Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), issued an appeal for calm and peace in “Biafraland” following the refusal of his most recent bail application. Nollywood actress Rita Edochie responded.
Recall that Justice Nyako postponed the pro-Biafra activist’s case to November 14, 2022, pending the Appeal Court’s ruling.
This comes after the Biafra activist submitted a new application seeking his release on bail while the Federal Government’s treasonable felony charge against him is being resolved. However, the petition was dropped on Tuesday at the hearing.
Kanu, the head of the Indigenous People of Biafra, is currently on trial for treason, allegedly leading an illegal organization, and bail skipping.
In response to the development, Rita Edochie posted a video of Nnamdi Kanu pleading with his supporters to remain calm in court earlier today via her Instagram account.
In the video, Nnamdi Kanu is heard expressing his desire for peace throughout the entire region and stating that he is fighting to protect the people, not to murder them.
“LISTEN TO ONYE NDU ANYI,” she said in the video’s caption. NNAMDI OKWU KANU MAZI.
“HE IS BEING DETAINED FOR THE REASON THAT WE ARE FIGHTING TO DEFEND OUR PEOPLE, NOT TO KILL THEM. Therefore, STOP KILLING UNDER THE SUSPENSION OF IPOB. You’re doing fine, my great brother. I adore you.
