[Video] He is Just Fighting for His People, Pls Release Him – Igboho Calls for Nnamdi Kanu’s Release

by Ohepo Ohepo

In a significant turn of events, prominent Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Igboho, has made a public appeal for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a group that has been proscribed by the Nigerian government. This call marks a notable instance of solidarity across regional and ethnic lines within Nigeria’s diverse socio-political landscape.

Nnamdi Kanu, who has been a central figure in the push for the independence of the southeastern region of Nigeria, was detained under charges that have sparked widespread debate and controversy. His arrest and continued detention have been met with international attention and criticism, highlighting concerns over human rights and freedom of expression in Nigeria.

Sunday Igboho, known for his advocacy for the Yoruba nation’s autonomy in the southwest, has stepped beyond regional advocacy to voice his support for Kanu. In his statement, Igboho emphasized the innocence of Kanu and the political nature of his detention. He urged the Nigerian government to “Release Nnamdi Kanu, stop the politics,” highlighting the shared struggle between their respective movements.

This call for Kanu’s release is not just a plea for the freedom of an individual but a significant gesture towards unity among groups advocating for self-determination within Nigeria. Igboho’s stance brings to the forefront the broader issues of political expression and the right to advocate for autonomy and independence within the framework of the Nigerian state.

The demand for Kanu’s release comes amid a complex backdrop of political, ethnic, and regional tensions in Nigeria, where calls for autonomy and self-determination have been met with varying degrees of resistance by the government. This development is likely to spark further discussions on the nature of activism, the limits of political expression, and the quest for self-determination in Africa’s most populous nation.

As of now, the Nigerian government has not responded to Sunday Igboho’s call. The situation remains a focal point of interest for observers of Nigerian politics, human rights advocates, and international bodies concerned with political freedoms and human rights in the region.
