A former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has hinted that the Igbo Caucus at the National Assembly have been working to ensure the release of the leader of the Biafra agitators, Nnamdi Kanu.
He spoke in a lecture titled, “The Igbo in Diaspora: A Perspective” delivered virtually in Pretoria, South Africa, on Sunday, and was contained in a statement issued by his Media Adviser, Uche Anichukwu.
According to him, the Caucus had in the past helped agitators in the region on several issues, imploring Igbo in the Diaspora to speak against violence in the Southeast region.
“Let me also assure you that the South-East Caucus of the National Assembly is not resting on its oars.
“We are working quietly and surely to address these issues, including finding a political solution to the Mazi Nnamdi Kanu matter.
“We did it before in the case of Chief Ralph Uwazuruike in 2007. We also did it in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in 2017. And God willing, and with your support and prayers, we will succeed again in the matter of Nnamdi kanu to promote peace and stability in our region.”
