Buhari Can’t Free Nnamdi Kanu Before May 29, Ohanaeze Told

The Arewa Community in Southern Nigeria has faulted the call for the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

The community leader Musa Saidu made the remark in response to the call by the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu.

Iwuanyanwu had urged Buhari to release Kanu before May 29.

However, Saidu faulted said Iwuanyawu’s call. He wondered if the killings in the Southeast would stop if Kanu is released.

In a statement he signed, Saidu said: “Where were they when Kanu was leading IPOB militants to kill innocent people in the South East.

“Not only in the South East, so many members of the Arewa community were attacked in Port Harcourt and nobody said anything, we have the figures, we have even the photos of those killed in cold blood.

“Now they’re clamouring for his release, what guarantee are they giving that the killings will not continue if he is released.”

Recalled Kanu has been detained by the Department of State Services, DSS, since he was extra-ordinarily renditioned from Kenya.

The IPOB leader was brought back to continue his trial before the Nigerian court, over his agitation for Biafra.

Despite being discharged and acquitted by the Court of Appeal, the Federal Government has refused to release Kanu.
