“The Federal Government is still negotiating with terrorists, while the same government unleashes terror on innocent citizens” – IPOB lawyer berates FG

by Damilola

The legal team of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for negotiating with terrorists while the IPOB separatist agitator languishes in the custody of the security agencies.

Kanu’s lead lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, on Sunday, said this in reaction to the Presidential media aide, Garba Shehu’s interview with BBC Hausa where he disclosed that Nigerian government negotiated with the terrorists who attacked the Abuja-Kaduna train in March and met their demand but the assailants failed to release the hostages as promised.

In reaction, Kanu’s lawyer in a statement said, “The Federal Government is still in its business of negotiating with, and settling terrorists, while the same government unleashes terror and mayhem on innocent citizens merely exercising their constitutionally guaranteed rights to self-determination.”

‘The federal government took the woman to the hospital where she gave birth to twins, and after she gave birth, he was shown that both his wife and children were in good health condition and then they were handed over to his parents.

‘After handing them over, they came up with a different issue that there are about six or seven of their children in Yola, Adamawa, who the government sent a plane to pick up.

Ejiofor went on to say ‘We expected that if we gave them the children, they would release all the victims in their custody. Then, they demanded money.’”

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was abducted from Kenya and extraordinarily renditioned because he called for a referendum, in a legitimate exercise of his right to self-determination, and he has been in solitary confinement for over a year now.

“Meanwhile, the Federal Government is dining with and giving executive/presidential treatment to terrorists. Do you still wonder why kidnapping and “banditry” is a thriving business in Nigeria? Ndi eriri eri!

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a Political Prisoner/Prisoner of Conscience, and must be released unconditionally.”
