Special Assistant on Social Media to President, Lauretta Onochie, has said that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu might not be released by President Muhammadu Buhari because of the killing of notable and ordinary Nigerians in the South East region by IPOB.
Onochie accused Nnamdi Kanu of being responsible for the death of Chike Akunyili, husband of former Director-General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, late Prof Dora Akunyili and so many others.
She wrote this on Facebook in reaction to clamour for Kanu’s release by both religious and traditional leaders, who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
She wrote: “Nigerians are waiting anxiously for justice to be done. Under President 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.
“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.”
