Why we’re demanding Nnamdi Kanu’s immediate release – Soludo, Utomi, others

Nnamdi Kanu

Former Central Bank governor, Charles Soludo, and some key leaders of the south-east region on Tuesday said their demand for the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, was based on the yearning for “national cohesion”.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, Mr. Soludo and other members of the group, Uzuku Umunna, said the Buhari-led administration of the All Progressive Congress should join hands with other Nigerians to bring about a new Nigeria, agreed to by its constituent parts and citizens.

Mr. Kanu was arrested in October 2015 and has been held since then despite court orders, on allegation of treason. His group demands the creation of a separatist Biafra state.

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

The group said Nigeria cannot succeed by “suppressing legitimate agitations or democratic expressions”.

“It is our considered view that much of the increasingly desperate agitations are in response to the failures of the dysfunctional/looting elite and poor governance in the context of a failing state that offers increasingly vanishing opportunities and hope for its youth and future generations,” the group said in a prepared statement read by Mr. Soludo.

“We do not condone violence, criminality or brigandage of any sort, and nor should any state do so. However, by failing or refusing to address the fundamental issues and instead concentrating on the symptoms, Nigeria runs the grave risk of turning the entire country into a large prison yard or a police state.”

It continued: “There seems to be a national consensus that the current system cannot endure. The APC, PDP, APGA and other political parties, as well as all non-partisan actors and statesmen must come together to save Nigeria. We are in a state of emergency at all levels. We demand for the urgent release of Nnamdi Kanu, his colleagues and all prisoners of conscience, as part of the process of the search for national cohesion and building a new Nigeria.”

He added that Nigeria has had a very poor ranking among the global list of unsustainable states, due to reasons associated with its current structure.

“Since 2005, Nigeria has drifted from a rank of 54th position in the global Failed/Fragile State Index to 17th position in 2014 and now to a dangerous 13th position in 2016 (under the ‘Red Alert’ category of countries),” Mr. soludo said.

He urged the Federal Government to “live up to its promises and rebuild the country to overcome its years of unwarranted differences and challenges”.

“If the only thing the current administration succeeds in doing is to re-engineer a new Nigeria, agreed to by its constituent parts and citizens, it would have birthed a new country for the 21st century!”

Mr. Soludo said although the pattern of agitation adopted by Mr. Kanu may not be acceptable to some Nigerians, the factors necessitating the agitation are issues that remain real in the current structure of the country.

“There is a legitimate debate among Nigerians on the Biafra question, and there are indeed many Igbos who, like many other Nigerians, do not agree with Nnamdi Kanu’s objective or means. It needs to be stated, however, that no citizen of Nigeria deserves the kind of treatment meted to him and his colleagues. Government has declined to obey the orders of properly constituted courts in Nigeria for his release.

“Nnamdi Kanu is not above the law; but nor should he be put beneath it. A situation where the state refuses to obey clear and legitimate court orders for his release and holds him until it gets a favourable order; moves the goalposts endlessly through endless amendment of the charges against him; and now seeks to try him in secret clearly constitutes circumstances that would fall well short of the constitutional guarantees of due process.

“We demand that the right to freedom of association, assembly, peaceful protest, and expression must be accessible to all citizens of Nigeria as guaranteed by Nigeria’s constitution. Trying to criminalize anyone who talks about self-determination or attempts to use brute force to main and kill innocent protesters in a democracy is a strategy for a time that we no longer live in.”

  • Watch man

    I hear! Since when did “national cohesion” become bargain chip for political relevance? Where have you been since the young man was put in detention? This is politics of relevance.

    • Jon

      Buhari has natural hatred for the Igbos. And, that’s a fact. He is also pursuing a personal vendetta on Dasuki for arresting him under IBB coup. And, that’s fact.

      • YK

        Lol. And igbos have natural love for Buhari ko? He hates Igbos but had used two of their illustrious sons as running mates? Reset your mind bro, hatred kills more than cancer.

        • sab

          Because of federal character, he would pick a running mate from Katsina but because the constitution did not approve of that.

          • YK

            But he didn’t do.

      • kinsly

        Ok, so you sabi everything?

      • persona

        After hating Igbo, he hates his brother Dasuki too I suppose?
        He loves GEJ and Patience so they are walking free. He dislikes Yorubas so he is in political fight against Tinubu?
        When you don confuse finish, try hit the reset button.

        • YK

          His brain needs formatting. lol.

    • Screw-em

      EFCC should dust off these clowns files and watch them scamper for cover into their slimy cesspool. Soludo and Utomi are nothing but spent useless ammunition that will have no iota effect on well armored Buhari. These non entities and cowards dear not provoke Buhari or they will forever regret it.

