August 28, 2017 – Ijaw Youth Leader Urges Buhari To Suspend Plan To Rearrest Nnamdi Kanu, Says People Will Think He’s Religiously Biased

Ex-President of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), Worldwide, Mr. Udengs Eradiri today urged the FG to suspend plans to re-arrest the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Here is what he said in Yenagoa Bayelsa today;

“Instead the government took steps that made Kanu popular among the masses, especially the youths, in the Southeast, who shared his belief and pledged allegiance to him,” he said.

“The truth is that the Arewa youths did their own threat to the existence of this country and nothing was done amidst all the calls for the arrest of those people, who threatened others living in other parts of the country under the nose of the government.

“Nobody said anything. The international community, everybody screamed and nothing was done. Now the federal government is pushing for the re-arrest of Kanu. Can’t you see the mobilisation that Nnamdi Kanu has done in the recent time?

“Any attempt to arrest him will be resisted because the government seems to be religiously biased. Asari Dokubo sometimes ago didn’t do as much as what the Arewa youths did before he was arrested.

“OPC leader and Uwazurike were all arrested for similar offences that were not as grave as what the Arewa youths did. So, if you did not arrest Arewa youths and you are calling for Kanu’s arrest, you are going to cause problem in the country.

“Kanu has a right under the United Nation’s Charter to demand for self-determination. Who was Kanu before the government arrested him? It is the government that mishandled the entire thing and made a hero out of him. Any further mismanagement of this process could lead to a different ball game.”

  1. Well said. The question remains, Is this government ready to listen and reason?
    When the law becomes a tool to harm those who the leadership dislikes instead of a tool to protect the society.
    The law becomes lawless and anarchy becomes the law.

    Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and Life.

  2. You are well informed, to help you more, government did not mishandled anything that lead to him being popular, this is a smart guy (WITH ALL IPOB MEMBERS)with a well calculated move and who stands on the truth,but above all, there is a divine intervention, God of justice is with Nnamdi Kanu…Nigeria government knows that, while the World is watching.

  3. They will not arrest anybody, they want to put fear in him but it will not work. The medicine buhari receives in london is still disorganizing his brain. How can you arrest a president of another country? What is it that fulani hausas do not understand? We are biafrans not nigerians, never.

    One day if care is not taking this same buhari will order the arrest of jocab zuma of sauth africa. And he can not arrest a feww rat in his office? Nonsence.
