Yul Edochie Begs President Tinubu For Nnamdi Kanu's Release

Yul Edochie, a controversial actor in Nollywood, has called upon President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Kanu has been in custody since his arrest and extradition from Kenya two years ago. His detention is a result of his advocacy for the realization of Biafra.

Despite court orders for Kanu’s release, the Nigerian government has refused to comply.

In a tweet shared on Tuesday morning via his Twitter handle, Edochie appealed to Tinubu, whom he described as a figure who has fought for democracy for three decades, to ensure Kanu’s freedom from the custody of the Department of State Security (DSS).

“To our esteemed leader, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, @officialABAT GCFR, The Jagaban,” Edochie tweeted.

“You are a man who has tirelessly fought for democracy for three decades, a builder and supporter of men and women.

“My President, I kindly request the release of Nnamdi Kanu. This is a humble plea from your son, Yul Edochie.”
