Reps Committee Demands Nnamdi Kanu’s Release

The House of Representatives Ad hoc committee interfacing with relevant security agencies to reduce kidnapping, assassinations and banditry in Abia communities, has called for the release of detained Indeginous People of Biafria (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Rep. Obinna Aguocha, chairman of the ad-hoc committee, made this call in Abuja at the resumed sitting of the House.

He noted that Kanu’s release would serve as a panacea for peace in the southeast region.

The communities are Isiukwuato and Umunnochi local government areas of the state.

Aguocha called for the unconditional release of Kanu from detention to ensure lasting peace and security in the entire region.

The lawmaker said there was a need to look into what caused insecurity, which was at their core and work to ensure lasting solutions to it.

Aguocha said for absolute peace, reduction of crime and criminality, and ending the unproductive sit-at-home order, there was a need for investment in meaningful infrastructural development.

He stressed that this would improve economic growth and opportunities in the southeast.

Aguocha said it was imperative for the government to recognise the rule of law, justice and equitable inclusion of the southeast zone.

“The challenges we face are not mere statistics or headlines; they are real-life manifestations that affect the lives of our people, and disrupt the functioning of our institutions and communities,” he said.
