Soludo, Utomi, other South East leaders demand immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu

Some Igbo leaders have demanded the unconditional release of the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Addressing journalists on the detention of Mr. Kanu, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Charles Soludo, described the continued detention of Mr. Kanu as unacceptable and an abuse of Mr. Kanu’s right to ‘legitimate agitation”.

Mr. Soludo was in the company of other Igbo leaders including former presidential aide, Pat Utomi, and former head of Nigeria’s electricity regulator, Sam Amadi.

The former bank chief said Nigeria cannot thrive in an atmosphere devoid of the “democratic freedom of speech”.

The leaders also condemned the failure of the federal government and its security agencies to obey court rulings, saying the “plan by government to only obey favourable court rulings” is unhealthy for the peace of Nigeria.

Mr. Kanu, whose group is calling for an independent Igbo country of Biafra, is being prosecuted for treason by the Nigeria government.

    Although this demand by Soludo and co. is good but belated, I hope it is not a political move to advance their own agenda.

        OLODO, its Muhammadu not Mohamed, because even the Mohammed is a double M. So many illiterates without knowledge of the after math of a divided nation just keep ranting. Make una dey go outside the map of Nigeria form una country, no body go hold una, but our map too fine make we cut am to aladeen pieces. Gosh, i hate commenting on political brouhaha

        • Otile

          Magu,
          I am not an illiterate. The only reason I call him Mohamed is because that is what is written on the certificate he presented to the world. I don’t know where you saw Muhammadu or Mohammed in his certificate.

        • Chym

          But you elected an irredeemable illiterate Buhari?

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    The beginning of the end for certificate forger and perjurer Muhammadu Buhari!!!

    political prostitutes…using it for their own gain…utomi after being overlooked for a position in buhari’s cabinet is now playing political prostitute….every Nigerian has the right to freedom of speech but none has the right to import Arms and ammunition or install illegal transmitters in furtherance of overthrowing the government of the day.
    there are reps, senators, governors who they can channel their demands through….attempting to overthrow the fg violently will always result in a charge of treason and sadly the charge of treason is not a bailable offense…Ecowas court orders are not binding…

    • Otile

      Did you say ‘overthrowing government of the day’? There you go, Buhari has not overthrown a government. Damned hypocrite.

      • dami

        Continue living in fools paradise…Buhari is not on trial here…Kanu et al are the ones on trial.

        • Otile

          Reason well. By putting Kanu on trial senseless Buhari put himself on trial too. If he is not on trial why is the court of law ordering him to release Kanu? Some of you should learn some basic law before you displaying your mumudity to the public.

          • dami

            No Nigerian court has ordered Kanu to be released and like I said ECOWAS court decisions are not binding on member states…they are only persuasive in nature.

          • Otile

            You are giving indeed saying that ECOWAS court is right by Buhari law is law of the jungle. Therefore tell Mohamed Buhari to behave.

          • dami

            Rather tell Kanu the truth…you can talk and express yourself…but importing arms and running an illegal radio station with intention to overthrow the government of the day won’t be tolerated any where in the world…

          • Otile

            You are indeed saying that ECOWAS court is right but Buhari law is
            law of the jungle. Therefore tell Mohamed Buhari to behave.

          • dami

            I’m saying ECOWAS court’s decision is of no consequence…ceremonial in nature..

          • Otile

            This is your opinion, but the world knows that ECOWAS court is not there for fun, and they know who is the criminal thumbing his nose at the court.

          • dami

            No, Not opinion…not my opinion…rather it is a fact in law…ask any lawyer.

          • dami

            Would Be nice if you mentioned the court and the judge or even pasted a link here for all to see to back up your claim.
            Treason is not a balilable offense as written in our laws in black and white…so not sure where you got your own laws from…judges don’t have discretion in the matter…once the charge is treason bail is impossible.

    …a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Charles Soludo, described the continued detention of Mr. Kanu as unacceptable and an abuse of Mr. Kanu’s right to ‘legitimate agitation”.

    “abuse of Mr. Kanu’s right”, I agree, but “…right to legitimate agitation”? I don’t think so! Kanu was soliciting for donations around the world to buy arms as well as issuing threats against Nigeria.

    The Nigerian justice system is inviting pressure and criticisms by delaying the case which should have ended long time ago with a death sentence on Kanu. And Kanu would have become distant memory by now. This is a very serious crime against the state; and people get death sentence for far lesser crimes in Nigeria.

