Nollywood actor Ejike Asiegbu has condemned the prolonged detention of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu. Asiegbu who spoke after a visit to the Biafra agitator and leader in Kuje Prison Abuja said Kanu is a political prisoner.
The actor said: “No matter how some people feel about it we must sit down and discuss issues that concerns us.” “We have the Anifere, the Arewa, the Odua’a people congress group, who is arresting them like IPOB members are being arrested,” Asiegbu said. He further added that there is, “absolutely nothing wrong with agitation or a call for a referendum.
Let us not sweep everything under the carpet and pretend that things are going well – things are not going well. We met Nnamdi Kanu and the others in very high spirit.Therefore we call on governor, elders and our leaders to speak out in clear terms.
Let us come to the table and sort out our differences. Since his detention, many leaders including the former governor of Central Bank Chukwuma Soludo have visited the IPOB leader and his co-accused in the prison. Kanu was arrested in Lagos on October 14, by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) upon his arrival from London. He was charged with treasonable felony and concealing of goods in a container,” he concluded.
