JUST IN: Why I Will Not Release Nnamdi Kanu — Buhari



President Muhammadu Buhari has given reason as to why he cannot release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Buhari said in a recent interview with Channels Television that he would not meddle in the judiciary.

Recall that some Igbo leaders visited the President to ask for Kanu’s unconditional release.


Buhari responded by saying that it is a difficult decision to make, but that he will think about it.

When asked if Kanu would be released, Mr. President responded, “We cannot free Nnamdi Kanu. It does not have a political solution. His case will be heard by the courts. One of the promises I made to myself was that I would never interfere with the judiciary’s work. I’ve given him a chance to present his case.”

“Kanu has been making fun of us. He provided inaccurate data and made disparaging remarks about us. He must take responsibility for his actions,” the President added.


It should be recalled that Kanu is facing charges of treasonable felony brought against him by the federal government.
