Prof Jerry Gana called for the release of Nnamdi Kanu at the 17th anniversary of Igbo Youth Movement in Enugu. He called on Muhammadu Buhari to release the leader of indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) who has done nothing but called for the restoration of Biafra.

Gana stated that Nnamdi Kanu who has been in detention since October 14th, 2015 has the right to call for self-determination, thus his arrest is a breach of human right. He reiterated the circumstances that led to Nnamdi Kau’s agitation.

The formal minister of information and national orientation stated that Nnamdi Kanu is only responding to Nigeria as a failed state that worsened under Buhari. Nnamdi Kanu is the spark plug for Biafra restoration and arresting him was another way of fueling the flame of Biafra that has left Nigeria bleeding since last year. He argued that had true federalism been implemented, Nnamdi Kanu’s agitation would not have gained the 100% backing and support it has today.
“Release Nnamdi Kanu and restructure Nigeria which is the only solution,” he said while responding to questions. He was filled with smile and expressed satisfaction that despite being in prison, Nnamdi still commands respect.

Since Nnamdi Kanu was arrested, there have been uneasy calm in the old eastern region that is Biafra. Youths, fathers and mothers came out on the street with placards which often destabilises economic activities due to the mammoth crowd that troops out in solidarity. The federal government of Nigeria has shown cluelessness in handling the situation which has only worsened or heated the polity.

Buhari resorted to using of maximum force against unarmed and peaceful Biafrans that are only taking advantage of the tenet of democracy. Nigerian forces under the command of Buhari have brutally shot to kill Biafran agitators. Shooting unarmed Biafrans was the solution Buhari can offer and the decision only worsened the situation as agitators get motivated instead of retreating.
Gana faulted Buhari’s approach and cautioned that Killing agitating youths will never solve any problem. “Had we embraced true federalism, all these won’t be happening. The youths agitating are doing what should be done to save this country” he said
Gana is of the view that only releasing Nnamdi Kanu will bring an end to the many problems Nigeria is facing. “Release Nnamdi Kanu and all these problems will be over, very simple"
