‘Nnamdi Kanu’s release would have been a gift to Ezeife’ – Abaribe

Abia South’s Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe has said the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, would have been a gift for the late former Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife.

Abaribe called for calm over the judgement of the Supreme Court that refused to release Kanu.

He disclosed this in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by his media adviser, Uchenna Awom.

Abaribe also described Ezeife’s death as a great loss to the people of the Southeast.

According to Abaribe: “Okwadike never hid his feelings and, as such, voiced out his opinion on vexed national issues as they affected his beloved Igbo. He spoke truth to power, no matter whose ox was gored.

“He was a man of panache and candour who carved a national image for himself being a cultural icon, a brave warrior who loved our people so dearly. Okwadike will be sorely missed. His resolute and fearless stand on national discourse would be too hard to replace.

“Ironically, he died on the eve of a day our brother Nnamdi Kanu was denied release by the Supreme Court. It would have been a fitting gift to him.”
