Igbos’ll react if anything happens to Nnamdi Kanu – Amaechi warns Buhari govt

Following his arrest, Mbazulike Amaechi, a First Republic Aviation Minister, has advised the Federal Government not to mistreat Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Ndigbo, Amaechi said, would retaliate if anything happened to Kanu while he was in captivity.

He insisted that the IPOB leader had committed no crime.

The foremost nationalist urged the government to ensure that Kanu gets a fair trial.

“Nnamdi Kanu has not committed any offence and if anybody thinks that he has committed any offence, let him be taken to court and be given a fair trial. Nobody, I say it again, nobody should beat or maltreat him, otherwise Ndigbo will react.

“This is the time Ndigbo should react to what the Federal Government is doing to him. What is the Federal Government doing to the people in the North who are killing people and sacking them from their communities and all over Nigeria?,” Vanguard quoted him as saying.

Kanu was arrested on Sunday and repatriated to Nigeria to continue the criminal trial against him.

He was brought before Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court yesterday for his trial.

Justice Nyako adjourned the matter, while ordering his remand in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
