The South-East Governors Forum has resolved to meet with President Bola Tinubu to seek the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Kanu, facing terrorism charges at the Federal High Court in Abuja, has been detained since his controversial rearrest and extradition from Kenya in June 2021.

The governors of Imo (Hope Uzodinma), Ebonyi (Francis Nwifuru), Abia (Alex Otti), Anambra (Charles Soludo), and Enugu (Peter Mbah) held a closed-door meeting in Enugu on Tuesday. Following the meeting, they issued a communiqué expressing their decision to pursue Kanu’s release.

Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma, the chairperson of the forum, read out the communiqué to reporters. He also highlighted the forum’s resolution to address the issue of insecurity in the South-East region.
