Igbo leaders on Wednesday sustained their pressure on the Federal Government for the release of the embattled leader of the Independent Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, with a visit to the Attorney-General of the Federation, Lateef Fagbemi, SAN, in Abuja.

Senators from the South-East numbering 15, led by a former Abia State Deputy Governor, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, met with the AGF to plead with President Bola Tinubu for Kanu’s release.

They also submitted a letter to the AGF seeking a political solution to the criminal charges against Kanu.

The visit happened 24 hours after the South-East Governors’ Forum at its meeting resolved to approach the President to rethink the continual detention of the IPOB leader.

The clamour for a political solution to Kanu’s case has heightened recently with Igbo political and traditional leaders, including the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, pressing the Federal Government to drop the terrorism charges against the IPOB leader.

Kanu, who pleaded not guilty to the charges, has been in the custody of the Department of State Services since June 2021after he was repatriated from Kenya.
