                        Nnamdi Kanu - The leader of the Indegeneous People of Biafra (IPOB) still under detension despite being released by the court

Nigerian music artistes and Nollywood actors under the umbrella of United Nigerian Artists for Peace and Justice (UNAPJ) on Tuesday visited Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje prison.

They also called on the federal government to release Nnamdi Kanu from detention in the interest of peace.

According to them, the visit was to pay homage to Kanu and to show their solidarity to his cause.

The leader of the group, Chinaka Greatson, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu and other political prisoners held in different facilities across Nigeria.

He said: “This group is a collaboration of artists from the movie and music industry.

“The essence is to ensure that there are peace and tranquillity in Nigeria especially the South-East.

“Release Nnamdi Kanu today and you will find out that the South-East will become peaceful.”

Greatson also blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for the continuous detention of Kanu.

He said: “This present judge was doing so well until the president returned from London, she then brought in Sharia Law, into this kind of matter.

“The president’s body language is what is causing the heat we are having.

“President Buhari has made himself the judge and prosecutor at the same time; so we are calling for the immediate release of Kanu.”

In a related news, IPOB members numbering over 3,000, on April 4, matched on the streets of Nnewi, Anambra state, with Biafran flags to protest against what they described as the Sharia trial of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

According to the protesters, who bore placards with inscriptions, and other Biafra-related materials, they were against any secret trial of Nnamdi Kanu. They called for the restoration of Biafra.