    • Otile

      So you are wishing the fate of Saro Wiwa on Kanu. If Imam comes back alive he may one day decide to invade your village and hang your kinsmen as he hanged Ken Wiwa. Traitor

  • Ola

    Where have these So Called Igbo Leaders been hiding all these years ?

    A man that has vowed to carve a territory out of a country and not recognize its government or leaders is now a freedom fighter whose rights must be recognized.

    First let him renounce Biafra and recognize Nigeria and the government of Nigeria , else he stays behind bars or can move back to England where he came from in the first place. Case Closed.

    • Benue

      Ola with all due respect you sound like a racist and tribalist. The laws of Nigeria that was used by the courts to determine Mr. Kanu’s release was not written by Nnamdi Kanu. The Nigerian courts has determined the he should be release. Holding Kanu is against the law. Nobody is a above the law not even the President of Nigeria.

      If Nigeria is to progress one of the first steps is for laws to be obeyed. Did you see what happened in the United States when the Courts overturned the Executive Order and Travel ban from some muslim countries?

      • Ola

        Benue, first of all , there is nothing like racist here , we are all Black. As for tribe jibe, I may be Yoruba but that does not becloud my judgement.

        The issue in the United States you are referring to had to do with an Executive Order which is like a decree dealing with an internal problem of immigration. It is not about an issue like Kanu’s agitation for a country to be carved out of an existing country.

        If you are familiar with Snowdem’s case, I can bet you that if he ever returns to the United States, he will be held behind bars until his case his duly adjudicated.

    • Chym

      This was how Mandela and other freedom fighters (ANC) were insulted and spit on their faces but till today Mandela is recognized in the whole world. There’s nothing wrong for someone asking for his own freedom. Igbo don’t want to be in this country with you guys again, I don’t see y Yorubas hate to be told the truth.

      • Otile

        My brother, don’t be deceived by some Yoruba hypocrites. Every illustrious Yoruba son and daughter wants Oduduwa Republic, the only problem is that they are afraid of the Fulanis. They cannot stand a spooky looking horde of invading Fulanis. However, when the Fulanis are weakened Oduduland will be free.

      • Ola

        Chym, you are comparing apples and oranges here. For the record Mandela did not fight to carve out a Black Republic out of South Africa but for an end to Apartheid System of Government. So the issue of insults have no bearing here.

        You are wrong that Yoruba’s hate Igbos, the largest concentrated of Igbos living outside the South East is
        in Yoruba land most especially in Lagos, where they are prosperous and even have seats in the State House of Assembly and House of Representatives.

        If you go into world history, there is no country that voluntarily surrenders part of it’s territory to insurgency in the name of Oh we want our freedom, so give us our own country.These are facts you should know and will help you be a better advocate of your position.

        • Chym

          Let me school you a little about Mandela history of struggle for the freedom of his people. Nelson Mandela set up the African National Congress’ armed wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation), in 1961 when he lost hope that passive and non-violent resistance to the apartheid government would bear fruit.

          It was launched on December 16, the same day as the Afrikaners defeated the Zulus at the Battle of the Blood River 100 years earlier, not long after the massacre in Sharpeville of 69 unarmed protesters by the security police.

          With no military training himself, and in hiding from the government, Mr Mandela travelled abroad where he was offered financial and practical help by countries including Ethiopia and Algeria.

          Mr Mandela was adamant that MK, as the armed unit was called, would not kill people but its tactics would be aimed at sabotage. In his own words, the aim was to “hit back by all means within our power in defence of our people, our future and our freedom”.

          On his return to South Africa, Mr Mandela and his colleagues set up regional command units and set about training their army in bomb making and clandestine operations.

          MK carried out numerous bombings during the next 20 years and the pledge not to kill became redundant – in the whole campaign, at least 63 people died and 483 people were injured.

          It was subsequently classified as a terrorist organisation by the South African government and the United States, and banned.

          The armed struggle would also have a very personal consequence for Mr Mandela: he was arrested for sabotage a year after MK’s formation, and would spend the next 27 years in prison.

          Operations continued in his absence and among MK commanders was Jacob Zuma, now the South African president, but were suspended in August 1990 in preparation for the dismantling of apartheid and the birth of the Rainbow Nation.

        • Chym

          Yorubas hate Igbo too much more than the Hausa Fulani but they couldn’t do anything about it cos they have no alternative. Awolowo( may he roast in hell) started it when Zik’s party won the majority seat in the western region and connived with evil Gowon after he was released from prison by Dim Ojukwu (God bless your soul) to fight his southern brothers cos he hated them and saw them as a threat to his political survival. Now Lagos State former and present govt have demolishing Igbo properties in the name of urban renewal movement, last election the Oba of Lagos threatened to send Ndigbo to lagoons if they fail to vote APC, so do you think if he (Obaa) and the yoruba have the capacity they wouldn’t have drove Ndigbo out of south waste?

