FG’s plan to re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu case of double standard – Afenifere | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, on Sunday said the Federal Government was biased in handling the case of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnmadi Kanu.

Afenifere’s publicity secretary, Yinka Odumakin, accused the FG of refusing to arrest northern youths who issued a quit notice to Igbos, but was planning to arrest Kanu.

It warned that Kanu’s re-arrest would overheat the polity.
“The idea of re-arresting Kanu will overheat the polity, more so when youths in the north that issued a notice to quit were not arrested. Even after the Kaduna State Governor and the Vice President ordered their arrest, the police did nothing.
“The Minister of Internal Affairs said the youths were not arrested because they claimed they were misquoted, but a few days ago, the youths in the presence of some governors withdrew the order.
“The government is giving the impression that what is red line for someone from a particular region is green line for someone in another part of the country; I think it is better the government engaged to bring down the tension rather than strong-arm tactics that would overheat the polity.
“There is a clear double standard and that is not good for inclusiveness. What the government should do is ensure even application of the law and engage more youths more rather indulge in sabre-rattling,” Odumakin said.

  1. Is there anybody in APC doing the right thinking? I hate to say NO but that's the truth. FG won't dare to arrest Northern Youths because they were sent to do what they did by the Northern islamist elders. There's no one country in Nigeria. Let's watch on.

  2. I think you guys should know that kano violate the court order that is why FG want him re arrest, which court rule did northern youths violated? we should deal with issues please

  3. People of decency and courage must speak up against Buhari dictatorship and APC jihad government. In fact, the IGP Ibrahim Idris should go first and arrest president Buhari, VP Osinbajo, Tinubu, Lai Mohammad, parasitic Arewa Youths, Shettima, El-Rufia, and other northern terrorists before talking about IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra. Biafra is a nation and its people are peacefully seeking self-determination to exit from the murderous Islamic Nigeria. Any attempt to re-arrest Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will spell doom for Nigeria.
