Buhari hated Igbos; release Kanu -Federal Legislator tells Pres. Tinubu



A member of the House of Representatives in Nigeria, Hon. Obi Aguocha, has pleaded with President Bola Tinubu not to be blinded by hatred like his predecessor, Muhammadu Buhari.

He urged Tinubu to release the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Barr Aloy Ejimakor, the lead counsel for Kanu had raised the alarm over secret recordings of his meetings and conversations with his client by the officials of the Department of State Services (DSS).

Ejimakor stated, “there is no way Nnamdi Kanu can get a fair trial under the current conditions of his detention which encourage the profound interference with his access to counsels and adequate facilities to conduct his defence. There is not going to be any fair trial in that kind of scenario. Impossible!”

According to the family, Kanu is being wrongfully held against his will. The family added that Kanu’s fundamental human rights had been violated under the watch of the governors, and therefore called on them to take urgent action to challenge his detention.

The letter written by one of Kanu’s brothers reads, “I am writing this letter with utmost urgency and deep concern regarding the unlawful and unjust detention of my brother Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”

The family had earlier revealed that the health condition of Kanu was fast deteriorating.

But speaking while featuring on ABN TV, Aguocha described Kanu as a political prisoner, urging Tinubu to release him immediately.

He accused Buhari of having a personal hatred and vendetta against Igbo and urged Tinubu not to toe the path of his predecessor.

He said that despite several court orders directing that Kanu should be released, then-President Buhari denied the IPOB leader bail.

Aguocha, however, expressed optimism that Kanu’s situation would end up being resolved politically.

“All the crimes and criminality, banditry and kidnapping that are happening in the South East is because of the detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“A lot of people are using his name to commit all these crimes and criminality. The peace in South East or the peace in Nigeria cannot go anywhere without the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,” Aguocha said.

Aguocha who represents Kanu in the House of Representatives said in no distant time, his constituent will walk out of detention a free man.

He insisted that Kanu had not committed any crime that would warrant his incarceration.
