The Association of South East Town Unions, ASETU, also known as Igbo Town Unions, has pleaded with President Mohammadu Buhari to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to their custody, promising to produce him anytime he is needed and at any location.
They Prayed to President Buhari to forget the logic and legality of their request and heed their request, noting that Kanu’s continued detention has brought more insecurity to the country, particularly in their communities, than when he was free.
The Igbo communities cited instances such as in the Niger Delta and North East areas where dialogue and compromise resolved problems of insecurity in the regions other than the use of legalities.
They made the plea in an open letter to President Buhari after an emergency Extra-Ordinary National Caucus meeting in Awka, Anambra State.
The letter was signed by its National President, Chief Emeka Diwe; National Secretary, Gideon Adikwuru; Chairman, Board of Trustees, Dr. I. I. Onwubuya and presidents of the body in the five states of the SouthEast region.
