The immediate past chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance APGA and Senatorial candidate of APGA in the forthcoming re-run election in the
Anambra Central Senatorial zone Chief Victor Umeh has blamed the representatives of the South East in the National Assembly for keeping quiet over the continued detention of Pro-Biafra activist Nnamdi Kanu and the recent clamp down on protesters demanding for his release.
In a recent interview with Vanguard Newspaper, Chief Umeh said:
“Our National Assembly members should have advised the Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu first and then intervene in the dispute to ensure that frayed nerves are calmed on the issue, instead of keeping silent while the agitation is escalating.”
IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu still remains in the custody of the DSS despite a Federal High injunction ordering his immediate release.
