Traditional rulers and leaders of religious organizations in the South East zone have made a strong call for the release of the Leader of the Proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu after the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja last week Thursday discharged him of charges preferred against him by the federal government.

Prominent personalities in the zone under the aegis of The South East Council of Traditional Rulers and Representatives of Igbo Archbishops and Bishops On Peace and Conflict Resolution in a press release yesterday jointly signed by the traditional ruler of Onitsha, Obi Alfred Achebe who is also the chairman of Anambra State Council of traditional rulers called for the release of Kanu.

The group said that in the recent past, it had undertaken extensive and intense behind-the-scenes consultations with all stakeholders to broker a permanent, regionally coordinated restoration of the South-East to the status as the most peaceful and progressive subnational zone in Nigeria.

They said they have been consistent and persistent in the call for all stakeholders to not relent in the pursuit of peacebuilding and resolution of security challenges in the South East, and they all supported the call for the unconditional release of Kanu to quench the current tensions across the Southeast and create an atmosphere for collaboration towards a constructive resolution of the issues.
