Biafra: Release Kanu if he’s with you– Fani Kayode tells Army



The former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has accused the Nigerian Army of hiding the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and that it should be produced in court.

“We don’t know if the Army has killed him or not, but definitely something has happened to him and I am very much disturbed.

“And if the Army has kept him in their custody, we need to know. Nigerian soldiers should put aside this charade. The allegedly killed 28 people in Kanu’s compound is an unworthy report and for those who does not feel concerned, I say shame on them.

“We are courageous, and that is why wer are here today.”

Mr Fani-Kayode who was dressed in an Igbo attire, was in a company of another former aviation minister, Chief Osita Chidoka, at the court yesterday to show their solidarity.

The Federal Government had accused Nnamdi Kanu on 5-count charge bordering on treasonable felony, criminal conspiracy and spreading of hate speech in the country.

Kanu was said to have defamed President Muhammadu Buhari’s personality while broadcasting on 28th April, 2015, on Radio Biafra from London, United Kingdom.

Federal Government added that Kanu had “referred to Major General Muhammadu Buhari, GCON, President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a paedophile, a terrorist, an idiot and an embodiment of evil”, though knowing same to be false and have thereby committed an offence contrary to section 375 of the Criminal Code Act, Cap C. 38 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.
