A  chieftain of Nigerian governing party, the All Progressives Congress, Gerald Onuchukwu, has urged the Federal Government to tamper justice with mercy and release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

He said releasing him would make President Buhari to win back the hearts of the people of the southeast who are aggrieved on account of marginlaization.

The southeast, he said , suffers infrastructural decay amid others which gave birth to the ongoing agitation.

Asked if he supports the call for the release of the detained IPOB leader, he said he strongly adds his voice to the barrage of calls asking for his release to win back the hearts of the people of the region.

According to him, ''I strongly add my voice to the call for the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu. The gesture will be a great honour to us and it would also be a way of winning back the hearts of the South- Easterners as a whole.''

Continuing he said, ''If you look at Kanu and the IPOB struggle, you would find out that the agitation  is centered on marginalization. If the issues raised by the Igbo are addressed, the agitation would slowly die down.''

He lamented the state of the bad road across the southeast adding that there is no federal presence in the region.

'' For instance, the bad roads, problem of erosion and lack of Federal presence in the South- East are major complains of people in the region. So what we are saying is that the Federal government should release Kanu unconditionally, and then it would be easy to talk about reconciliation.'', he added.
