He pointed out the double standards in handling those involved in terrorism and similar agitations. Nwanyanwu referenced the leader of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Emmanuel Nwanyanwu, and other notable figures who have asked for Kanu’s release.

He criticized the government’s decision to keep Kanu detained, attributing it to what he described as “ancient hatred for the Igbo people.

“Recently, the five South Eastern governors came together for the first time to ask for his release, but I don’t know what he has done that they kept holding him for agitating like others,” he added.

Nwanyanwu also mentioned the extraordinary measures taken to detain Kanu, including his alleged abduction from Kenya.

He noted that since his detention, Kanu has denounced all forms of insecurity in the South East.

Nwanyanwu however disclosed that the current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, is gearing up to challenge Tinubu in the 2027 presidential elections.>>>CONTINUE FULL READING HERE