    • Cilva

      Most comments here shows hate to the people of the SE, in democracy the rule of law should be supreme, no doubt Nigeria is a failed state, should any part decides to be independent naturally shouldn’t be an issue, my question really is why is FG refusing to allow them, today is SE tomorrow it can be any other region until we push for true federalism, resources control, rule of law, absolute security for lives n properties of nigerians in any part of the country, freedom of speech this country Nigeria can never work

  • Olaola

    If the Nigerian govt should listen to these fools and release this terrorist Kanu, they might as well release all other criminals and terrorists being held in all prisons across the country. This is a clear case of promoting lawlessness, period, end of story.

    • YK

      That is the issue and unfortunately when he is released unconditionally as being demanded by these government contractors the same people hailing them now will say why did government bowed as we saw in the case of boko haram where Nigerian state under Yar’adua watched recklessly until it snowballed.

  • Opekete

    Political expression unaccompanied by violence should not under whatever circumstance be criminalized by the government. It even become more appalling when the government disobey the order of the court. When the government disobey the order of a court, it is a call to anarchy. We do not vote for the government that will expect us to sing its praise. It is the duty of the citizen to keep the government on its toes and to make the leadership accountable to the taxpayers who foot the bill of their office. So I join my voice to that of Soludo and others for the release of those in Nigeria prison on the account of political dissension. I am Yoruba but ethnicity should not be a barrier to speaking the truth. I support the government of Buhari but I reserve the right to disagree whenever he fails to leave up to my aspiration and that of millions other Nigerians.It is time for the national assembly to look deeply into a national conference midwifed by them or the executive to find the way forward towards finding a lasting solution to the national question.

    We demand for the urgent release of Nnamdi Kanu, his colleagues and all prisoners of conscience, as part of the process of the search for national cohesion and building a new Nigeria.”

    These Igbo professionals are conflating two separate issue, namely, (1) the harsh economic situation and hardship which many a Nigerian across the country face and (2), the treason that Kanu faces.

    I am inclined to believe that this mixing of the two separate and indeed unrelated issues is a a deliberate attempt to appeal to the emotional sensibilities of Nigerians so as to dull their thinking, confuse, deceive and manipulate them.

    The narratives given here cites the major problems and pains which ordinary Nigerians are facing and then Kanu is introduced or portrayed as some kind of Jesus Christ taking on the establishment on behalf of the ordinary people. A figurative knight in shining armour. This was the same Kanu who, just a few years ago, was travelling across the world, preaching hate to his followers; collecting donations from them with which to buy arms and equipment to use to destroy Nigeria.

    • sab

      If Kanu was arrested, detained and being tried for preaching hate, what about the Boko Haram insurgents who are fighting for the islamisation of Nigeria, killing and destroying people and property yet those of the earlier arrested were released, the soldiers amongst them reintegrated into the army. Tell me which one is more dangerous between hate preacher and Boko Haram fighter?

      • kinsly

        Boko Haram of course ,that’s why they are been killed without trial. But Kanu is getting a fair trial according to the law.

        • Daniel Okogie

          Very apt reply

      • persona

        Do you then see someone claiming they should be released because they have a legitimate aspiration as Soludo is pandering for Kanu?
        Clearly, the patterns are similar and so should be the punishments.

        • YK

          lol

        • Julius

          Bgammmmmmmmm!!. Lets wait for his answer !!!

      • Daniel Okogie

        U shud stop spreading false information which can easily cause genocidal hatred o. I hope u have not forgotten chocolate city chief if I get it right,who tot he cud simply get away with such on SK killings. Be careful fellow Nigerian.don’t deliberately make us hate each other

      • Julius

        Lying is never a solution to anything. Many of those BK were killed and the remaining are limited to living in the forest. Do you also wanna apply that to the scam agitators ?. The ones they absolved into the army were those that were forced into joining BK. Tell the whole story if you wanna to make a point.

    • Hard Talk

      If you are not very stuuupid then you should have known that releasing confirmed Islamist terrorists and suspects while leaving a pro-democracy and self determination proponent makes no sense anywhere, not even in a Banana republic. Your comments however disjointed and senseless sadly represents the sorry state of affairs in Nigeria today – a situation wherein people have become overly blighted by that tenacious affinity to the resources of the Niger Delta much that they would trade anything to continue to have access to the resources. Isn’t this the same reason a dead, impotent, vegetative, clueless and brainless dumb was supported to take over a bubbling economy from a vibrant Dr Jonathan? …and of course the criminal Western nations whose agenda is widely known supported the warped idea…and now they have left Buhari alone…all they (Western) nations now do is donate millions for one poverty project here and there to pretend that they care…and it is exactly how they keep Africa in perpetual poverty and underdevelopment. How would a man like Buhari be the president of a country like Nigeria? This is an absurd absurdity.

      • thusspokez

        “If you are not very stuuupid” is not an argument, stµpid!

  • thusspokez

    He added that Nigeria has had a very poor ranking among the global list of unsustainable states, due to reasons associated with its current structure.

    What has this narrative got to do with your earlier call for the unconditional release of Kanu?

    Further, these analysis are not Kanu’s reason for wanting to destroy Nigeria, or is it? These Igbo professionals should stop insulting the intelligence of Nigerians by changing the narrative and conflating separate and unrelated issues.

