At their Udo Palace, Eze Israel Kanu and his wife, Ugoeze Nnenne Kanu, said they are concerned about the health of the Radio Biafra director, stressing that they fear something bad might have happened while in detention.

The monarch and his wife lamented that the agony of the family has been compounded due to their inability to have access to the detained activist, noting that they are not sure that he is alive.

According to Vanguard, the bitter parents urged the federal government to order the release of their son from detention if he still is living.

Eze Kanu said: “I am pleading with the federal government to release my son. Let his freedom be restored. I am aware that in Nigeria the Constitution guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

“I am surprised that my son is being detained. I have been asking why he is being held without getting an answer.” 

Nnamdi’s mother, Ugoeze Kanu, said she wondered why he should be made to suffer for saying the truth.

“The Bible tells us that truth shall set us free. But in Nigeria we are being made to understand that truth is bitter and can even lead to death.

“As a mother, it is painful; I will not deny him, he is my son, but in a democracy I know there is freedom of speech,” Ugoeze said.

The monarch and his wife said that their son is not a trouble maker, and his campaign was a reflection of the mind of the majority of people in the southeast geopolitical zone.

They said that their son who was born during the Nigeria-Biafra war, had never discussed his pro-Biafran activism with them. They added that they cannot guarantee influencing their son to drop the agitation.

The worried parents stressed that their son is an adult and fully matured; hence, he is able to express his mind on any issue.

On Saturday, October 17, the Radio Biafra director was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) as soon as he got to Nigeria from the United Kingdom.
