Nnamdi Kanu's Release: "Your Demand Is Heavy, But I Will Consider It – Buhari Tells Igbo Leaders

 Nnamdi Kanu
President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that a request for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, by the leaders of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, will be considered.

Kanu is currently standing trial for treason and terrorism. The president disclosed that such a demand “is quite heavy” but he will consider it nevertheless.


He said this on Friday while receiving a group under the aegis of Highly Respected Igbo Greats, led by First Republic parliamentarian and Minister of Aviation, Mbazulike Amaechi, at State House, Abuja.

“You’ve made an extremely difficult demand on me as leader of this country. The implication of your request is very serious.

“In the last six years, since I became President, nobody would say I have confronted or interfered in the work of the Judiciary. God has spared you, and given you a clear head at this age, with a very sharp memory. A lot of people half your age are confused already. But the demand you made is heavy. I will consider it.

“I said the best thing was to subject him to the system. Let him make his case in court, instead of giving very negative impressions of the country from the outside. I feel it’s even a favour to give him that opportunity,” Buhari said
