Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been urged to be released by a coalition of political parties operating under the auspices of the Coalition of United Political Party (CUPP) in Nigeria.

The group said that the government should abide by the decisions of the Federal High Court in Abuja and the High Court in Umuahia, the capital of the Abia State, both of which ordered Kanu’s unconditional release from the Department of State Services’ custody (DSS).

Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, the coalition’s spokesperson, also pleaded with President Buhari to heed the voice of the UN, pointing out that Kanu’s release would calm tension in the nation, particularly in the South-East, and would also encourage widespread participation in the present election process.

According to the Nigerian Tribune, Ugochinyere made the appeal on Thursday while speaking to reporters at his rural home in Akokwa, Ideato Local Government Area, Imo State.

Kanu’s declining health, as reported by his attorneys, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, alarmed Ugochinyere, who urged President Buhari to promptly release Kanu from custody without further delay.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the Ideato Federal Constituency in the upcoming general elections questioned why the federal government had continued to treat the series of statements made by relevant authorities calling for the unconditional release of the IPOB leader with contempt and mockery.

He was cited as stating, “I call on President Muhammadu Buhari to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the sake of justice, equity, and fairness as a human rights activist and a champion for these principles.”

He also bemoaned the country’s ongoing security issues, stressing that the federal government should use the same strategy to deal with agitations in the South-East to ease tensions in the country after dealing with those in the Niger Delta, the North-East, and the Boko Haram sect.
