President Muhammadu Buhari kicks against political solution in the case of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).
The president made the comment on Wednesday in an interview aired on Channels Television.
Commenting on the trial of the IPOB leader during the interview, the president said: “I wouldn’t dare interfere with the judiciary.”
President Buhari also added that Nnamdi Kanu will preferably stay in Nigeria and defend himself in court and criticize the government than abusing the government from Europe.
Kanu is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony instituted against him in response to years of the campaign for the Republic of Biafra through IPOB.
In November 2021, south-east traditional and religious leaders had asked the president to grant amnesty to Kanu to deescalate tension in the zone.
