How I Worked For Nnamdi Kanu’s Release From Kuje Prison – Charles Soludo

Professor Charles Soludo, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate for November 6, 2021, has disclosed the efforts he put in for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB from detention in 2016.

According to Soludo, when he learned that Nnamdi Kanu, had been imprisoned in Kuje prison in 2016, he highlighted an international press conference to demand his release.

Kanu was released from Kuje prison four weeks after his press speech, according to Soludo.

Soludo made his submission during the Arise TV governorship election discussion in Anambra.

Soludo said: “2016, 2017 I am on record speaking I did say Nnamdi Kanu, I didn’t know him, I never heard of him, IPOB. But when I heard, he was in Kuje prison and the court ordered to release him and the court judgement to release him and they refused. I networked with other prominent Igbos to go to Kuje and dialogue with him and I addressed the international press conference to ask for his release and thereafter, people started to visit Kuje and three, four weeks later, he was released.

“I may not agree with him with his view of terms of destinations or even the means, but i believe in a democracy you put everything on the table the south-east leaders, religious, the bishops, the traditional rulers the youths all the groups we are now working on a consensus that we need to dialogue on this to have a solution.”
