In a series of posts on his Twitter page on Saturday, Adeyanju described Igbo leaders as cowards for abandoning Kanu and not defending him.

He wrote: “Igbo leaders so afraid to speak up on the Nnamdi Kanu issue. Almost the entire North still standing with killer herdsmen.

“Only Abaribe, Ortom & Wike have spoken up.”

He also argued that Kanu should be released on bail if the federal government cannot arrest killer herdsmen and controversial Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi.
