CBCN Urges Tinubu To Release Nnamdi Kanu

The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, (CBCN) has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to release the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, saying it is in the best interest of the South-East.

President of the CBCN, Most Reverend Lucius Ugorji, made the appeal on Wednesday during the episcopal ordination of the Auxiliary Bishop of Orlu Diocese in Imo State.

TheFact Daily gathered that the Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday has denied Kanu’s bail application, and ordered an accelerated hearing of the case.

Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since his arrest in June 2021. He is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony.

However, Ugorji said, Kanu’s release would pave way for economic prosperity and security in the South East, adding that the Monday sit-at-home has paralysed the economy of the zone.

He said, the IPOB leader’s continued detention has been the major cause of insecurity in the South-East.

The CBCN’s president said, “we thank Governor Hope Uzodimma, of Imo state, for stepping up security to guarantee the safety of citizens of Imo State. I thank my brothers who took the risk from far and wide to attend today’s occasion despite the insecurity challenges across the country particularly in Southeast.

“Insecurity has become an issue in the Southeast. Unfortunately, the sit at home order has continue to paralysing economic and social lives in the southeast.

“There has been repeated outcry in the Southeast, business operators have loss billions of naira because of sit at home order. Many poor families are afraid to come out on Mondays.

“I appeal to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to explore civil remedy in the release of Nnamdi Kanu so as to restore economic and social lives to southeast,” he said.
