The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has called on the Department of State Services (DSS) to release Ukamaka Ejezie, a woman popularly known as ‘Mama Biafra.’
Kanu made the appeal through his brother, Emmanuel Kanu, who visited him in custody on Monday.
Kanu said the woman who has been acting as his mother since his parents died in 2020 was arrested during his last court appearance in Abuja on May 18, 2022.
”I saw her at the DSS detention cell after her clothes were washed and spread on the wall.. I demand that she be released because she committed no crime.
” She is an old woman and since my mother died I have taken her as my mother. The DSS should release her”, Kanu was quoted as saying.
