Olusegun Bamgbose, the National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, has told President Muhammadu Buhari to release self determination campaigners, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho, to the Southern Governors.
Nnamdi Kanu is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, after he was a few weeks ago rearrested in Kenya and bundled back to Nigeria while Sunday gboho was arrested in neighbouring Benin Republic on Monday night and is currently in detention in Cotonou.
SleekGist reports that Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, while Sunday Igboho Is a leading advocate for Oduduwa Republic.
Bamgbose noted that the nation is undoubtedly passing through a very critical moment in its political history and that the future seems to be unpredictable, warning that stakeholders must take extreme caution to avoid disintegration as the unity of Nigeria has never been this weak.
“The truth remains that in any part of the world, where there is unfair treatment, injustice, and inequality, agitation becomes inevitable and legitimate. You can’t push someone and tell him or her where to fall,” the senior lawyer and 2023 presidential hopeful noted.
“We can’t claim to be one nation when there is obvious discrimination in terms of clan or tribe. Agitation is a natural reflection of what goes on in society.
“The Igbos have always complained that they are heavily marginalized in the scheme of things, while the Yorubas are aggrieved that Fulani herders are kidnapping their people, raping their women, destroying their farms, killing them, the one million naira question begging for answers is, how has President Buhari addressed these critical issues?