    • YK

      He even contradicted himself. He said he was pursuing a legitimate agitation and later said the methods he adopted might not be acceptable. With all these contradictions, still Prof. Soludo and his co travellers still want Nnamdi Kanu be released. These guys are pursuing dangerous dimensions. I know the approval of $20b Niger Delta gas trade zones and probably coming Anambra elections are birthing these new hates. Let us wait and see who blinks first.

      • Daniel

        Method does not take away legitimacy of the course.

        And how has the Nigeria you love made you a better person?

        You should in fact go beyond complaining on the internet and hit the streets with protest against poor governance that has rendered you poor.

        • Daniel Okogie

          How many have u yourself led, and who tells u internet commenting is not a way of leading public protest and opinion?

          • YK

            The only language they understand is hitting the streets as he called it, looting innocent people’s shops, disrupting their business activities. That is his own belief of protests. His ignorance could be tolerated. He even referred to me as being poor as if my life from more than thousand kilometres from the sore of the country depend on his looting mentors. Ignorant rat.

    • sab

      You alleged Kanu ‘wanting to destroy Nigeria’ meaning he has not destroyed Nigeria already. But the herdsmen have already and continued to destroy the country yet no one has either condemned their actions or arrested or killed any of them.

      • Daniel

        Who is proudly Nigerian in the first place? Only the masochistic poor and corrupted rich.

        Nigeria truly benefits no one.

    • Daniel

      It means those who want out of Nigeria want a better life. Are you not tired of empty promises and poverty?

      Cross over the border and see how government works for its citizens.

      • Gibson Bosah

        Did he say let biafra come or nigeria divide.Name one igbo politician/elite that support breaking up with good source or link.soludo n co cannot be different

        • YK

          So he has not called for it but saw it as legitimate agitation? This is not even the issue it is their rights to call for it but the concern is where have they been and when last did they realise the current structure is unsustainable?

          • Gibson Bosah

            The group was created recently.politicians always has target

          • YK

            you are right and they don’t always miss the target especially bearing in mind they are dealing mostly with gullible ones who constitute chunk of the voters here because of low level of education. They have been dancing naked now that professionals are joining their agitations even when the so called professionals have their own target.

        • Daniel

          How can the elite call for break up when they earn billions of Naira every month?

          In the history of nations ,it is the poor that rise against a system because they are the victims.

          So that is why Nnamdi KANU has such a huge following among the youth who are victims of bad governance.

          You should understand this struggle is not supposed to be a Biafran affair alone.

          Islands of success does not make a great nation.

          Who truly benefits from Nigeria? YOU?

          • YK

            Your sagacity at issues is second to none. I hate it when Igbos especially youths paint it as if others are eating with honey. Let us all agree to confront these evils in the land once and for all then we can renegotiate our marriage after then. This my thief is better than your thief we are doing will not land us anywhere.

          • Daniel

            That is the matter.

      • Daniel Okogie

        Have u sat down to reason that at least since 1999,all the govs of d SE have all been IBO yet the ibos still lack dev with all their African Japan blifs remaining a mirage?most of the senate President have been ibos since 1999,what laws did they make to either give d ibos Biafra or make d country a country of equals? Soludo for example was a major executive member of d PDP, he didn’t realise d ibos needed Biafra then neither did he know that d country needed to be restructured for a better nation,even when d wole Soyinka’s group were clamouring for a sovereign national conference at d time he was in fed gov? All the ibos didn’t realised it was an opportunity for them d ibos to get their Biafra and resource control when their brother GEJ was d president only for it to come to their consciousness when a Fulani and an opposition party bcam d President. They now want buhari to give them what they didn’t demand at d time they had d chance,when their IBO man was d President.u shud stop deceiving yourself to think all this group of public money looters are doing now is for ur interest, except u are one of d beneficiaries of stealing is not corruption. This is just d group finding a way of getting one of their own out of jail by making his charges seem ordinary. It’s not breaking away that ll develope the SE,bt by ordinary SE persons detecting the criminals governing them in d east and getting rid of them from govt corridors and powers

        • YK

          You know sometimes I pity my Igbo brothers. Their minds have been poisoned against their own benefits by the elders who were telling the the agonies of civil war during which even some of their parents were not born. Let me tell you, these jesters are not after Kanu release but are playing their politics their own way to hoodwink their people as usual. Why didn’t you see Obiano et al here? They know the dangerous game Soludo and his boys are about playing. Is it not interesting that a senate president of Igbo extraction, Ike Ekweremadu has presided over two failed constitution amendments without a single mentioning of restructuring but cunningly he is now the champions of restructuring. When the likes of Soludo was dishing out big big data about how Nigeria was approaching Eldorado he didn’t see any reason for restructuring but now the veil is falling off. Have you not noticed that each time Igbos loose out in national politics this has always been the trend to resort to blackmail.

