Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the spiritual director of the Adoration Ministries Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Enugu, has revealed that the only thing or offer he can accept from the Nigerian government is for them to release the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, saying the IPOB leader is not a murderer.
Recall that the Federal Government had days ago, announced the re-arrest of Kanu who went underground since 2017, after jumping bail, but did not disclose how and where he was arrested.
But since then, his arrest have continued to generate diverse controversies among many Nigerians.
While some applauded the move, some criticized the government for the action.
To this end, in his reaction, the revered Catholic priest, said during a service on Sunday that he wants the Nigerian government to release Kanu, because his re-arrest is of no use to the country.
Particularly, he revealed how some government officials meet with him last week and told him he has been given two slots of job but he declined.
Mabaka said instead he told them that the slot he can accept us the release of detained IPOB leader, Kanu.
His statement reads in part
“Nnamdi Kanu is not a murderer, has anyone seen him carrying guns ? How can someone that has not kill or kidnap anybody be arrested, he queried.”
The only slot I can accept is for them to release him.”
Consequently, many diverse reactions have continued to pour in over the renowned priest’s remarks ?
