The IPOB leader also clamored for immediately end to the ‘persecution of journalists reporting the truth’ in Nigeria
Kanu said this on his official Twitter page @MaziNnamdiKanu.
He wrote: “As the leader of the Indigenous People of #Biafra (IPOB), I’m calling on the Nigerian government to release Sowore immediately and to cease its persecution of journalists who report the truth.“
