Buhari disrespects Igbo by continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu — CUPP Spokesperson

Spokesperson of the Opposition, Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere has taken a swipe at President  Muhammadu Buhari and the Federal Government over the continued detention of the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, despite three different court orders.

In a statement yesterday, Ugochinyere who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for  Ideato North and Ideato South Federal Constituency in Imo State, said that Kanu’s continued detention despite these court judgments shows that the government does not have respect for the rule of law.

The CUPP Spokesman who noted that the development is a proof that President Buhari does not have regards for the Igbo people, said that  for Buhari’s disdain towards them, Igbo,Ideato and Imo people should pay him  and party back by mobilising massively against all candidates of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) at all levels.

It would be recalled that a Court of Appeal in Abuja acquitted Kanu of the terrorism charges filed against him and ordered his release.

The Federal High Court, Umuahia, also ordered Kanu’s release and ordered the Federal Government to return him to Kenya where he was illegally extradited, just as a High Court in Abia State had also given a judgment in favour of the IPOB leader.

The statement read, “I have observed with dismay the continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Federal Government despite three recent court judgments in his favour.