        • Daniel

          And I ask : what has political office sharing benefited any ethnic group in Nigeria?

          Even the North that loves Nigeria so much is the most backward in the country.

          The country does not work, so breaking it up makes perfect sense. Nigeria will not be the first to disintegrate.

          • Daniel Okogie

            Breaking up not necessarily the solution.there part of our laws that tear us apart while we pretend they ll give us fairness n justice. How can are call fellow Nigerians non indigin in Nigeria or say appointment must b done on d basis of d languages n religion when d same Nigerians ll migrate to d west n they ll elected n appointed into offices.we shud b asking for d scrapping of s federal character commission law and replacing it with merit transparent procedure in which can easily know they ll get certain due or not based on d qualification they have n if they don’t get it,they must b explained to why they didn’t. We should also scrap state and local govt of origin n replace them with place of residence,we must agitate for d scrapping of all forms of quota systems in our laws and replace them with merit.have u observed recently that igbos are rejecting the appointment of another Igbo by Christ as Bishop of ahiara diocese of d Catholic Church?

        • Julius

          Nope, they don’t live in reality and don’t believe in accountability and responsibilities. Blaming other people covers their own failures. Pointing that out makes you an Igbo hater as you well know. Traits of delusional minds..Na so na !!

          • Daniel

            Stop being masochistic! Nigeria has cornered your future. Buhari or whatever has no answer.

            Whatever agitation today reflects a systemic problem.

            And however people express their disgust, you are supposed to applaud it.

            Where lies your beautiful future in Nigeria? WHERE?

            Wake up!

          • Julius

            “And however people express their disgust, you are supposed to applaud it.”.. I do when its base on facts and not on slander, make up facts and abuse disguise as criticism . My beautiful future in Nigeria lies with me and the positive people making their bits of positive contributions to the country. There you have it !

    • persona

      Glad you saw the drivel. How does a state prosper since 2005- 2014 and become a failed state? Is there any state prospering on this earth and failing? Economics dictate that lives of citizens get better when they prosper and they turn from crime and criminal activities.
      Kanu didn’t adduce economics as basis for calling Nigeria a zoo.
      If Soludo is saying not citizen deserves to be treated this way, is he saying Kanu is a citizen of the zoo?
      The position of Soludo is purely political grandstanding and it coincides with when he is running for office.

    • Tony

      I think what he is trying to say is that, there will not be any possible growth n the nation due to some part of the country feeling short changed…mending fences is always better than locking up your adversaries, thereby constituting anarchy, e.g book haram. Kanu has turned from nobody to national discuss, because of how badly the government handled this issue..

    It is always the time they are out of government they always see the unsustainability index of the country going higher. By the time they are inside cutting from the national cake they would be giving false figures as to how close we are to eldorado. Whenever common people like us mentioned restructuring they would never listen until time like this when their oxygen in form of government free money is disconnected they try to clinch on straw. Now a recalcitrant like Kanu is their next tool and are being deceived by another fulani of impending patronage. Bunch of clowns seeking for relevance. They talk as if only their region is the only suffering region. Nonsense.

    • Daniel

      Does it take away the fact that Nigeria is a failed state ?Never you hesitate to hail anyone wanting a better Nigeria, whether in or out of government.

      In fact, you should be worried about your future in this failed entity.

      • persona

        It doesn’t take it away but we were told we had economic prosperity in the post 2005-2014 era, so how do you become a failing/ failed state in prosperity? Is there any country that is prospering and failing in the world?
        The issue is simple, let Soludo and his crew align the facts, either we didn’t prosper and tended towards a failed state or we are prosperous and not failing.
        His timing while running for office doesn’t pan well for him, Kanu may just be a pun in Soludo’s hands.

        • Daniel

          And the question remains : is Nigeria not a failed state ? YES, it is.

          That answer must be acknowledged by all, therefore those who want out of Nigeria have a LEGITIMATE COURSE.

          If I may ask: is it all the countries that existed in the sixties that still exist today? No.

          Does breaking up mean there will be no progress? No

          The ‘One Nigeria’ sentiments makes no sense at all.

          There are small countries that are far better than Nigeria today. Their influence in the global stage is marvellous.

          So I wonder why we lump up in POVERTY.

      Don’t mind Soludo, he clearly docked the fact that after his era with OBJ, we grew worse under Yar’Dua/ GEJ but they said we had economic prosperity so how do you become a failing state when you are abounding in prosperity?
      The timing of Soludo with the mic while running for office alongside a former civil servant and a failed bank chairman says a lot.

