Traditional rulers of the South East States, under the platform of the South East Council of Traditional Rulers, have urged President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, from detention into the hands of the Igbo traditional and religious leaders.

They also want the President to show sagacity, pragmatism, statesmanship and fatherliness by causing the IPOB to be de-proscribed as a terrorist organization.

Obi Nnaemeka Achebe, CFR, the Chairman, Anambra State Traditional Rulers Council, H.M Igwe Amb. L.O.C. Agubuzu, OON, the Chairman, Enugu State Traditional Rulers Council and H.M. Eze Dr. E.C. Okeke, the Chairman Imo State Traditional Rulers Council.
