A committee of the House of Representatives has commenced talks with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) over the sit-at-home order in the Southeast.
The chairman of the committee, Obinna Aguocha, revealed this in a statement issued on Thursday to journalists in Abuja.
Aguocha said the committee engaged with the incarcerated separatist leader to end the sit-at-home order in the Southeast.
It would be recalled that Kanu has been in detention for over two years, and his supporters have been demanding his release, but the Federal Government has yet to heed the plea.
Aguocha said the engagement with Kanu is yielding results.
“As a part of the search for a lasting solution, we have also engaged with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. I am happy to announce significant progress in this regard, particularly on the need to put a stop to the Monday sit-at-home that has crippled the economy of the southeast,” he said.
He noted that the committee is also interacting with service chiefs and other security agencies.