      • YK

        God will fortify your understanding the more. I hate it when people hide behind ethnic bigotry to achieve a course. Anambra election is near and these government contractors are out again to deceive the gullible minds especially the youths to present themselves as saints to the jobless youths they have been using as tools. The alleged court orders have been granted before Soludo visited villa many times why was it not discussed? What were they thinking when they were eating from government and discerning minds like us were telling them this system is basically unsustainable and they looked other way? I am not against anyone getting his or her own country or have anything against such as it is never my business but I have everything against coercing all of us into submission each time you loose out in the game of power play. These charlatans now masquerading as saviours of their people have been parts of what brought us here as a nation. Pat Utomi who saw a situation whereby a man was moving from country to country facing camera soliciting for weapons of mass destruction to be inflicted on Nigeria, operation of fugitive radio stations, installation of foreign objects without recourse to safety of the people unto a teleco mast as a civil matter needs to be educated. The same Pat Utomi who now sees many evils of government single handedly ran down volkswagen Nigeria which employed thousands of people when he was the chairman the aftermath of which was the establishment of his business school. What are they taking Nigerians for? Are these people not aware many of us were not too young during their nefarious activities against the country? Some of those now worshipping them were either in the wombs of their mothers or still playing with pants around. A society that loses her history definitely loses her future with it.

    The crude mentality of trying to shoot an ideology to death is surely going to rebound on the country, the little fake unity has been eroded drastically by Buhari through his lopsided and trigger happy antics in the SE and SS. Nnamdi was made a hero by Buhari because Buhari lacks tact . EVEN IF NNAMDI DIES TODAY HE WILL REMAIN A HERO, IF HE REMAINS IN JAIL, HE WILL REMAIN A HERO OF THE BIAFRA STRUGGLE .

      I doubt that the issue is about Biafra, its legitimacy bordering on national security.
      As we are aware, Kanu breached known protocols to enter the country, it was mouthed off as part of the strategy by his supporters. The strategy backfired now and the laws of the land is in place. He will not just be released as these guys are demanding. He will admit his wrong, restrategize on how to make his political elites in NASS accountable to push for a referendum and the dream can be realized. Kanu, calls Nigeria a zoo, Soludo is saying no citizen deserves this treatment, is Kanu a citizen of the zoo then?
      So many of us advised him to go about it legally, several people too were caught during the MKO saga, they were not released. Dasuki also is in custody, I don’t see any northern group declaring their prince be released.
      I see this as a political relevance move by 2 known politicians and an ex civil servant to push for relevance. The skillful docking of the OBJ era by Soludo is seen by saying Nigeria grew worse after his own window.
      Nigeria has laws, the elites and government keep breaching it by using their so called privileges. The trial of Kanu by hiding witnesses is simply because of his approach of all or nothing to the extent of annexation of states like Kogi and the SS without their consent. Such a person who usurped private companies like MTN to co-locate his transmitters can likewise endanger the lives of fellow citizens, hence, need to protect their identity before they are killed for supporting the state.
      Kanu has had his privileges also by demanding judges after judges be changed, the trial will not happen as he desires when he too changes the goal posts. The one sided approach by the political elite just as Soludo is running for office may just be a ruse.

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        The immigration offence you cited above is punishable by a fine so that is not the issue RATHER THE RIGHT OF BIAFRAN AGITATORS TO SELF DETERMINATION IN A PEACEFUL MANNER. THE GROSS DISRESPECT AND CONTRAVENTION OF COURT ORDERS BY THE GOVERNMENT IS ALSO A CASE IN POINT .

        I doubt you know the meaning of the English word ANNEXATION because if you did you would not display the ignorance so publicly. Secret trials have no place in our constitution nor is there anything democratic about them, it is a shame that the crude northern regime has steadily threaded the path of lawlessness through indefinite incommunicado detentions without trial and other forms of brutality like mass extra-judicial killings, if we chose o reject the authoritarian draconism displayed by this blood-thirsty regime,it falls well within our rights, those who wish to condone it are free to do so.

        There are provisions in the law to prosecute MTN suppose what you alleged is true but all the fabricated lies are going to implode on the regime. Treason is an action and we are convinced that Kanu has not committed any treason rather we have a veteran coup plotter and one who has actually committed high treason in the person of Muhammadu BUHARI WHO THROUGH THE FORCE OF ARMS REMOVED A DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED REGIME AND IS WALKING FREE , IT IS QUITE A SAD IRONY THAT HE IS THE ONE BEHIND THE TRIBULATIONS OF K.ANU.

        There are two sets of laws in Nigeria, one for privileged northerners and the other for Igbos, we Ndigbo will make the northern feudalists realisse that Nigeria can only survive as an entity through unity derived from free-will and not enforced unity . REAL UNITY IS A FUNCTION OF THE HUMAN FREE-WILL, IT CANNOT BE ENFORCED THROUGH BRUTALITY AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES ANT LAWLESSNESS.

        • persona

          If unity cant be enforced, how is disintegration now a forceful agitation?
          Bros, clearly, you are using your own definition and accepting your own reality when it suits you.
          You are saying treason is an act, why was OBJ caged by Abacha? Was he seen carrying guns? If he coordinated and was sent to prison, how is Kanu not guilty when he solicited for arms during the Igbo forum in US?
          Annexation is when you try to appropriate what is not yours by coercion. I thought you always say the SE has fewer states, how come Kogi is considered part of SE now? Bros you obviously need to reset your thinking.
          You dey online dey shout or you follow wear Jew uniform for court today?
          Which identity are you projecting now, is it red cap chief title or a Jew with star of David? The reach out to Trump don fail, na Israel loading…..SMH

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            We are not seeking anything outside our democratic right to self determination through freedom of speech and freedom of expression. There is no arms struggle, IPOB and MASSOB peaceful agitators and are recognised as such by the international community.

