"Buhari Should Withdraw Army From The East and Leave Nnamdi Kanu Alone" - FFK | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to the reported Nnamdi Kanu house arrest after the Nigerian army reportedly surrounded his house in Umuahia, Abia state.

Recall, Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor had yesterday cried out to the public over concerns about the IPOB leader’s safety, claiming his client has been placed under house arrest by the Nigerian army.

Kanu’s counsel, also claimed soldiers allegedly invaded the IPOB leader’s country home in Umuahia

Now, the former minister, who took to his Facebook page condemned the action of president Muhammadu Buhari vowing to hold him responsible should anything happen to Kanu.

He wrote;

The behaviour of the military against a defenceless and unarmed civilian population in Abia state is reprehensible.

What has Nnamdi Kanu or indeed the Igbo people done to warrant this primitive show of barbarism and force? We are on the brink of a total breakdown of law and order and a prolonged and bloody armed conflict.

I urge restraint on all sides and I call on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw the army from the east and leave Nnamdi Kanu alone.

Terrorising your own people with soldiers is not the act of a courageous man but rather the act of a tyrant, a coward and a bully.

We call on the international community to bear witness to what is unfolding in Nigeria and we will hold Buhari responsible and accountable in the event of any loss of life.

  1. We hope he and his aides will listen because they all have been behaving as though they are hard of hearing.

  2. Also international community should be aware about the attacked on HAUSA community by IPOB group which Hausa lost some life's. And their jumma'at masjid was burnt.

    1. That is just the beginning. Hausa claims they own Nigeria abi!

  3. FFK was a Nigerian when GEJ was the President but now he is a foreigner. What an irony. Foolish man

  4. FFK, if in your distorted mind you keep on asking 'what has Kanu done to warrant this?',then, you're being myopic in your post. Remember, you're one of the people fueling this misplaced agitation, supporting with hate speeches on the constituted authority and tribes. Your very utterances are to cause chaos in the country. You went as far as trying to intimidate the assembly of Yorubas in Ibadan, while the resolution was 'restructuring', you kept on echoing 'Oduduwa State or nothing'. What's the difference between you and Kanu? Yorubas are known to agitate with intelligence, not your type of motor touts kind of agitation. You're not in a position to call on Buhari to withdraw the military, because, they're there to keep peace and order, since IPOB as a group has seen itself as non Nigerian, hence, its activities fall under external aggression and this is part of the military's job to secure the country from external aggression.
