4. Biafra News: ‘Standing As Kanu’s Surety Is Needless’, IPOB Tells Soludo
The governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, recently called for the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who has been held in custody since 2021.

The group emphasized that Kanu had been released from custody by the court of appeals on October 13, 2022, and did not require bond because there was no charge against him at the time.
They stated these in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, on Monday. Read More…
