Re-arresting Nnamdi Kanu, means they want to kill him – His father reveals


Isaac Okwu Kanu, Father of the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, claims that the Federal Government are planning to kill his son over his agitation for the creation of Biafra.

In a recent interview with The Sun, the older Kanu who is the traditional ruler of Afara Ukwu Ibeku in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State said plans by the Federal government to re-arrest his son would only bring more problems than solving any.

“When they talk of re-arresting him, it means they want to kill him, but God will not allow them because my son has done nothing wrong. I am using this opportunity to call on the United Nations to call the Nigerian government to order because they are planning to kill my son. My son did not do anything; government should go after those who have committed offence against Nigeria

Re-arresting my son will definitely cause more problems for the country. Why would they re-arrest my son; to kill him? God and our people will not allow that to happen. They should realise that Nnamdi has a boy he has not set his eyes on since he was born and it was out of respect for the laws of the land that made him not to go to London to see that boy”.

Kanu’s father questioned the Federal government’s motive behind plans for his re-arrest

“Why will they want to re-arrest him? Did he kill anybody? Did he flout the constitution? Some people are saying that my son, flouted the bail condition given him by a Federal High Court in Abuja, but the question remains, what type of bail condition was that? Is it possible that a person of my son’s standing in the society could stay without meeting up to 10 persons in a day or week? So, the said bail condition was against his fundamental human rights. But that not withstanding, I know what we are passing through in my palace; trying to stop people from coming here, but there is a limit to which we can do that. Initially, the major gate to my palace had always been open, but since he came back, that gate has always been shut and we did that to stop people from gaining access to the compound. So, I don’t know what they are talking about. The court in the first place never restrained him from moving about. So, in the course of going to see one or two of his friends and those people would organise a reception for him, I don’t think there is anything wrong with that to warrant his being crucified. The question I have been asking since I heard about this planned re-arrest is whether Nnamdi is running away from the country? There is no way he would do that. Any day they want him to appear in court, he will quietly do that. I read the other day that the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami said the Federal Government did not arrest sponsors of quit notice to Igbo living in the northern part of the country because of the security implications. From what he said, it was not that the Arewa youths did not commit any offence, but the issue is that the Federal Government is afraid of what will come out of such arrests and allowed them to move freely. On the other hand, they are making move to get Nnamdi Kanu, who had done nothing re-arrested because they believe nothing would happen if they do that, but they may be making the greatest mistake. It is this treating person from a certain part of the country as being superior to others that are making the agitation for Biafra to gain momentum on a daily basis”.

He also said that;

“There is no way I will advise him to forget the agitation for Biafra because I told him from day one that I fully support him because what he is doing is for the good of his people. So, advising him to drop the agitation now because of the fear for his life would not be ideal. It is bad for one to be marked out for elimination because he said the truth”.
