Igbo youths vow to make President Tinubu their hero if he releases Kanu


A youth-based Igbo interest group, Coalition of Southeast Youth Leaders, COSEYL, has said that it would name President Bola Tinubu as its hero if he released leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.

Naijahitz recalls that Nnamdi Kanu has been in detention for over two years since his arrest in Kenya in 2021, and his extraordinary rendition to Nigeria, despite court orders for his release.

The group in a press release signed by its President-General, Goodluck Ibem read:

“President Tinubu has before now been an advocate of the rule law and respect for court orders which informed his decision to be part of NADECO and the fight against military junta and dictatorship.

“The entire SOUTHEAST geopolitical zone is waiting earnestly to receive their son Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as the Supreme Court decides on his matter come 15 DECEMBER 2023.

“The apex sociopolitical youth group in the SOUTHEAST geopolitical zone call on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to be a Hero by releasing the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from DSS custody.

“We will celebrate President Tinubu for upholding the rule of law and respecting the Court judgement releasing Nnamdi Kanu from DSS custody.

“The unconditionally release of Nnamdi Kanu will prove that President Tinubu says and stand by what he professes and fought for in the past during the military era.”
