Buhari Should Withdraw Army From The East, Leave Nnamdi Kanu Alone – Fani-Kayode
The former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to the reported Nnamdi Kanu house arrest after the Nigerian army reportedly surrounded his house in Umuahia, Abia state.
Recall, Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor had yesterday cried out to the public over concerns about the IPOB leader’s safety, claiming his client has been placed under house arrest by the Nigerian army.
Kanu’s counsel, also claimed soldiers allegedly invaded the IPOB leader’s country home in Umuahia
Now, the former minister, who took to his Facebook page condemned the action of president Muhammadu Buhari vowing to hold him responsible should anything happen to Kanu.
The behaviour of the military against a defenceless and unarmed civilian population in Abia state is reprehensible.
What has Nnamdi Kanu or indeed the Igbo people done to warrant this primitive show of barbarism and force? We are on the brink of a total breakdown of law and order and a prolonged and bloody armed conflict.
I urge restraint on all sides and I call on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw the army from the east and leave Nnamdi Kanu alone.
Terrorising your own people with soldiers is not the act of a courageous man but rather the act of a tyrant, a coward and a bully.
We call on the international community to bear witness to what is unfolding in Nigeria and we will hold Buhari responsible and accountable in the event of any loss of life.
