IPOB lauds Abaribe, Ekweremadu, Fayose, Kayode, others for role over Kanu's release

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra ( IPOB) has commended some South East , and South South leaders for their role and instrumentality in the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu after spending over one year in Kuje prison.
Kanu after meeting his stringent bail conditions last Friday was finally released from the prison, a development that has elicited wide jubilation among Biafran activists and sympathisers.
IPOB in a statement issued by its Media and Publicity Officer, Emma Powerful,  acknowledged the patriotic efforts of some South East , and South- South leaders as well as groups over the release of its leader.
The release particularly commended the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu; Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe; Chief Tochukwu Uchendu; Eliot Uko of Igbo Youth Movement; and Maria Okwo of Eastern Consultative Assembly.
Others include: Gov. Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State; former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani- Kayode; former Central Bank Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo; Professor Pat Utomi ; and Osita Chidoka.
"We are not unmindful of the positive role played by some individuals at various stages of the process to release our leader. On this note we wish to commend some South East and South South political leaders, especially those that exhibited rare courage to openly identify with the plight of our leader and the need to free him from detention.
" Of worthy mention are the likes of Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senator Enyinaya Abaribe, Prof. Nwala of Ala-Igbo Foundation, the very fearless Osita Chidoka, Tochukwu Uchendu, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, Pat Utomi, Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA)".
IPOB also acknowledged the collaborative efforts of some associations such as Igbo Women Assembly (IWA), Igbo Youth  Movement (IYM), and the Uchenna Madu - led Movement for the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).
"We also acknowledge the immense contributions of Femi Fani-Kayode and the honorary Biafran Gov. Ayodele Fayoshe who did what no South East or South South governor had the courage to do.
"We are eternally grateful to the insightful analysis of Barr. Goddy Uwazuruike of Aka Ikenga on national television that turned the tide of public opinion on this case.
" We also thank Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor and the entire legal team, but above all,  we praise the Most High God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama for reaffirming to the world that only HIM determined that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should come and not man."
IPOB also called for the release of Biafran activists and Niger Delta Avengers still in detention, vowing to push ahead with the agitation despite resistances from government. 
"At IPOB, we do not abandon our own. Bright Chimezie Ishinwa, Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi, Chidiebere Onwudiwe and others must be released including those abducted from Niger Delta in the name of the war against Niger Delta Avengers.
"Our focus is 100% on those left behind in Kuje and other detention facilities around Nigeria, both IPOB and Niger Delta Avengers detainees. They too must be released with immediate effect or there will be no peace."