          Lastly, do you think those Igbo representing some part of Lagos State in the state house and at the National Assembly were voted by Yoruba? The answer is NO! They were voted cos the Igbo are the majority in those areas and secondly Ndigbo voted in 2015 like the Yorubas have always done, they voted for their people.

  • So oju abe niko

    A good call by those Igbo elites. The greatest recruiter for IPOB at the moment is Buhari, with the unnecessary detention of the lout called Kanu. Let the case go to trial, and let the chip falls wherever it may.

    There is nothing sacrosanct or organic about Nigeria – anyone should be able to call for separation, as long as it is being done peacefully. Unfortunately, Kanu is not serious about his Biafra, otherwise he would not begin by alienating all. Separation is a serious business, which requires some cooperation from many constituents of the old Union, the same people the clown called Kanu and his followers have been alienating.

    • Otile

      What brought about the call for separation is it not alienation and discrimination of the group you don’t want to leave? When you single out 5% of the population for denial of positions and other discriminatory practices what do you want them to do? May the same injustice come to you all.

      • Chym

        Amen! Isee!! Isee!!! Brother.

    • Dazmillion

      How Buhari managed to turn a lout into a hero is beyond comprehension. Nobody, even among die-hard Biafrians, took Nnamdi seriously till Buhari in his myopic thinking turned him into the rallying point of the separatist movement. Osinbajo will do well to correct this nonsense

  • Oluola

    Premium Times, you lied. Biafra is not Igbo country. Biafra is SE and SS minus Edo State

    • So oju abe niko

      You meant SS & SS minus Edo and Delta states (Edo and Delta states used to be the Mid-West).

      • OPEN TRUTH COVERED

        Before the creation of Mid west they were all in Eastern Nigeria

        • So oju abe niko

          100% wrong. Mid-West was part of Western Nigeria. Mid-West region (Edo and Delta) was carved out of the Western Nigeria in 1963. It became Mid-Western State in 1967 when Gowon created 12 states from the old 4 regions. It was renamed Bendel State in 1976 when Muritala carved out 7 additional states to from the 12 states to become 19 states.

          Your Eastern region on the other hand was first carved into 3 in the 1967 creation of States – East Central State (Igbo heartland), Rivers State and South Eastern States. In 1976 Muritala split East Central into 2 to become Anambra and Imo State, and South Eastern State was renamed Cross-River State, unchanged in size. In September 1987, Babangida

      U are deceiving yourself to b day dreaming that Edo and delta are biafran. It must b that u have not visited those places otherwise u wud av known we don’t speak IBO.I don’t bliv the calabas n d ikweries ll join ur land lock nation self not to talk of Edo ppl

  • Jimi

    This is not about Biafra. It is about punishing Buhari for defeating GEJ. Otherwise where were they when their half brother GEJ was there? Buhari should keep him there but hasten the trial and send him to life imprisonment.

      Buhari is serving his own term with bodily hard labor in Landan. I know you are going to lie and tell me he is hale and hearty but karma is alive.

        At least, Buhari is not serving his term in a jail with handcuff like the frustrated Kanu who seem to be missing his hideout in London.

        • Otile

          Imam is not enjoying his devilish pains either.

    • Chym

      Is it easy as you just said it? Let Buhari try it now. I think the last court Mazi Nnamdi Kanu went to he angrily told the court and audiences that Buhari can not jail him and the next month Buhari fell sick and was snuggled out of the country and he’s now in a vegetable condition and waiting the oxygen to be removed. Some things are misery bro. Look at what’s happening in the country since that young man has been in detention. Mr Jimi, the day you will fight for your right that will be the day you shall die.

      • Jimi

        The last time the Ibos tried to create Biafra they invaded then Midwestern state and parts of present Niger Delta. Are these ethnic groups Ibos too? You recognize your right by violating another’s own. Hypocrisy! Even if you are insinuating something bad will happen to Buhari, Osibanjo is not a supporter of Biafra. Stop wasting your time and learn not to vote for losers next time.

        • Chym

          Who need a coward to support Biafra? But remember that Sudan also said no body could divide the country but do you know a country call South Sudan? Hahahaha….. Stupidity is a disease

    • Darlington

      Was Soludo among the people that supported GEJ? imbecile.

