Nnamdi Kanu should be prosecuted, Asari Dokubo tells Tinubu.

The Niger Delta Activist, Asari Dokubo has faulted calls for the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, arguing that his release would fuel impunity akin to the #EndSARS crisis and he said Kanu should be prosecuted.

“Releasing Nnamdi Kanu is rewarding criminality and rewarding gruesome murder of innocent people. He should face the law for the actions and instigations he has carried out.”

“What did he do? He poured petrol on the flames of #EndSARS. Now, he has been caught. What of the people who have died? This is a criminal. He should face the law.

Asari Dokubo said this in a press briefing after a meeting with the President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu yesterday on a visit to the first citizen of the state.

The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, was re-arrested and brought back to Nigeria to face his trial.

Mr Kanu and his co-defendant are facing treasonable felony charges at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Recall that Nnamdi Kanu fled the country in September 2017 after an invasion of his home by the military in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia, Abia State.

The Nigerian government obtained a court order on September 20, 2017, to designate IPOB a terrorist group and to proscribe it.

Kanu who was re-arrested on Sunday, June 27, 2021 has been in custody since then.

“Nwannekaenyi Nnamdi Ngozichukwu Okwu-Kanu, born September 25, 1967 at Afara-Ukwu, Abia State, Nigeria, is the leader of IPOB.

“It is recalled that Kanu was first arrested under the Buhari administration on October 14, 2015 on 11-count charge bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, managing an unlawful society, publication of defamatory matter, illegal possession of firearms and improper importation of goods, among others.”
