The group said Abubakar Malami should do that urgently if he has no subterranean motive to instigate the economic collapse of South East of Nigeria should the self-determination group implement her threat to call for a full month of sit-at-home order.
DAILY POST reports that Kanu, who is currently detained at the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS has been scheduled to resume his trial on October 21.
The trial, which was previously billed to commence shortly after he was rearrested from an undisclosed country, was adjourned by the Federal High Court of Nigeria, Abuja following the inability of the DSS to produce the secessionist in court.

The Nigerian Army says its engineers are not constructing RUGA settlement in the South-East as being portrayed and speculated by an outlawed online radio.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the acting Deputy Director, Army Public Relations in the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Abubakar Abdullahi, said that the allegation that engineers from the Division are currently constructing a RUGA settlement in the South-East is baseless.
He said that the fabricated report had it that military engineers are building the settlement between Ochima and Affa in Igbo-Etiti and Udi Local Government Areas of Enugu State.
“Though this inciting broadcast emanates from a source bereft of any credibility whatsoever, there is need, however, to present the facts clearly for the sake of posterity.
“It must be emphasised that the Nigerian Army engineers are not constructing any RUGA settlement in any part of Nigeria.
“Rather, the engineers are currently constructing a military training facility between Ochima and Affa in Igbo-Etiti and Udi Local Government Areas in Enugu State respectively.
“Upon completion, the facilities will accommodate troops during training and aid to improve their efficiency in protecting law-abiding citizens across the South-East.
