The embattled leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has reacted to a move by Governor of Anambra State, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, to stand as surety for his release from the Department of State Services (DSS).
Soludo had earlier charged the Federal Government to release the Biafra agitator, stating that he would stand as a surety for him if needed.
IPOB’s publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, had though reacted to the governor’s offer, saying that it was belated and not needed at the time.
According to him, the time for a surety has passed as all charges against Kanu have been struck out by the Court of Appeal, stressing that the federal government was violating the court order.
In a statement on Monday, one of the legal counsel to Kanu, Aloy Ejimakor, who visited him in the custody of the DSS, said the IPOB leader has asked him to convey his appreciation to Governor Soludo.
Ejimakor also noted that Kanu’s nutrition and medicals remain erratic.
“UPDATE: I just concluded a visitation with #MNK. He directed me to publicly convey his appreciation to Governor Chukwuma Soludo for the political courage he displayed by demanding his unconditional release. On a sad note, he told me that his nutrition & medicals remain erratic,” Ejimakor tweeted.