            You did well to cite Abacha , another semi-illiterate northern military tyrant as your example and role model, well what happened to OBJ was wrong and those charges were trumped up, the only difference is that while Abacha was operating a klepocratic dictatorship , Buhari is operating a democratic regime supposedly and should know better but he clearly has the same Abacha mindset.

            I suppose you still have a problem with the English word ANNEXATION, i ENCOURAGE YOU TO WORK HARDER TO DECIPHER THE REAL ENGLISH MEANING….good luck.

          • Kunle Taylor

            misterman go and reset your brain…kogi and benue are nor a part of biafra…and any insinuation as to that is a form of coersive annexation and you know that….Kanu openly solicited for arms in a townhall meeting in chicago USA and some other places…he incited otherwise lawful citizens to “murder” their fellow citizens and crashed the hope for a biafra which I would welcome anyday…the truth is open and sacrosanct anytime and remains so till eternity…lying through your teeth wont change anything…its better the agitation comes from people who can reason beyond crass hatred and political vendattaism such as kanu n his likes…besides i have a question for you… what did mister nnamdi kanu do for a living before his sudden “biafra” awakening?

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            You do not understand the true meaning of annexation, I wish they will charge Kanu for annexation and you will see how quick the charge will be thrown out. It takes to parties to solicit for anything, it is left for the prosecution to provide hard evidence to that effect, not doctored youtube videos. The rest like incitement to murder the question is what happened when Buhari aasked ALMAJERI TO DEFEND THEIR VOTES AND A RIOT WHICH CLAIMED 800 LIVES INCLUDING YOUTH COPERS FOLLOWED, WAS BUHARI TRIED ?

  • Ohnigeria Godsavenigeria

    First let it be made clear that the right to demand for a better deal in life such as demanding for a new LGA, State or nations from the existing ones is a legitimate demand backed by constitution and international laws. That was how nations, states, LGAs and even emirate councils or autonomous communities existing today emerged.
    Nigerian nation would still have been an appendages of British government if not for such legitimate demands and agitations from our fore fathers like zik, Enahoro, awo etc. So kanu has a legitimate aspirations but I personally don’t like his modus operandi in going about his demands.
    Kanus resort to lying and falsehood peddling, use of vulgar, hate and uncouth language against ibos who didn’t buy into his legitimate aspirations, and other tribes and people whom kanu was abusing and disparaging, made me to really dislike kanu and his f00lish group.
    I am in support of the arrest and detention of kanu to essentially reform him to be a responsible freedom fighter that follows the rules of the game.
    What is making some of us to now begin to show some empathy for kanu is because ofthe way president buhari have carried on with state matters since his ascendancy to power.
    Buhari have indeed shown himself to be an old man that is devoid of wisdom, knowledge and experience, Buhari have been undermining the unity of Nigeria, sowing discord and destabilizing Nigerian nation more than even kanu.
    If Buhari have used his position and office to unite, build up and help Nigerians to forge unity like other leaders before him, the likes of kanu and his agitations would have paled into oblivion.
    Buhari is an evil plaque upon Nigeria and thank God that buharis wickedness have caught the attention of the God Almighty and like Pharaoh, Herod and nebuccardenezer, Buhari is receiving his just recompense in a sorrowful way.

    The ordinary ibo person need to sit down to reason that at least since 1999,all the govs of d SE have all been IBO yet the ibos still lack dev with all their African Japan blifs remaining a mirage?most of the senate President have been ibos since 1999,what laws did they make to either give d ibos Biafra or make d country a country of equals? Soludo for example was a major executive member of d PDP, he didn’t realise d ibos needed Biafra then neither did he know that d country needed to be restructured for a better nation,even when d wole Soyinka’s group were clamouring for a sovereign national conference at d time he was in fed gov? And thàt all the ibos didn’t realised it was an opportunity for them d ibos to get their Biafra and resource control when their brother GEJ was d president only for it to come to their consciousness when a Fulani and an opposition party bcam d President. They now want buhari to give them what they didn’t demand at d time they had d chance,when their IBO man was d President.cant we read in between the lines here?the ibos, and every other Nigerian, we shud stop deceiving ourself to think all this group of public money looters are doing now is for the IBO person’s interest, except u are one of d beneficiaries of stealing is not corruption. This is just d group finding a way of getting one of their own out of jail by making his charges seem ordinary. It’s not breaking away that ll develope the SE or any other region,bt by ordinary SE persons detecting the criminals governing them in d east and getting rid of them from govt corridors and powers

    No genuine agitation or democratic view should be suppressed, with that I believe the majority agree. But it has to be said that the means that was employed by KANU and his immediate followers were not right and should be condemned. Having said this the present administration has done the same if not more by disobeying court orders, because in a democracy court orders supercede executive orders only in times or a case of a state of emergency. Being from a military background one can understand the mindset of the president but in a democracy elected officials have to abide by democratic tenets whether or not such tenets suit our ideology or not. If the executive isn’t happy with the decision of the court it should appeal but the status quo must remain.

