The immediate-past National Chairman of All Progressives 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 all the National Assembly members from the South-East geo-political zone for keeping silent over the continued detention of Director of Radio Biafra and Leader, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.
Speaking to Vanguard, Umeh lampooned the lawmakers of South-Eastern extraction for their inaction in a serious issue concerning their region.
“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,” Umeh said.
The Department of State Services (DSS) has continued devising wasy of retaining Kanu in their custody despite different court verdicts ordering his release. New charges brought against the Radio Biafra director include treason.
