Anambra State Chairman of the defunct Nigeria Peoples Party, Guy Ikokwu, says the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu did not commit any treasonable offence.
Ikokwu, in an interview with Vanguard, said revered author and Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, established ‘Radio Kudirat’ the same manner Nnamdi Kanu set up ‘Radio Biafra’.
Consequently, he urged the Federal Government to release without delay the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra.
“The issue of Radio Biafra is not treasonable. Radio Biafra is digital instrument registered in United Kingdom or America. It is not the first time.”
“Professor Wole Soyinka had Radio Kudirat, done abroad and broadcasting to Nigeria. NADECO endorsed such foreign radios by Nigerians. It is a matter of freedom of information.”
“If Kanu is guilty of treason on account of Radio Biafra then millions of Nigerians are guilty of treason in the social media because it is a digital matter now. You take your smart phone and say whatever you like – good, bad, rubbish, exemplary, etc.”
