Activist and former PDP spokesperson, Deji Adeyanju has criticised Igbo leaders for failing to speak up against the arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Adeyanju made this comment on Saturday via his Twitter page. It will be recalled that Kanu was arrested arraigned in court by the DSS on Tuesday where he was remanded in their custody till July 26th.
According to his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Kanu was subjected to torture and is currently suffering from a heart related ailment. Adeyanju wrote;
“Igbo leaders so afraid to speak up on the Nnamdi Kanu issue. Almost the entire North still standing with killer herdsmen.”
“Only Abaribe, Ortom & Wike have spoken up.”
He also argued that Nnamdi Kanu should be released on bail. “If Gumi, all the killer herdsmen are roaming the streets free, then Nnamdi Kanu should be released on bail to attend his trial from home.”
“The Court can even restrict him to Abuja this time around.” he tweeted.
