Popular Nollywood actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo, begs President Muhammadu Buhari to release the arrested leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
The actor posted a video on his Instagram page, pleading with President Muhammadu Buhari while celebrating his 60th birthday.
He said that he was saddened by the loss of lives and insecurity in the South-East but begged the President to use his executive power to release Kanu.
“My dear president and father of the nation, Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, commander in chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I hope this message meets you well, sir. My name is Kanayo O. Kanayo. I’m an actor and a lawyer, and I hold a national honour as a member of the Order of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
“Sir, on this occasion of my 60th birthday, I want to make an appeal to you as a son and a patriotic citizen whose industry contributes meaningfully to the nation’s GDP.”
“I’m deeply pained by the loss of lives, wanton killings, and general insecurity in the land.”
“You’re the father of the nation with numerous sons and daughters, including Mazi Kanu. Sir, the bulk stops at your table. I know and appreciate that Kanu’s case is before the court and you usually do not like to interfere with court cases, but at this stage of heightened tension, you are a president with executive powers.” He said
“My appeal, sir, is to biko release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. It is my 60th birthday appeal. Thank you, sir. ” He added
