Shehu Sani has urged President Bola Tinubu’s administration to release Nnamdi Kanua, the IPOB’s leader, in accordance with the court’s directive.
Sani, who also claimed to have spent a significant amount of time in prison, urged Nigeria to uphold the law and its commitment to the rule of law.
Shehu Sani urges FG to uphold the law by releasing Nnamdi Kanu.
The ex-federal lawmaker said he would never support a violation of fundamental human rights, stating that the law must be respected.
Sani revealed these while featuring on a Channels Television programme on Thursday evening.
He said there are reasons for self-determination agitations especially in the South-East, thus asking the federato address them.
Sani said, “As a prisoner who has stayed so long in prison, there is no way a person like me will support an open breach of the constitution and a violation of fundamental human rights.
“A court has given an order for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, and if we are a law-abiding country and committed to the rule of law, we should respect the law.”
“One of the problems we have in Nigeria today is the separatists’ agitation in the South Eastern part of Nigeria. If you go to the background of all those separatists, you will see that there was a time in their history when they believed in the indivisibility of the country. Something must have happened along the way,” he added.
