Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has described leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu as a hero grossly misunderstood.
The 39-year-old shared a picture of Kanu in an Instagram post on Friday.
He said he chose to celebrate him even though it’s not his birthday.
“Today is not his birthday but I choose to celebrate this great man today. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. A Hero who is grossly misunderstood.
“But all he truly wants is for Africans to wake up and take serious decisions that will bring lasting peace in Africa. Live long great man,” he wrote.
Kanu has called upon the South-east governors to ban open grazing in the region. He commended the boldness of South-West governors in banning open grazing.
“We wish to humbly and most submissively call upon all the governors of the East, to as a matter of urgency, ban all manner of open grazing in the region in compliance with the 1969 statutory law of Nigeria that banned such provocative and primitive practice by Fulani herdsmen.
“The bold step taken by Yoruba governors in banning open grazing in their region is commendable and as such must be reciprocated and consolidated by a similar pronouncement in the East,” he said.
