Catholic bishops ask Tinubu to release Nnamdi Kanu

The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, CBCN, has asked President Bola Tinubu to release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in the best interest of the South-East.……CONTINUE READING>>>

The appeal is coming on the heels of the denial of Kanu’s bail application by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

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

Ugorji said Kanu’s release will pave the way for economic prosperity and security in the South East.

According to him, the IPOB leader’s continued detention has been the major cause of insecurity in the South East, adding that the Monday sit-at-home has paralysed the economy of the zone by making many businesses lose billions of Naira on a weekly basis.

It was recalled that Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja denied bail to Kanu on Tuesday. The court, however, 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.
