However, when asked if he would release KANU, Mr President said: “We cannot release Nnamdi Kanu. There is no political solution to it. His case is for the judiciary. One of the things I promised myself is never to interfere with the jobs of the judiciary. I have given him the opportunity to defend himself.

Kanu has been insulting us. He has been given incorrect figures and comments against us. He needs to account for what he did.

Recalled that Kanu, the Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, is standing trail of treasonable charges preferred against him by the federal government.
