Fmr Senator Owie calls for immediate release of IPOB leader


A former Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Rowland Owie, has called for the immediate release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu by President Muhammadu Buhari before his continued detention degenerates into something the government cannot control.

According to the statement he released at the weekend he asked Buhari as a matter of urgency to heed the voice of reason and release Nnamdi Kanu.

He said: “I wish to remind President Muhammadu Buhari that every elected leader in Nigeria becomes a prisoner of palace jesters around him and become isolated from realities outside Aso Rock.

“President Buhari should open the prison door now and come out and face the reality.

“I urge President Buhari to release Kanu, the leader of the IPOB, now and dialogue with them.

“The President should not listen to palace jesters who are telling him that they are militants like Boko Haram. They are not.

“While Boko Haram leadership is not visible, the IPOB leadership is visible. Buhari should act now.

“A Bini parable says the king that folds his hands while his palace is burning ends up being a tenant.”
