The pleading came on a heel following Kanu’s alleged hate speech on Radio Biafra London, which led to his arrest in Nigeria on October 2015 while coming in from United Kingdom where he based.

Kanu has been arraigned on different court charges and has been granted bail by the Abuja high court under ruling of Justice Adeniyi Ademola, but was later arrested and detained by the order of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Following his detention since October 2015, there has been an uneasy calm in the southeast geopolitical zone of the country the main region agitating for a Biafran Nation.

While canvassing for Kanu’s release, The Director General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Mr Osita Okechukwu has called on anyone who have access to Nnamdi Kanu to please, tell him to stop calling Nigeria a zoo.

Mr Okechukwu, while speaking with newsmen after attending a popular radio programme, Freedom Square Enugu state, he revealed that he has been pleading with President Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafrans held in detention.

According to him; Mr President is just back. We will continue to plead on his (Kanu) behalf because we told Mr President that, this is a young man from England. That, actually we don’t know his stand in Nigeria. Give him pardon.

Mr President asked me, Osita, have you talked with him?

Continuing, he said; I will find time to talk with him. But anybody that has access to talk with him should tell him that Nigeria is not a zoo where you want to bring Igbo out.
