Senate Rejects Motion Seeking Nnamdi Kanu’s Release


The Nigeria’s Senate during plenary on Wednesday rejected motion seeking the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The motion was sponsored by Senator Osita lzunaso of the All Progressives Congress (APC) representing Imo West (Orlu) and by other senators from the southeast titled “Condemning the disruptive nature of sit-at-home Demonstrations in south-east Nigeria”.

Senator Izunaso pointed out that investors have been forced to leave the region and that thousands of innocent lives have been lost since IPOB’s sit-at-home order and the violent disruption of the IPOB in the region destroying properties worth over a trillion naira.

Aside the disruption of socio-economic activities in the region students are at the mercy of the IPOB members.

The distinguished senator however warned that if there are no drastic measures to check the overzealousness of the Self-acclaimed factional leader of the IPOB, Simon Ekpa the activities in the region might escalate beyond control.

The senate which observed a minute silence in honour of those who lost their lives as a result of the activities of the sit-at-home proponents, however, declined a request for Nnamdi Kanu to be released as the matter is still court.
