President Muhammadu Buhari has been told by the Coalition Northern Groups (CNG) in a press conference on Monday, November 22 not to release the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, the spokesman to CNG said that Buhari will be held responsible for any unlawful activities of Kanu that may lead to blood shedding of northerners.
The statement reads, “Any attempt by the President to accede to the demands to release, without prosecuting and punishing Kanu, will inadvertently reduce Nigeria to a completely lawless state where criminals of all shades will commit crimes against the country, and then ask their traditional rulers and other regional or tribal leaders to press for their release.”
Suleiman alleged that Kanu had ordered the killing of about 1,230 northerners in the country, including properties worth million of dollars belonging to northerners.
According to Suleiman, “Several millions worth of business, properties and valuable assets belonging to northerners and citizens of other regions were destroyed across the south-eastern cities on the instructions of Nnamdi Kanu within the same period.”
Suleiman also alleged that Kanu and his group had killed over 400 security personnel.Click To Join HGS Media Plus On Telegram
