irked by such move by Kanu, sources in the Nigerian seat of power revealed to DailyGlobeWatch on the condition of anonymity that Buhari backed by his advisers have urged the Nigeria's strongman to remain firm and unbowed saying they stand behind him to have the detained leader confined in prison.
In a related development, our source apparently sympathetic with Nnamdi Kanu says there are ill-conceived plans by some members of OHANEZE NDIGBO to frustrate Kanu's bid to secure freedom at the regional court having being financially induced by the Nigerian government.
Said our source, ''Kanu's enemies are from his own people, some shameless members of the OHANEZE NDIGBO who have been coming here to fraternize with 'oga' to detain and slam him a life sentence''.
''I have never seen this huge act of betrayal by a particular tribe. If I may ask, why are his people like that? Some members of the OHANEZE have been financially induced to testify falsely against Kanu at the ECOWAS court'', our source added.
In a frantic move to have Kanu nailed, the Nigerian authorities, our source revealed have had the witnesses financially induced to testify against Kanu.''
His words, ''They would have no option this time but to appear before the ECOWAS court as all plans have been concluded to have them under subpoena to appear, Kanu's enemies are from among his own people''
It would be recalled, however, that Nnamdi Kanu had before now been granted bail by Nigerians courts sitting in Abuja, a move which was blocked by the Nigerian government all in a resolute bid to have the Biafran activist remain in jail.
