Nigerian Govt will soon release Nnamdi Kanu, Igboho – Adeyanju opines


Convener of The Concerned Nigerians Group, Deji Adeyanju, opined that the separatist leaders, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho “will soon be free”.

According to him, the basis of his statement is hinged on the freedom enjoyed by Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, who he largely describes as a “bandit sympathizer”.

The government critic also said since President Muhammadu Buhari pardons terrorists, there should be no “justification” for his ‘contempt’ for separatists.

“Nnamdi Kanu & Sunday Igboho will soon be free. If the Minister of Banditry, Gumi can be free, why should people demanding for self determination be locked up? If Buhari can forgive terrorists weekly, what is his justification for the hatred for agitators?” Adeyanju wrote on his known Twitter handle on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is currently facing trial on a seven-count amended charge bordering on treason and terrorism.

Igboho is also currently in a detention facility in Benin Republic after he was arrested in Cotonou on July 16, 2021, with his wife, while trying to flee to Germany.
