About 15 Senators from the southeast region of Nigeria held a crucial meeting on Wednesday, July 3, with the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), to demand the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

As reported by Vanguard, the federal lawmakers, were led to the parley by the Senator Representing Abia South, Enyinnaya Abaribe.

Even though the meeting was held in camera, however, Senator Abaribe, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, said he was optimistic that the AGF would persuade the Federal Government to heed to the call for Kanu’s release.

He maintained that the continued detention of the IPOB leader was responsible for the rising level of insecurity and agitations in the South East region.

According to him, unless Kanu is released, social and economic activities within the region would remain stagnant.

Abaribe disclosed that he had already met with Kanu at the headquarters of the Department of State Services, DSS.

He said the embattled IPOB leader agreed to abide by any condition the FG would give for his release.

The meeting between the lawmakers and the AGF came barely after all the Governors from the South East region resolved to approach President Bola Tinubu to beg for Kanu’s freedom.

Earlier, about 50 members of the House of Representatives from various parts of the country, urged President Tinubu to free the detained IPOB leader.
