The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, was arrested on Sunday and brought to Nigeria. This is according to the attorney general of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
According to reports, the IPOB leader today appeared before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Some hours after the news went viral, Senator Victor Umeh was interviewed by the BBC Igbo. In his statements during the interview, he said that since Nnamdi Kanu had been arrested by Nigeria’s government, it was left for Nigeria to follow his case according to the Constitution. He also showed a lot of displeasure with Nnamdi Kanu’s method of achieving justice. According to him, the South East has always wanted peace and love to reign in Nigeria, but the leaders never agreed to achieve this through violence or going contrary to Nigeria’s Constitution.
He also advised Nigeria on the way forward. In the same way that the government arrested a man for allegedly violating the Constitution in the pursuit of justice, the government should also arrest the problem that prompted him to act.
The only way of maintaining this peace and others is by eradicating all forms of impartiality in Nigeria. If the problems that gave rise to this quest for people to achieve justice are not solved, even if Nnamdi Kanu is imprisoned, other people will still replace him.
