The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Archbishop Chukwuma, a member of the South East Elders Forum, made the appeal in Enugu on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 while supporting the call by some leaders in the zone for Kanu’s release.
“We continue to say it that Mr President should grant amnesty to Nnamdi Kanu at this time around for peace to reign.
“The continual detention of Kanu will continue to bring agitations and tension in Nigeria; I have said it before that this must be doused by releasing Kanu.
“We, Igbos and we Christians are ready to put him under control. There should be no fear at all.
“The President and people in government should not be afraid.
“We have said it even to the Sultan when he visited Enugu that it is injustice for a court to declare him innocent and still detain him.
“Nnamdi Kanu is not a threat to Nigeria, rather they should use his ideas to develop Nigeria,” he reportedly said.
Chukwuma further pleaded with the government to adopt an all-inclusive government.
He said: “This will give all zones fair and equal representation in the nation’s development and progress.”
