Nnamdi Kanu Could Have Been A Dead Man, How Buhari Stopped His Assassination Revealed

Published

on

Femi Adesina, a former spokesman to ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, has revealed in his recently published book, “Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023),” that the president stopped the elimination of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, from his hideout.

Adesina said the then government would have eliminated Kanu but Buhari prevented such a move.

Buhari’s ex-spokesman further disclosed that during a meeting with a delegation of Igbos led by Chief Mbazulike Ameachi at the presidential villa, the president ultimately decided to opt for the arrest of Kanu and his return to Nigeria to face legal consequences instead of pursuing a lethal action abroad.

“Let him make his case in court instead of giving a terrible impression of the country from outside. I feel it is a favour to give him (Mr Kanu) that opportunity. Government could have mobilised to eliminate him where he was, but we did not do that,” Mr Buhari told Mr Amaechi-led delegate.

Mr. Buhari conveyed to the delegate advocating for Mr. Kanu that the request presented was challenging for him to fulfill, yet he expressed willingness to give it due consideration.

“You have made an extremely difficult demand on me as the leader of this country. The implication of your request is very serious. In the last six years, nobody will say I have confronted the judiciary. We are developing a country, and we have to go through the pains,” Mr Buhari said.

Adesina also said Buhari did Kanu a favour by allowing his extradition to Nigeria.

He noted that the former president disclosed this during his meeting with some Igbo delegation under the aegis of ‘Highly-Respected Igbo Greats’.

He quoted Buhari as telling the delegation: “In the past six years, I have developed a system where in which I don’t interfere with the judiciary. That was why in the case of Kanu, I said the best was to subject him to the system.

“Let him make his case in court instead of giving a terrible impression of the country from outside.

“I feel it is a favour to give him (Kanu) that opportunity. Government could have mobilized to eliminate him where he was, but we did not do that.”
