Mrs Ojukwu noted that doing so would help resort to peace especially in the South-East geo-political zone adding that “no nation that holds its people hostage can ever have peace.”
The former Nigeria Ambassador to Spain renewed the call on Saturday in Owerri, at the 11th edition of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Memorial Lectures. The memorial event was organised by the Movement for the Sovereign State of Biafra and Independence Biafra Movement (MASSOB-BIM).
Kanu has been under detention since he was extraordinarily renditioned from Kenya in June 2021 by the federal government. Though the Court of Appeal in October quashed charges preferred against Mr Kanu, the Buhari regime refused to release him and successfully got the court to nullify his freedom.
