The rights advocacy group also called for immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and for the secessionist group to embrace genuine dialogues with the government.

However, here is one vital reason Nnamdi Kanu shouldn't be released now after HURIWA sent a petition to President Muhammadu Buhari:
Nnamdi Kanu's Release Will Fuel More Agitations In The South-East
Nnamdi Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and some of his supporters tend to take his unlawful instructions to cause tension in the South-East. If Nnamdi Kanu is released now by the federal government of Nigeria, there is every tendency that he will fuel agitations for Nigeria's breakup. If Nnamdi Kanu must be released, he must beg the federal government for pardon and promise never to agitate for Nigeria's break up again.

Finally, I urge all Nigerians to be patient as the federal government is still investigating all the charges leveled against Nnamdi Kanu.
