Nnamdi Kanu detention: I will tell Tinubu to do the Needful – Joe Igbokwe
Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state has said he will tell President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to release Nnamdi Kanu so that the “madness in the South East will cease to exist”.
Igbokwe, a native of Anambra state, is a big supporter of Tinubu and the ruling government in Lagos.  Recall that Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who has been detained by Nigerian authorities since 2021, said in court on Tuesday, March 19, that insecurity in the southeast geopolitical zone will end in no time if he is released.
Reacting, Igbokwe, who was a victim of the insecurity in the southeast in 2021 when his house was burnt down, wrote on his known Facebook page:
God, I thank you. I will tell PBAT (referring to President Tinubu) to do the needful and madness in the South East will cease to exist.”
Kanu, a British-Nigerian citizen, has been involved in a years-long campaign to have a new nation of Biafra. His agitation has been met with resistance by successive Nigerian authorities.
Kanu’s separatist group has been linked to some deadly attacks and killings in the south-south and south-east regions, an allegation it has repeatedly denied. Nnamdi Kanu’s bail request was denied In a significant development, the federal high court, Abuja, turned down the bail application of Kanu on Tuesday, March 19.
