From Fred Itua, Abuja
The senator representing Anambra south senatorial district, Ifeanyi Ubah, has urged the Federal Government to critically examine the issues surrounding the arrest and detention of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Ubah gave the advice during a stakeholders’ meeting when he visited Alaba International market in Lagos as part of sensitisation and engagements with Anambra people.
A statement by the Director, Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah Campaign Organisation, Kamen Chuks Ogbonna, said the team had a robust discussion and exchange of ideas on various issues surrounding the South East development.
Said Ubah: “It is our firm belief that this burning issue should not in any way be politicised, but rather it be given the due attention that it requires. Injustice to one amounts to injustice to all, and as the senator has said on several fora including a recent BBC interview, there is need for the Federal Government to address the issues surrounding the arrest of Mr. Kanu, especially in the face of reports that he was carrying the passport of another country at the point of arrest during his visit to another foreign country.
“We strongly believe that if the Federal Government finds a political solution to the Nnamdi Kanu issue, the present insecurity in Anambra State will come to an abrupt end as the politically sponsored bandits killing people under this guise will have no further excuse at their disposal.”
