The former national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and founder of the defunct United Progressives Party (UPP), Chief Chekwas Okorie, has said that the issue of the embattled leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) can never be solved in a law court as “it is political.” 

Chief Okorie spoke as the chairman of the inauguration ceremony of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Enugu Correspondents’ Chapel. 

He appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government to deploy diplomacy and dialogue in resolving the crisis, as well as attending to other political prisoners of conscience in the country. 

“I, therefore, appeal to the Federal Government of Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari to resolve Nnamdi Kanu’s issue, alongside others who are prisoners of conscience, politically, diplomatically,” he said.
