Catholic Bishops Beg Tinubu To Release Nnamdi Kanu

The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, has begged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to explore all civil remedies to release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, in the best interest of the South-East.

This is coming, barely 24 hours after Kanu’s bail application was rejected by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

It was gathered that the CBCN President, Most Reverend Lucius Ugorji, led this out during the episcopal ordination of the Auxiliary Bishop of Orlu Diocese in Imo State on Wednesday.

Most Rev. Ugorji believed that the release of Kanu will pave the way to economic prosperity and security in the south east.
