Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has advised the Federal Government to ensure that rule of law and due process is followed in the prosecution of leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
He said conscientious effort must be made by the Federal Government to allay the fear of some Nigerians that Kanu is not being prosecuted because he comes from a particular section of the country.
Governor Wike, who made this assertion during an interview on Arise Television on Thursday, explained that irrespective of the differences the arrested IPOB leader has with Rivers State government, he suggest that due process must be followed in his prosecution.
“We must not make hullabaloo about the prosecution of Nnamdi Kanu. I don’t agree with his principle. I have come out and said you (Kanu) cannot annex my State to be your own. But that does not mean that you’ll not allow the law to take its course.”
