Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu, has been advised by top ranking senators from the National House of Assembly to thread with cautions. The meeting was held 4 days after his release from detention with Southeast senators late Tuesday night in Abuja.
The meeting, which held in the Apo Legislative Quarters residence of Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, was said to have been used by the IPOB leader to thank the senators for their efforts to secure his release. The Senators urged Kanu to abide with the bail conditions attached to his release by an Abuja Federal High Court on April 28. Although the senators did not ask Kanu to shelve his agitation for the actualisation of the sovereign state of Biafra, but stressed the need for unity and development in the Southeast.
The senators assured Kanu that they were working to actualise the three IPOB members still in detention.
Also yesterday, the caucus of senators elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) raised the alarm, alleging plots to harass, intimidate and place the deputy Senate President under arrest. They alleged that arrangements have been concluded to clamp Ekweremadu into detention within the next two weeks by some “Powerful persons in the Presidency” using the EFCC and other security agencies to execute the plot.
At the briefing were: Ekweremadu, Senate Minority Leader Godswill Akpabio; senators Theodore Orji and Gilbert Nnaji, among others.
