Veteran Nollywood actress Rita Edochie has declared that “Nigeria will never know peace” if the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is not released.
Since his arrest and extradition from Kenya to Nigeria in June 2021, Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Rita took to her Instagram to lament the continued detention of the IPOB leader.
She also urged the people of the South-East to come together and demand Kanu’s release, adding that they would only achieve their push for the presidency with the support of Kanu.
“The continuous detention of mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu will keep dividing Nigeria. So long as Mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu is still being detained, Nigeria will never know peace. Ndi Igbo I laugh, ndi Igbo wake up. Onye Igbo can never smell presidency without Mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu,” she wrote.
“It is a spiritual thing. Fight for your own first and God will finish the battle. Ndi Igbo let nothing happen to our great brother Nnamdi Kanu because it’s going to be our worst experience. Chukwu okike abiama is waiting for Ndi Igbo to act. God is not sleeping.”