    • eko

      He was earlier charged on lesser offences while DSS amassed evidence against him for the capital offence of treason.
      The DSS filed the charges for treason against him same day the court granted him bail on those lesser charges and had good reason to rearrest him in costudy and arraign him for treason. treason is not a bailable offence. He had tried to get bail from court for the new treason charge but was refused by both a federal high court in Abuja and the court of appeal. (Search google)
      There’s no foul play as every move by the DSS conforms to the ACJA 2014

      • kayode Olufade

        In that case, I stand corrected and thanks for the enlightenment

      • Paschal Charles

        You missed it all man. Kanu has never been released not to talk of being rearrested . Before you talk of rearrest you must have released . Court order was issued to release Kanu but Govt ignored the order and instead pressed treason charges in the next court sitting to substantiate the reason why they are still keeping him. All is an order from the dead President who indefinitely rules the ZOO from the UK fridge.

        • eko

          What about the part reference to his application for bail which had been refused by both the federal high and the appeal courts? Didn’t his lawyers remember to tell the court the state was holding the suspect illegally?
          I can bet you’re no lawyer, but you don’t have to be to know how the criminal justice system works. When you obtain order for your bail if you are facing any charge, you’re not yet out of the hook until the bail conditions are perfected before the presiding judge. So if KANU took a month after the date of order to meet the terms of his bail.,did you expect the DSS to wait until he do so after years so that Kuje prisons could release KANU before they file charges for treason and have to lose him?

        Dear Tony, it takes two to tangle. Simply watch Kanu’s video against the good people of Nigeria and tell me truthfully if what he did was proper in his so-called agitation for Biafra. By the grace of God, I have been privileged to read lot of books on history and I assure you, I have never seen where Treason is classified as a “none-issue” as you put it. It is typical for your likes to blame the Govt and other ethnic groups for your misdemeanors …nonetheless just remember that, when push came to shove, Ojukwu the progenitor of the Biafra struggle left the country as innocent Igbos perished in their thousands for his irrational indiscretion. I know the Nwabuezes’ the Ekwueme’s have already soiled their regalia…but by the way, is it these crop of political jobbers that can lead Igbos? Smh…

Are they telling us that these issues just came out of nowhere ?. I’ll like to know what they were saying when kanu was going around talking rubbish running his mouth about what he will do to the country and her citizens. I bet they were quiet then and now they are so concerned . I’ll bet my lunch money the day he is let out of the cage some folks will invade this forum and others that he was let out because the country was scared of the biafraudian and what was coming.

      • Julius

        Does it ever occur to you that I’m paying you and him back with the same coins ? Genius, figure that out. By the way, I do not comment in any other forum. Its funny that you all whine when that happens. Typical bully trait ?

        • Tony

          I don”t know what you mean by “likes of me”, not everyone here insults people like you…but anyway, according to your logic, Kanu might be insulting the likes of you who must have insulted him, does that make sense? So tell me again the difference between you and him? because you should be in there with him..

          • Julius

            Jeez, did I use “likes of you ” ? …”Please, point out my writing about wanting to destroy the country or any other part of her.” . Why asking the difference again ? I’m sure you are not a blind man, are you ? I bet you are just pretending not to have read and understood that answer to your belated question. Maybe you ought to read my response again sir. Good day !

          • Tony

            Apologies for the “likes of you” comment. I meant to say and I quote…”Does it ever occur to you that I’m paying “you” and him back with the same coins”. I am not holding brief for Kanu, but you my friend, are filled with the same hate you accuse him of.

          • Julius

            Apology accepted !. Is telling the truth being hateful ? No, I hate no one but, I’ll can you what you call me. That’s not hate, that’s standing up for number 1….me !!!!

          • Tony

            Good for you, so he insults you, and you scream crucify him…., then you insult other people (including him), then is all good?, like I said, you need to be locked up too for insulting others, how’s that?

          • Julius

            Now I know that you are seeking attention and talking bullshit. Kanu wasn’t locked up for the insults. If you are honest with yourself, you will know that. He was locked up for preaching and inciting violent against the country. He was also asking for arms to fight the country. You really should stop lying and deal straight up with facts. That comment exposed your half ass fake conversation.

          • Powerlessconscious

            KANU was locked for inciting violence again Nigeria. He boasted and was demanding for arms.
            Is that acceptable anywhere in the world?
            Why will you boast to have integrity and still supporting kanu METHOD of cessation from Nigeria?

          • Julius

            No mind him. They can’t face the truth as you can see.

