Buhari to consider Nnamdi Kanu’s Release

The President of the federal republic of Nigeria, Major Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has said that an unconditional release of the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently standing trial for treason, runs contrary to the doctrine of separation of powers between the Executive and Judiciary.

Buhari said this on Friday while receiving a group under the aegis of Highly Respected Igbo Greats, led by First Republic parliamentarian and Minister of Aviation, Mbazulike Amaechi, at State House, Abuja.

Speaking to the delegation led by the 93-year-old statesman, Buhari said “You’ve made an extremely difficult demand on me as leader of this country. The implication of your request is very serious.

“In the last six years, since I became President, nobody would say I have confronted or interfered in the work of the Judiciary. God has spared you, and given you a clear head at this age, with a very sharp memory. A lot of people half your age are confused already. But the demand you made is heavy. I will consider it.” The president said.

The President condoled with Amaechi, who recently buried his wife, praying that her soul would rest in peace.

The nonagenarian had described the situation in the Southeast as “painful and pathetic,” lamenting that businesses have collapsed, education is crumbling, and a reign of fear.

Members of the visiting delegation were; former Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Bishop Sunday Onuoha of the Methodist Church, former President of Igbo socio-cultural group, Aka Ikenga, Goddy Uwazurike and Tagbo Amaechi.