  • Hassan Karofi Aliyu

    I like your collectivism as a people. When this government killed over 1000 shi’ites in cold blood, in day light, some senseless Muslims supported it because ‘it was Buhari’s government’- their god- that has the right to kill anyone. None of the so called northern leaders even saw anything wrong with that massacre, talk less of condemning it . And even when a competent court of law ruled as unlawful, El-ZakZaky’s detention and massacre of his six male children, the deaf leaders kept mum. But men have their ways, God Has his- of dealing with tyrants- as we see all over the world, and in history. No leader, no matter his ‘fake’ support and brutality lasts when killing his people becomes a hobby. May the leaders of SE be blessed for calling a spade a spade.

          You are speaking for yourself, I do not despise the North. What I hate is corrupt practices whether from the North or South. Ordinary Nigerians love themselves but politicians are the people driving the wedge between them for their(politician’s) economic gains. May God bless Hassan for saying the truth. I know you don’t like him because you yourself are not a member of his faith. If I may guess I would say you are either Sunni or irreligious. I also know you despise me because I am a Christian man.

      Always deluding yourselves and double-faced on national issues. So it is right for Afenifere and OPC to call for the stoppage of arrest and release of Gani Adams for agitating for Odua Republic and killing countless of Policemen in the SW in the process and wrong to call for the release of Nnamdi who didn’t raise raise a finger against Nigeria? Niger Delta violent agitators and Boko haram fighters are being released daily and you are ok with it. Hatred will clearly obliterate people like you some day.

      • Daniel Okogie

        It’s u who seem to b displaying such here.crime is crime.that crime was not treated in d past does not mean crime should not b treated in the present and in d future. How can u say someone who was promoting ethnic hatred with intentions to cause war that ll break the country, should just b released like that?

        • isioku

          If Boko and ND agitators are not in detention or facing charges in court, what moral right do you have to insist that a man who merely advocates for self-determination of the group of people be slammed in detention and for a long time against court orders? And talking about treason, what do you make of coup plotters who are today ruling the country in agbada? When fairness and equality take flight in the affairs of a nation, it’s moral fabric to insist upon due process is lost. The call is in order whatever ideological divide they belong.

          • Daniel Okogie

            If boko haram suspect are not in court as we speak we at least know many of them are in military detentions not even thinking of d courts, at least,only today one escapee boko haram suspect in Sss custody has been rearrested. If u go to archives,u ll also understand some militants were arrested in different part of d delta and we have not been told yet that they have been released. u kno, my major take on u is this ur blif that ppl should continually b allowed to go unpunished for criminal behaviour just bcos some others were not made to answer in d past,then at what point do we start discouraging criminality in d country, it baffles me.if u heard and read report of d ipob man’s radio and his activities, I don’t think u ll b able to classify such acts as mere agitations

          • Nonso Biafra Ibeanaoke Emmanue

            May be you are the worst liar i have ever met in a life time, take it or leave it there is no smoke without fire, this agitation didn’t start as a result of greed but as a result of inhumanity, suffering and hatred leveled against the eastern part of this country, why is it that you people are having this headache that we want to be on our own, if there was equality and peace we wouldn’t have demanded for this exit cos among all creation we associate the most with people and their culture. So please you can go and die for all i care. BIAFRA MUST COME

          • Daniel Okogie

            I believe u ll b seeing this issues differently now, bcos it’s been a long time ago we had this discussion. Area youths have finally set d stage, but we are still waiting for the Igbo to start moving in droves to Biafra n they are asking the UN to come n conduct the referendum. IPOB is still yet to mobilise buses to wherever Igbo are to take them home to Biafra.may b I’m still being the biggest liar u have ever met.if arewa had not given this quit notice that ll b ending in October n we at yet to c any movement from biafrans but their surprise call for d arrest of arewa youth for treason,I wud have been asking u to tell me what d igbos suffer in this country that others don’t suffer it.u need wake up so u can c that we only have two tribes or religion in this country which are d tribe of corruption who d rulers and d tribe of sufferers who are d masses.was it not d same way that govs in d north stole d Paris loan refund to their states that those in SE stole yours,are u not aware that KANU ur ipob man’s father went to born him in d UK n today he is a British citizen and that his wife children and siblings are all in d UK as we speak?shine ur eye brother. Every person in this country ll benefit more just as d Igbo are doing currently in their businesses living in every part of this country without visas than in a break up.

Let’s beware of politicians like these who play on our emotions, bcos they are searching for public money to steal.they are calling for his release even when they are aware a case of treason is on his head.

