"I Think Nnamdi Kanu Was Kidnapped" - Wole Soyinka Says There Will Be Uproar When The Truth Comes Out

 "I think Nnammdi Kanu was kidnapped" - Wole Soyinka Says There Will Be Uproar When The Truth Comes Out
Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has disclosed his verdict on how the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu was arrested, saying he thinks Kanu was rather kidnapped.

He warned that there will be a “huge squawk” if the truth is known about how the Federal Government arrested the leader.

Wole Soyinka said this during a recent interview with BBC Pidgin.

“It’s not for me to tell the president to prepare itself because it’s going to be a huge squawk when the truth about how Kanu was arrested comes out. People are alleging this or that. That is one phase of whether Nigeria has acted outside international law.

“The second issue, however, has to do with Kanu’s conduct outside the nation. There’s been a level of hate rhetoric which has been unfortunate, from Kanu. Hate rhetoric is an issue that can only be judged by the laws of any nation.

“Was it right ‘to have been kidnapped?’ You can say intercepted as much as you want but I think Kanu was kidnapped. That is wrong internationally and morally.

“The government can not wash itself clean on what seems to be a kind of comparative energy in pursuing the destabilized forces in the nation,” he said.

Kanu, who is facing an 11-count charge of treason, treasonable crime, terrorism, and illegal possession of firearms, among others charges, jumped bail in 2017 and fled out of the country to Israel and then to the United Kingdom.

On Tuesday, he was re-arraigned before a Federal High Court in Abuja and ordered to be remanded in the DSS's custody, with the case adjourned till July 26 and 27.
