April 02, (THEWILL) – The governor of Anambra State, Prof Charles Soludo, has called for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Soludo made the call during a stakeholders’ security and peace building meeting held in Awka.

He regretted the state of insecurity in Anambra, South East and Nigeria in general, and called for dialogues instead of resorting to violence.

The Governor said it was time to engage all stakeholders in ensuring peace and progress in the state, adding that ‘discrimination breeds hatred and violence.’

The joint security meeting had emphasised the need for justice in the state to reduce acrimony.

Soludo, while aligning with the stakeholders’ stance, expressed the hope that governors of the South East as well as the larger Nigeria would see reasons for immediate justice for Nnamdi Kanu, adding that ‘justice delayed is justice denied.’

The former CBN governor, called for an end to Monday’s sit-at-home in some states of South East. In his view, ‘Monday’s sit at home is not a way to protest.’

THEWILL earlier reported that IPOB had cancelled the Sit-at-home directive in the entire South-East states.

Sudo warned that enforcers of the order would be categorised as criminals, and would be treated as such.