  • Gidi

    I sense election season is on the horizon…there is nothing surprising here, everyone is burnishing their image among their people.

    Lets face it, no single politician will get elected in the East without telling the people where they stand on Kanu’s prosecution. The statement credited to Soludo and Utomi is nothing more than pandering to the base. This is normal to win primary and state election.

    Buhari is wrong to detain him indefinitely and disobey court order.

    The harm been done to Nigeria through buharis open recourse to tribalism, ethnic,religious and clannish bias, in the discharge of his duties and that of his government is debt which its pay back shall bring this nation to the verge of destruction.
    Fulani presidency of Nigeria is not going to be forever, after Buhari, other sections of Nigeria shall also bear rule. If other presidents from other sections of Nigeria puts Fulani at the receiving end the very way Buhari have been doing to others, I hope that hell will not be let loose on Nigerian nation.

    How’s a treasonable offense freedom of speech? why is this thief Soludo not locked up too?

    • Darlington

      Treasonable offence for agitating for Biafra? You’re delusional! You people are now jittery that Igbo elites are now identifying with Nnamdi Kanu’s struggle. No more divide and rule. Ohaneze Ndigbo will visit Nnamdi Kanu next.

      • FreeNigeria

        Igbo Elite? I thought every Igbo is an elite in Nigeria based on their get rich quick at all cost attitude. Let say you get you Biafra today, will the entire Igbo people leave Nigeria?

        • Otile

          Senseless question.

  • isioku

    A commendable move by Igbo professionals. Unity is strength. Even though i do not share his ideology, Nnamdi ought to be treated better than Gani Adams who agitated for Odua Republic and killed several policemen in the process in Lagos but sheltered by SW Governors and leaders at the time; Boko Haram fighters who are daily released without charges and Niger Delta violent agitators who are released and paid for blowing up pipelines and kidnapping expatriates. Equality is equity. What is good for the goose is equally good for the gander. A call has been made. They should actively work to make it happen.

      Equality is just a concept, it does not exist in reality. Who wants to be equal anyway?

    Thank God Igbos are finally coming together to defend one of their own. No more divide and rule. Igwebuike. A new united and progressive Igbo nation is in the offing.

    • Ibe N

      Yes, indeed. Only question now is, what took them so long? This is the role the so-called Ohaneze Ndigbo should be playing, but they only wait in the background looking out for bribe money. I truly commend Soludo and his team.

        It is better to be late than never. I stand with Nnamdi Kanu.

    The strategy is working, the longer we datain this clown called Kanu the more we know his supporters and simpatizers, they will come out one at a time. Solodu, Itomi and others are the backers of Biafraud, very unfortunate!

    • Lawrence Iwebor

      Are you really educated? Tell me, why is Kanu being detained? For fighting for his right? Is Nigeria as a system working? Stop deceiving yourself

    • Kudo

      Is Nigeria working?

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      You are a big nincompoop, Nigeria is shooting herself in the foot everyday Kanu stays in detention. Unity cannot be by force, it is a function of the human free-will. The Igbo political class will soon join in the agitation and that is when you will realise how Buhari has mismanaged the peace.

      Other governments managed the agitation fairly all right and Buhari came thinking that he can shoot an ideology which has set in to death , he has dealt a great blow to the little unity which existed.

    • Otile

      Who are the backers of Boko Haram, who are the backers of Oduduwafraud? Name them all.

        Hurray the creek monkey had come out spitting banana rubbish. Where have you been monkey? Trying to free Kanu from prison? It won’t work they are very power.

      You are a big fool.what is their for us to be called one country. Every thing about the whole system is one sided so mallam you can see the reasons we want to leave and have a place we called our own country.

  • thusspokez

    Charge the so-called Igbo Professionals with (secondary) treason too:

    The question many are asking these so-called Igbo Professionals (IPs) — whatever that means — is why are they making this demand under this Acting President (AP) and not whilst President Buhari was in town?

    The AP is a liberal; and some take this to mean being soft on crime. Hence they are trying to appeal coerce him to capitulate to their silly demand which in itself is treacherous.

    Indeed, one could argue that any demand for the “unconditional release” of someone who is facing high treason is itself treason. Granted, the SSS should interview them, followed by public apologies by them or face charges of treason.

    If the IPs want to use intimidation tactics against the AP, then he should reciprocate and hit back at them. Question their patriotism. Ask them why they want someone who had vowed to destroy their country, namely, Nigeria, should be unconditionally released?

