Buhari: I will not release Nnamdi Kanu

Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday evening, said that the Nnamdi Kanu may not be released and the Biafra leader must be accountable for his actions.

He spoke during an interview aired with Channels Tv.

He stated he would no longer intervene with the judicial procedure.

The President, who spoke back to questions about a number of nationwide problems at the programme, stated: “I wouldn’t dare intervene with the judiciary.

“We can’t rule out risk of political answer, but when he’ll behave himself all well and good

“But you can’t go to a foreign country and keep on sending incorrect economic and security problems against your country and thinking that you will never have to account for what you have been doing.

“Let him account for what he has been doing.

“There is one institution that I wouldn’t dare interfere with. That’s the judiciary. Kanu’s case is with the judiciary.

“But what I wonder is when Kanu was simply in Europe, abusing this administration and mentioning too many things, I never thought really he wants to voluntarily come and defend himself on the accusations he has.

“So, we’re giving him an opportunity to defend himself in our system and not to be abusing us from Europe as if he was not a Nigerian.

“Let him come here with us and then criticise us here in Nigeria, let him be listened to.

“But people who are saying he should be released, no, we cannot release him.”
