Ex-Anambra gov, Ezeife accuses Buhari’s govt of ‘kidnapping’ Kanu


Former Governor of old Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has described Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, as his son.

In an interview with newsmen in Abuja, the former Governor said, “He is my son, and whatever is the situation, he is my son. They did not bring him to court.”

The former Governor was one of the eminent personalities from the South East appointed by Ohanaeze Ndigbo leadership to represent the organisation at the court on Monday to witness Kanu’s trial.

Speaking, Ezeife accused President Muhammadu Buhari government of kidnapping the IPOB leader.

“He is my son whatever is the situation. They kidnapped him from Kenya. I am disappointed.”
