The Yoruba Nation agitator accused the government of playing politics with Kanu’s trial.

Popular Yoruba Nation agitator, Samuel Adeyemo, popularly known as Igboho, has appealed to the Federal Government for the released of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

In a video that has gone viral on social media, Igboho could be heard appealing passionately for the release of the IPOB leader, stating that Kanu’s only crime is that he was fighting for his people.

The video, which surfaced on Tuesday, February 27th, coincided with the continuation of the IPOB leader’s trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Kanu, whose case was further adjourned on December 15, 2023 by the ruling of the Supreme Court, appeared in court again on Monday, February 26.

Ever since he was extradited to Nigeria from Kenya in 2021, Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) as the Federal Government pressed multiple charges against him including bordering treason, among others.

Igboho, however, argued that the IPOB leader is innocent and called for an end to what he perceives as a political manoeuvring by the government.

“Release Nnamdi Kanu. Stop politics. This guy didn’t do anything. Today is February 27, 2024. Release him, let him go, and stay with his family.

“This guy just fights for his people in the Southeast like me that I’m fighting for my people in Yorubaland.

“Release him, let him go. Stop these political games. Release Kanu, let him go home, please release him,” Igboho said in the video.
