‘It’s surprising Nnamdi Kanu is seeking political solution’ – Ex-VP’s aide, Laolu Akande

1 Min Read

Former spokesman of ex-Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Akande Laolu, on Thursday said it’s surprising that Nnamdi Kanu, pro-Biafra agitator, is seeking a political solution to his trial and continued detention.

Laolu said considering his past antecedents, Kanu should have insisted on court settlement rather than political solution.

He spoke while featuring on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.

According to Laolu: “I am surprised that he is trying to get a political solution.

“I think Mr Nnamdi Kanu should be bold enough to check out these things in court but apparently he is not. I would have expected him, based on what we know about him to say: ‘Look let us go to court’.”

On Wednesday, South-East senators appealed to President Bola Tinubu to order Kanu’s release.

Led by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, the lawmakers claimed that unless Kanu is released, the social and economic activities in the South-East zone would continue to be stagnant.
