From the conventional point of view, prison is a restrictive place of long-term confinement for those convicted of serious crimes. Prison yards are meant for rogues, terrorists, coup plotters, killers, looters of treasuries etc. While criminals are detained, the prison too serves as a correctional facility to further prune them into better individuals ahead of their release (if they are not serving a life-in-jail sentence).
In Nigerian system, reverse is the case, it is where the government keeps the innocent in custody while criminals walk around freely. Evidently, Buhari recently freed Kabiru Sokoto, who masterminded the Christmas day bombing at St Theresa Catholic Church Madalla in 2011 and has against two court orders, detained Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB.

Moreso, after the Attorney General’s order to release all Biafran activists detained by the Nigerian government, hundreds of Biafrans are still in Nigerian prisons without court conviction and on the basis of self determination. Nigeria has blatantly shown to be a lawless entity and has been enjoying a significant level of immunity from the United Nations, Britain and the United States Government under the leadership of President Barrack Obama.
Muhammadu Buhari has vividly demonstrated beyond every reasonable doubt, that he is a terrorist: releasing Kabiru Sokoto (a terrorist serving a life jail sentence), releasing several other suspected Boko Haram detainees. His undisguised support of radical Islam and attempt to dialogue with Boko Haram are all proofs to vindicate this claim.

Buhari has on countless occasions, abused the mantle bestowed upon him as the president of Nigeria on the grounds of immunity, he has dragged Nigerian judiciary to the mud and has validated David Cameron’s description of Nigeria as a ‘’fantastically corrupt country.’’
I am yet to fathom the reason behind the release of murderous jihadist Kabiru… What gave Buhari such effrontery to release him? Could it be because he has continued to enjoy an unholy immunity from the Western powers after the war crimes he committed 1967-1970? Is he trying to say that Kabiru Sokoto was not guilty of those crimes he was convicted of?

"Why is Nigeria unreasonably silent about this? Does it mean terrorists and killers are justified to continue killing? Is Buhari planning to carry out another genocide on Biafra land using Kabiru? Is Buhari planning to send Kabiru after Nnamdi Kanu on the day of his court hearing being 26 September 2016? No wonder Nnamdi Kanu calls Nigeria a "zoo". A place where evil superceeds good. Biafrans are keenly watching and we are about to find out Buhari’s next line of action and what he plans to do with Kabiru.
It is on record that Buhari emphatically affirmed that he cannot release Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB during his presidential media chat. Buhari said he will kill Biafrans again; this he has started already by abducting Biafrans with his dogs, the DSS. They abduct secretly, kill and secretly dispose the bodies of the victims. They also incarcerate unjustly as reported by Amnesty International. Buhari sends killers in disguise of herdsmen, he sends his troops to kill peaceful protesters and has attempted to assassinate Nnamdi Kanu on several occasions in Kuje prison.

With the help of Boko Haram menace, Buhari frustrated Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure in office and through a ‘’Change” propaganda, found his way to the presidential seat. Long before now, he had committed treason; he overthrew Shehu Shagari’s government in 1983 and enthroned himself as the president. This time, he has turned around to accuse an unarmed freedom fighter, Nnamdi Kanu of treasonable felony. With the above facts, it is crystal clear (though the world preferred to remain silent over Buhari’s crimes) who the real felon is.
Muhammadu Buhari embezzled huge amount of money when he was the Nigerian Minister of petroleum, and when it was reported, he assassinated the journalists involved in the report and has yet gone away with the crime. He threatened to close down Vanguard media outfit if it failed to write against IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu. As a result, Vanguard engaged in peddling concocted stories just to satisfy Buhari’s vile thirst to further exterminate Biafrans.

To this end, IPOB cautions Buhari to retrace his steps –We cannot be cajoled by his antics to frustrate the restoration of Biafra. Nnamdi Kanu is not Goodluck Jonathan who can easily be manipulated. Biafra Writers is not the Nigerian gutter media that writes in favor of any being in fear of being killed or sacked. IPOB under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu is not the defunct MEND that soiled their hands with devils for selfish purposes.
IPOB is not Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo that dined and wined with terrorist for perishable Naira and kobo. IPOB has become a noble brand and can never stoop lower than what we currently represent.
Nnamdi Kanu is not a terrorist, he has never engaged in any malevolent attitude, he has never hurt a fly; and anyone who deemed it necessary to confirm this report can carry out investigations to validate these claims.
Law is no respecter of anyone, nobody is above the law and Buhari is not an exception. Nnamdi Kanu has longed been discharged and acquitted unconditionally after trial by the Court. IPOB is only demanding that Nigeria should show respect to the rule of law: the court orders should be obeyed and Nnamdi Kanu should be immediately released. His further incarceration will spell doom to the already endangered Nigeria.
