National President of Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, Yerima Shettima, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against directing the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
You would recall that Mr. Pres. had recently disclosed that he would take into consideration the release of the IPOB agitator after a visit from some Igbo leaders delegation led by Pa Mbazulike Amaechi.
But Northern group, Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, has now cautioned against any release of the IPOB leader stating that, releasing the IPOB leader unconditionally would undermine what he has done to Nigeria.
According to Shettima: ” There is the possibility of undermining the consequences of what this man (Nnamdi Kanu) did to the country and by implication, if he is allowed to go unpunished, it would be sending the wrong message. Nobody in the history of this country has done more damage to this country since the civil war than this young man. If at the end of the day, they allow him to go unpunished after what he has done, the implication is that nobody will ever commit any offence of this nature and be punished because everybody will always refer to him. And this means that the constitution is automatically suspended in the country. This means that some people can just commit any crime at the expense of over 200 million Nigerians and get away with it” .
” Somebody can kill, pronounce killing and still get away with it; then what is the essence of condemning people to death for killing, murder when compared to what this man (Kanu) did? This is just a way of undermining the laws of our land, and indirectly they are saying the government of the day can be easily influenced. This means, somebody can commit any offence and then come to Buhari or any other government after this and seek forgiveness”.
