Nnamdi Kanu: Doyin Okupe asks FG to release IPOB leader
In a previous report by Legit.ng, a former presidential media aide, Dr. Doyin Okupe, called on the federal government to release Kanu, if it would restore peace in the southeast region.
Okupe stated that the freedom and or life of the IPOB leader was more important than the forthcoming November 6 governorship in the state.
