Controversial Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Kanu has been locked up since he was arrested and repatriated to Nigeria two years ago from Kenya.
The IPOB leader was picked up over his agitation for the actualization of Biafra.
Despite courts ordering Kanu’s release, the Nigerian government has refused to set him free.
In a tweet via his Twitter handle on Tuesday morning, Edochie pleaded with Tinubu, who he described as a man who fought for democracy for three decades, to set Kanu free from the Department of State Security (DSS) custody.
“To our Leader, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, @officialABAT GCFR. The Jagaban,” Edochie tweeted.
“A man who has fought for democracy for 3 decades, A builder & supporter of men & women.
“My President, please release Nnamdi Kanu. A humble request from your son, Yul Edochie.”