        • thusspokez

          By the way, I do not comment in any other forum

          Liar, what about your comments on the Sahara Reporters forum and also the Punch forum?

          • Chym

            Don’t mind him

      • thusspokez

        The poster is despicable; a triibalist and a throwback to the primitive era when his type of people wore tribal facial marks.

        • Tony

          Talk about deplorable…SHM

        • Chym

          Very ugly set of people, yorubastards

        • Julius

          Tribal marks or human flesh eater ? Humm, which is worst .. primitive, despicable and vulture like ? Answer me cannibal.

    • eko

      You dey mind them?
      They’re just bloody politicians trying to cory favour for next elections.
      Even in prison that terrorist is still spitting fire about how he desires to bring the “zoo” down so that biafrans could go and these supposed elites are exposing their petinence making ephemeral speeches that evaporate with morning dew.
      A person is taking in for treason ready for trial and educated illiterates are talking about release him.! Release a treason suspect on bail?? Ever heard of that anywhere in the world? Hmn!

      • Julius

        Yep, that’s how they roll, lying to themselves and heaping blames on everybody else. I never seen or heard these 2 individual cautioned Kanu when he was running around , scamming them and abusing the entire country about some failed project called biafraud. Now they are calling press conference. I actually respect both of them but, I disagree with them on this issue. No so oo my broda.

        • eko

          Nigeria is a stable and fortified nation if we have more educated honest youths on the average. I really don’t care if a number from a particular ethnic group chose to be perversed or patholically skewed as to what the real issue of our survival involves…
          We only need to sustain our positive comments so that the light will continue to conquer the ignorance. I pitty the honest sincere Nigerians out there who do not have sufficient education to sensor the lots hitting them daily by way of misinformation.

          • Julius

            I’m with you 100%. Respect !!

        • John Koffi

          let peace rain in Nigeria let us learn how to love one another let us learn how to forgive one another no one is above the mistake

          give the young man Kanu freedom

          • Julius

            lolz, why do you talk with both sides of your mouth ? I guess Osama Bin Laden should have been spared to let peace rain. Right ?

    I seem to wonder how “a people” will in over four decades have Governors, Senators, House of Assembly Members, Kings and many more influential personalities in the corridors of power and business sector with billions budgeted annually by FG and States in Eastern Nigeria not forgetting monthly Federal allocations yet these People blame other tribes and Nigeria for their under development. You claim to want a nation of your own but what have you done with yourselves so far? Where are your leaders? Definitely not Soludo nor Utomi. You dont even have leaders cus if you do; that region will not be in this state today. What you have a re selfish leaders who had sucked your intelligence dry and using poverty to send jobless youths into the streets flying a flag that had maimed and killed millions in the past during civil war. The hate within had made it impossible for other tribes to trust the average Igbo man. Yet we have inter-tribal marrriages and hardworking Igbo people who had contributed greatly to the development of other regions and the economy at large – these set of Igbos will never think of a BIAFRA but NIGERIA. You want teh South-South to join the party to have a Biafra cus of access to ports but had refused to understand that the South-South people will never be a part of your violent agitation; hence Biafra is a land-locked nation if at all such a nation will ever exist. You fly the flag of Biafra within Nigeria’s territory like Boko Haram did with their’s, Kanu making hate remarks on Biafra radio with pictures of armed youths and training camps, he came into the nation without a record to back he’s entry…….definitely that makes him an enemy of the state and a threat to national security. Soludo and Utomi need love from the Igbos after neglecting their people for years; thus many Igbos dancing to their tune of selfish political ambition – if i may ask; What happened to Volkswagen Nigeria under Pat Utomi’s watch? Very soon you all will realise that as Igbo nation, your leaders had failed you and also brought under-development to the region. Those are your enemies and not the NIGERIAN STATE.

    • Chym

      When did you redraw the map of Eastern Nigeria? Do you know the state where prof Utomi hail from? In case u don’t know he’s from Delta state and Igbo are majority in South south. Then calling south east a landlock region is delusional, it shows you are an empty brain. No political zone in this failed country is more develop than south east, travel an see but we Biafrans are not talking about that rather we are talking about having a country of our own where rules and laws are obeyed, where justice and equity reign supreme.

    Dear Editors of Premium Times.
    Thanks for the opportunity extended to the reading community for necessary comments, From the various commentators, it seems many of us do not understand the meaning of expressing overselves in a constructive and cultured manner. As one could see, many are just projecting their ignorance believing they went to school. Am aware many of us cannot read in between lines. That you arraigned somebody before a Court of competent jurisdiction and same Court decides to release the person on bail and you the authority that arraigned him refuses to open such ruling. My humbly question is, why did you charge such a person to Court in the first place? My simple advise to all is that tomorrow is pregnant. Do not say you were ill advise by anybody. Those of us that are exhibiting such ignorance in the name of closing their eyes to the truth would have themselves to blame at the last day. Finally, the world is watching all of us. .
