Controversial presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie, has revealed why President Muhammadu Buhari cannot release the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In an article written by Ms Onochie, she said Mr Kanu must face trial for the various killing of notable and average Nigerians in the South-East region.
The Personal Assistant to Mr Buhari on Social Media described Kanu as a “monster” and a “lunatic.”
“Nigerians are waiting anxiously for justice to be done. Under President Muhammadu Buhari, a due process advocate, the monster will get a fair trial, a chance he didn’t accord those he ordered their executions. The families of the slain are waiting for a fair and just closure to their nightmares.”
Onochie added, “Well-meaning Ndigbo are of the opinion that their leadership, failed them by encouraging one of them who was clearly an unwell man. They did not speak up when they should. They are still hiding their heads in the sand.
“To call for his release is to spit on the graves of Dr. Chike Akunyili, Dr. Lawrence Ezenwa, Dr. Ahmed Gulak, slain traditional rulers, students, virgins, and ordinary Nigerians of Igbo stock who lost their lives on the instructions of this lunatic, not forgetting the security operatives they murdered.
“President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has done more in terms of infrastructural development for Ndigbo, than any other government in recent times. But it’s not enough for them to align with his party.
“This is the time when stupidity will no longer help. At a marketplace, these monsters did not spare a thought for their own people who came to make a living, before engaging the might of the Federal Government in a gun battle; in a market. These people now wake up in the morning, go to a shop. Buy some biscuits and fuel. Make a recording of themselves, bragging.”
