Renowned Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, passionately urged the Federal Government to immediately release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Igboho’s plea, conveyed through a viral video on Tuesday, coincided with Kanu’s ongoing trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Kanu, who appeared in court on Monday, February 26, 2024, for the first time following a Supreme Court ruling on December 15, 2023, has been in custody since June 2021.

Igboho emphasised Kanu’s innocence and called for an end to political maneuvers, noting that Kanu should be released to reunite with his family.


In the video, Igboho said, “Release Nnamdi Kanu. Stop politics. This guy didn’t do anything. Today is February 27, 2024. Release him, let him go, and stay with his family.

“This guy just fights for his people in the Southeast like me that I’m fighting for my people in Yorubaland.

“Release him, let him go. Stop these political games. Release Kanu, let him go home, please release him.”