    Kanu’s crime is far greater than (say) rape charge. So, would these IPs call for the unconditional release of someone facing a rape charge? If not, then why someone facing high treason?

    • Otile

      You are an_idiot, do you want your god Mohamed Buhari to invade Igboland to loot their belongings. Don’t you know what Nigerian wars are all about. Traitor

        And what are those belongings?

    • Ewens Lawson

      You did not finish up well. Look!……Kanu is a criminal far worse than Boko Haram. He challenged the Nigerian State, promoting a criminal assemblage of idiots to advance selfish interest. Who are the members of IPOB? Why are we using social media to spread falsehood and brandishing fallacies of irrational proportion? Who is Nnamdi Kanu? Abeg, you must know that if we fail to deal with this rat, other persons with his kind of mentality will continue to surface from london or elsewhere to ferment trouble whenever their pockets dry up
      . The government of PMB is not elected to negotiate with narcissistic elements.

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        Comments like yours does recruit more supporters for Biafra so keep it up.

          As usual, Tawando

        • Kallah Bature

          More serious minded Igbo leaders and followers are averse to the tactics of traitors like Kanu.I therefore can not see where the recruitment will come from. I PRAY may be an irrelevant collection of relevant seeking renegades.

          • Kallah Bature

            I mean IPs.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            When the chips are down, those who will matter are those you see on the streets protesting peacefully and getting killed by Buhari, they are the ones who may resist through other means. Those Abuja leaders are losing grip and they know it, either they join the population or they will be pushed into irrelevance soon and many of them are realising it.

  • un spkn

    The problem here is really difficult. If Nnamdi Kanu was a Nigerian this might have been a simple matter of re-integration into society. However, Nnamdi Kanu holds a British Passport and as such a British citizen at the time of his arrest. Thus classifying him as an international terrorist promoting terrorist activities on foreign grounds. This is the problem. He came from London to come and look for trouble. We are not sure maybe he is a tool created and planted by the british pirates to pursue their selfish pirate agendas. Or maybe legitimately fighting for his people. But we would never know. Considering that we also are sure that there are external forces bent on turning Nigeria into Libya, Yemen and Iran. Putting all these information together, we cant leave any stone unturned. Therefore concluding that whatever Nnamdi Kanu’s intentions are he should remain where he is for now, with Zarzaky and any other body or individual that decides to make themselves a public Nuisance when Nigerians are trying to figureout what to do with their country.

  • Daniel Okogie

    A very good question for all of us here as Nigerians judging by most depositions, is, are we truly christians and Muslims that we claim to be?. Most of us who claim these faiths continually defile both Christ and Muhammad with what we do and preach.we act indiscipline and preach hate. Christ said give ceaser’s to ceaser and God’s to God while u love your neighbour as yourself. And i know islam is said to proclaim same tenents as i have heard those who practice Islam say it’s a religion of peace and sadaca which can b explained as love as well, But what do we c here,kill buhari for arresting an IBO man not minding whether d ibo has committed crime or not just bcos of d hate for abokis, and to hell u nyamiris fraudsters, drug pushers. These hates and indiscipline becloud our minds that we reduce national issues of crime to tribal chauvinism of hate.where are our faiths that admonishe us to love a Nigerian like we would of ourselves? Let’s practice love and discipline amongst us and in d way we address issues

  • Haba mallam

    My message to you all backers of this clown called kanu. We want peace in Nigeria so we are ready for War. Bring it on suckers.

    • paul irumundomon

      What war! to ask the president to release anyone is now a war. Good, almost every state today, have military barracks. Unlike in the time of military, that we only have barracks in one section of Nigeria. If there is ever going to be war, every sector is well prepared to fight and defend themselves.
      The civil war was a one sided war, it won’t be so in the secord civil war I promise you, then the sucker might not be a better word to qualify it.

  • Jacobus James

    Buhari is what in Igbo can only be described as an “Efu-lefu”..one who is wandering aimlessly (to put it mildly). Sit him down and ask why he is holding this little guy out of whom he has now created a giant, against all reason and against lawful court orders. He has no answers. The carry-over animosity against the Igbos, for what ever reason Buhari alone knows (he was way too junior during the Biafra War) is evident in what he is doing with Kanu and IPOB; so Kanu called him names, so what? Pettiness in a Head of State? Tufia-kwa! The pettiness is even there for all to see in the case of Col Dasuki. Nigeria needs grown ups to run her affairs. Obviously Buhari isn’t the man Nigerians thought he was when they voted for him 2015.
