Senator Rowland Owie has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to order the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement released at the weekend, Senator Rowland Owie  appealed to President Buhari not to heed the voice of those advising him that IPOB is a militant group.
“I wish to remind President Muhammadu Buhari that every elected leader in Nigeria becomes a prisoner of palace jesters around him and become isolated from realities outside Aso Rock”.
“President Buhari should open the prison door now and come out and face the reality”.
“I urge President Buhari to release Kanu, the leader of the IPOB, now and dialogue with them”.
“The President should not listen to palace jesters who are telling him that they are militants like Boko Haram. They are not”.
“While Boko Haram leadership is not visible, the IPOB leadership is visible. Buhari should act now”.
“A Bini parable says the king that folds his hands while his palace is burning ends up being a tenant.”
Roland Stephen Owie was elected Senator for the Edo South constituency of Edo State, Nigeria at the start of the Nigerian Fourth Republic, running on the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) platform.
